- Removing large amount of content without a clear reason is considered vandalism.
- Article comments and blogs are for constructive dialogue, not back-and-forth bickering.
- Editing or deleting other user's pages is forbidden, apart from correct minor spelling, grammatical, or punctuation errors, or if you have been granted permission from the user in question. If you are asked not to edit the page at all by the user, you must comply, or receive punishment.
- Not having read these policies is no excuse to break them.
- Don't post comments in all caps. Using caps for emphasis is fine, but an entire sentence in all caps loses its effect.
