It seems to me that some people are feeling uneasy when we started the chatterbox. Suddenly it seems that people are feeling that I would be strict about casual conversation on the non-chat forums.

Let me tell you that there are really no hard and fast rules apart from the Rules that are found in the grey banner above all forum pages. Outside of those rules, I moderate on my gut level. I will at all times try to be fair and favour no one. I see that some of you are happy to live by my decisions and even feel awkward if I asked for your opinions. I thank you for your vote of confidence and I shall do that, ie make my own decisions. Not that I want to be tyranical but it takes the decision-making away from the forum members.
