That's it, I'm going back to hanging out at LinkedIn Q&A for a while.

I'll be deleting posts by names staring with:  S  h  e  E  p  w  and B.  (case is important)

Unless they have an:  H  U  M  P  in them (upper case only).

But if it's Tuesday, then only names ending in "er" will be deleted.

When a high tide occurs before noon (my local time), all names staring with capital letters will be deleted.

Unless it's a neap tide.

All names starting with K and I will always be deleted (upper case only).

All names ending with w and i will always be preserved, even if they're spam, if they reveal personal information, or are blatant impersonations.

On US national holidays, all Dan Denman posts will be deleted.  All posts belittling Bush will be retained.  Unless they're made by a name starting with:  l  O  S  (case matters)

Posts timestamped with prime numbers will be deleted.  Timestamps that can be expressed as a sum of squares will always be preserved, even if they list SSN's of moderators.

On Wednesdays, posts made by names ending in "er" will be randomly deleted or retained.

These simple rules will be evaluated for a period of two weeks until more can be written up and implemented.  It's hoped that by clarifying the moderation rules, less meta will take place.

If the Cosine of the timestamp of a post (treated as Grads) is negative, the post will be deleted on M W F S and retained on T Th Sa.  Except in leap years, but again in leap centuries.  (For moderators in the northern hemisphere.)
