Two people shorten a road.
There's another one, like "curiosity killed the cat" but there's something else that adds to that saying that I forget.

I'm not saying input from the proles is always a bad thing, but quite often it's just more expedient for an individual or small group to take the reigns and basically just get things done. Even in the world's greatest democracy you, as a citizen, don't get a say in every law that's passed... the system would grind to a halt.

Even in the world's greatest democracy you, as a citizen, don't get a say in every law that's passed... the system would grind to a halt.
However, there is still an explanation about everything.
A good case is copyright law, which tends to change overnight and behind everyone's back. Despite the media not reporting on it there are still places one can go to hear an explanation of the new laws, bills, and whatnot. They may not be calling everyone's name like, say, NBC News, but they do exist.
Even if there had been a comment about this in the rule section when it was done I would have been satisfied.

People, on the internet, the owner of the forum/community can make a dictatorship if he/she wishes. It is out of your control.
Now have a very nice day.
That doesn't mean the owner must have a dictatorship, only that it is one possible management style out of several that they can choose from. At one end you have dictatorship and the other end anarchy (basically USENET) and I think the best policy is somewhere in the middle.

This is an issue we're actively discussing, and it is due to our ongoing project of reworking the community rules. In the future, please make a new post in the lounge -- this thread was last active five years ago and we like no one to practice necromancy on the forums.
