Is this a new policy? Don’t get me wrong, it’s just a tiny drop in the bucket of inconsistancy, but it’s laughably simple to search and bring up nearly 50 threads mentioning it (in which many are gasp links), only one of which contains any mention of moderator disapproval: references (and a link) to a thread about it which had been disappeared (and apparently threats of banning to the poster who brought it up).
So…policy or not? Even-numbered dates? What?
