inconsistent linux forums rules
I've just glanced over the Linux Forums Rules and I found this section inconsistent:
And also this section:
NO images in signatures - Seeing large flashing images in between every other sentence is the most annoying thing in the world, therefore absolutely NO images are allowed in forum signatures. You may include one (1) non-animated Emoticon in your signature.
The reason is that there are three animated smilies available for users: :banana: :drown: :dazed:
No animations - Regardless of how small the animation is. Some people find animations distracting when reading a thread. Because of the issues that would arise if we allowed some animations but not others, the policy is no animations at all.
Whatever the moderators decide for rules, they should be consistent. The explanations quoted above don't make sense if there are animated smilies available.
