    Trying to find a copy of the rules of this forum.

    There's a link on the main page, titled USMB Guidelines for Posting. When I follow it, I get an error page, telling me that “You do not have permission to view this page or perform this action.”.

    Under the “Announcements and Feedback” subforum, there's a sticky titled USMB Rules and Guidelines. Following that link gets me the same result.

    Bob, I've always been taken back by the crazy number of forums, zones and rules here and the fact that they are all zone based yet you never know what zone you're in! See anything on this page telling you what zone you're in right now? What the guidelines are? Long ago I studied it all and cooked it all down into a simplified, congruent chart, easy to understand. I've even bounced it off moderation and they verified it approved and accurate. If you don't get a good answer here and want, write me privately and I'll send you a copy.

    seemed to be in plain English.


    (hmm, maybe that's the problem)

    Sure. Please send me a copy.

    For the most part, I don't seem to have much trouble running afoul of the rules, though there is one rule that I have been infracted for a number of times (unjustly, I think), and which I now believe that someone (who happens to be one of the moderators) is intentionally trying to bait me into violating.

    I wanted to be able to read the rules, the better to avoid being baited into crossing the line, but it seems that I am not allowed to read them at this time. Very convenient for one who is trying to lure me across the line, for me not to be able to see where that line actually is.
