I tend to want to agree with lammert here on a few points, but you're right the policies do "choke" the discussion.
But the fact that the place is called "WEBMASTER" world also chokes the discussion. I think anyone who has started a web development career post the dot com era laughs at that title. I know I regularly make jokes about that.
The irony is that the person who introduced me to this site continues to call herself a webmaster, but she's also in her late 60s.
I'm a web developer, a web designer, an entrepreneur, a social media addict, a father, a dog owner, etc.
One thing I am not? A master of the web.
If I could come here and discuss web design with other designers. Wow, that would be awesome. I HATE the fact that every blog out there that posts a design only has comment threads that stroke the designers, er um, ego. There is never a discussion.
And if it is, it's only amongst colleagues on one of their sites. Why can't we have a centralized discussion where can share ideas, graphic treatments, links, etc.? Oh yah because we aren't webmasters and we can't link to outside resources.
