Q.

Are qna guidelines the part of a rock testament that these can not be changed come what may?
Should the sensibilities of progessive users ignored,under these compulsions?These guidelines are for the members' convenience or the members are there for these guidelines' convenience? Since moderator just uses the whip to govern us ..... shouldn't the
members by consensus formulate these guidelines because we are GOVERNED by
these LAWS...and suffer the whip,eventually?

Change is constant. However all change happens within defined boundaries. Maybe they need to redefine the boundaries and then go through the process of rewriting the rules of the game.

Rules and regualtions are amde to maitain propriety and some semblance of order. However these rules should not be cast in iron. whenever required they should and must be bent as and when required if innocnet people are suffering due to them.

Do you think all members joined here only after reading the Q&A guidelines properly? Only when they were get once abused or blocked by someone, then they are advised to follow the Q&A guidelines. We can see many questions and answers are still running here without any proper adherence of the guidelines - for such questions and answers nobody want to report abuse. The surprising thing is that how can be these "unlawful" postings still run in the forum against the Q&A rules & regulations?

The management has formulated these guidelines to make up for their inadequacies. Since they cannot moderate each and every question and answer they rely on the users to ab**use questions which are not in agreement with QnA guidelines. In turn QnA guidelines are like a cap made to suit every body's head. For example if the question here is abu**sed then moderator would exercise his veto power to accept the abuse or not and the management is always there to defend their decision. You are right that moderators are using this as a whip to govern us. They do not want to loose the hold on the users. They target those who oppose them and not those who actually violate the QnA guidelines. The honest and sincere here are busy asking questions and answering them. The offenders are like more needles then the haystack therefore who has the time to waste on them. Now what all of us are doing here. Instead of asking questions, answering questions and gaining knowledge we are wasting our time with t ...more

Rediff Q&A guidelines hav changed a lot over time...things here were much worse 1&1/2 or two yrs ago...wen ids were blocked for ever due to personal vendetta of a few ppl taken out on report abu-se of qs and answers n comments....now the scene is much better. any senior member of this forum wud vouch for that.
now coming to the rock solidity of the guidelines...well...this aint a social networking forum...its a question and answer session...so the guidelines r drawn up accordingly. there are so many qs that r posted here everyday containing ab-usiv contents that the moderators hav to go by the rule for one is rule for all decorum...or else the forum will bite dust.
since u hav put up such a question i wud like to ask u...wat kind of change wud u like this forum to hav?? a members' consensus can only be taken if they agree to convert this into a social networking site...which it aint..so i guess u hav to make do within this curriculum only..:)

For any guideline or restriction there will be a basis. That basis will be based on some professional study. I do not think that is permanenet as it is man made. If a better proposal go to them, they may consider it. The same way as retoration of BA option.

Rediff is a private organisation and rules are framed as per their policy perhaps. This is the reason they dont change their guide lines. It is upto us to continue or not or follow their guide lines.

I feel standard of every company differs.
Some companies never care about the quality.
Such companies runs business for the sake of business.
The management is not good and the prime owner finds no time for concentration such companies goods are of inferier quality.
In spite of that some basic needs are fulfilled.
That's why the company runs.
No arguments no efforts will set right things.
Sometimes fortunately management changes, and everything will change then.
Change is inevitable.
Let us wait for change..
Until then ignore and do all what can you do.

I agree with your question, a very appropriate one at this time when acceptance of abuse reports have become mandatory ans subjective. Granted the Q&A Guidelines were formed because some rules and regulations have to be there but that does not mean that any deviation from it in a decent manner and which does not harm others have to be dealt with so harshly. And no consistency is followed too in this respect. Things have become too subjective of late . Some flexibility which may yield positive results will help this forum all the more.
