    Q - I think we should allow folks to provide opinions based on facts provide. So may be guideline 1 should be
    Provide facts/data and/or objective opinions based on available facts/data.

    Thanks Viz. Good find. I changed the verbiage. Please feel free to directly modify if you think it needs to be further improved.

    Same with other moderators. Please feel free to make a change to the original post.

    I am also split on which of those above are rules vs guidelines. In my mind - a guideline is just that. We leave it to the forum participant to then adhere to it. But a rule is something that the forum participants must follow. Non-adherence could invite punitive action from moderators.

    So having said that - if you think certain rules should be more like guidelines OR vice versa, then please move them around as well.
