I find this situation much like my lower grade level classes. The students love everything so long as they are allowed to do as they please, what they please, when they please. When a modicum or behavior modification or reinforcement is brought forth, then there's generally some type of outcry and backlash. Standard 2nd level emotional development characteristics according to Piaget.
That being said, I refer you to the EULA and ToS. When you registerted, you committed to an understanding that posts could be edited, moved, and/or closed for any reason. This is standard fare for any online community. Please be aware that the situation in which you are participating is operating fully withint he grounds set forth by the EULA and ToS.
(been a while, gotta say it...) Dig?
