I'd argue otherwise. I'm sort of worried about mods not being consistent when classifying threads as spam or not spam. Take this thread and this thread into consideration. The Christmas thread has a link to an article and calls The Guardian and CNN fake news. The immigration thread expands another thread which was IMO, poorly created because of its either-or nature and actually mentions stats from the article in the OP. The vague wording in the thread ("This also does not follow the standard guidelines to a debate/discussion as there is no substance to discuss or debate on. Please update your OP to provide actual substance for discussion or this thread will be locked.") really doesn't address which point. I believe the mods stating which point was broken by posts (not just Roz's, but all) would improve the overall state of the forum over time. Kaizen is a strong force.
In the Discussions Guidelines thread, Four clearly states that posts will be moved. When did that change?
