[April Fool] Platform Wars now banned from the main forums

The moderating team are pleased to announce the introduction of another opt-in only forum, "Platform Wars".

From today, any discussion of Mac vs PC vs Linux or iOS vs Android vs Blackberry are banned from the main forums. Any such posts will be deleted without warning. Persistent offenders will be warned and may be banned.

This is a follow-up to the successful elimination of discussions of Politics and Religion from the main forums by the introduction of the opt-in Politics and Religion forum.

If this new forum works well, we plan to introduce another opt-in only forum "Dead Horses", which will become the home for an expanding list of topics that will be maintained in the MobileRead wiki.

Ultimately, we intend that MobileRead should only contain post that are precise, accurate, pertinent concise, polite and informative. All other posts will be relegated to opt-in forums or deleted out of hand.

In this way, we expect to reduce the new message count on the main MobileRead forums to one or two a month, so freeing up valuable reading time for all our members.

Welcome to the start of a new era for MobileRead!


Spoiler:
Yes, this is an April Fool.
