The "rules" are more relaxed in other forums, but the site owner and mods apparently think it's important.

I think it's not about treating newcomers like children, it's about not given them the impression that we all are bickering children - which will make it more likely they'll leave, and not get anything positive from the site that might help them.
Since this new Forum was set up very recently, I hadn’t read any posts from “bickering children”. I’d only read reasoned posts, and I do hope it’s allowed to continue, for the benefit of Newcomers that find their way here.
