I didn't get that tone from the posts.
People criticize things all the time. That is okay.
There is a difference between criticizing rules and having a rule that prohibits criticizing. I don't recall a rule that prohibits criticizing at WHT. We certainly do not have one here, but we do have a clause that prohibits harassment.
The problem for Mrs_Esterhouse came not because of criticizing a general rule, but because of repeatedly going around the censored name, avoiding the filters and then criticizing the decision-making of moderators. For any moderator having a member asking and pleading on behalf of a banned company would raise red flags about his/her association.
Having said that, I highly doubt that WHT would ban anyone for a healthy critique of a rule. But when someone intentionally acts up like mod decisions were not of any value would end up canned. They would here, too.
