Because we get people on here that do disruptive things like attacking people for no good reason and doing things like proselyting their beliefs. Just like in society, there are rules to keep order.

Rules here are a guide or principle for governing action, like keeping condescending jerks from thinking only religion has rules from proselytizing here, and self righteous jerks that think they are better than atheists because they aren't . Solitary
There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action.

Because some people choose to not introduce themselves properly and instead make their first own threads outside of the introductionary subsection, for example to ask questions, before we know anything about them.

In the end, we are all standing in the dark,
trying to figure out why we are here.
But let us not choose one direction
without proof of where it is headed.

Check your pocket for matches
so we can observe and learn together
as fast friends and relative idiots.

And what is wrong with not having order?

Atheism has one rule. Lack of belief in god. Everything else is up for debate.

ooh, getting right to the passive-aggressive meta-debate! THAT's not going to annoy anyone.. lol.

Witness, if you have a question or a point, just state it. Asking leading questions is just too obvious, man.

Okay, My question is, how do you justify the use of rules on this forum?
