    Not exacly a rule but breast being banned because of a filter that is in place on one site infact you could write a normal sentence and you would only have about three words visible becuase of that filter, and then you would get a message asking you not to swear even though you were not and you also could get a ban for it aswell.

    some forums actually lets you wait until they approved you and that's the time you can login and post.

    I think it's a good idea for a moderator to check your first few posts before they let you free

    Good or bad, the rules made most is to prevent from spamming. The worst rules i found is



    "No allow any URL, even the website name such as google.com", that's really trouble but it can totally prevent from spamming....lol

    It was "no posting in a different color; you can't use bold; you can't have a signature; you can't redirect members to another link/page (considered ordering members, even if it was respectful)". All on the same forum.
