That's how I took it...

Perception is interesting, I just think it's better not to base administrative decisions on it...

Well, this whole thing is kind of an experiment, you know. Trying to develop a supportive online community, I mean...

For people to feel supported, they need at least to feel safe. For people to feel safe, limits need to be set. Specific limits imply a specific "model of interaction".

Maybe having a model of interaction work here would be the primary goal and having it generalize would be a secondary goal? Does that count as an answer?

Not really, but there's a link in the FAQ, but the original seems to be gone, but Shar thoughtfully saved a copy:

I'm sorry that happened, too.
