Well, in the very early days

we didn't have moderation, things either being dealt with by the voter-moderation-threshold feature, the Ignore List, or in dire cases, by one of the PTB just coming in and deleting whole threads at one fell swoop. It was more or less the wild west. Then, after the Forum Admin status had been created (just post-FOTR, IIRC), the rules gradually evolved over years to deal with the various issues that arose out of a much larger and more anonymous group. I don't think it's worthwhile to try to edit the old boards to fit the current state of affairs. It was a different time, and it was what it was. If we need to, we can put a general warning when entering the Realm of the Old Boards that "here be dragons".


Roads go ever ever on
Under cloud and under star
Yet feet that wandering have gone
Turn at last to home afar.
Eyes that fire and sword have seen
And horror in the halls of stone
Look at last on meadows green
And trees and hills they long have known.
