[While there was nothing necessarily wrong with the posts here per se, I felt an undertone of someone who enjoys the bureaucracy. Someone who idolises, who hugs the rulebook. I'm glad to say that I don't recall seeing a forum post like that on this forum. Do prove me wrong on this if you can. Also, the quote seems to derive a sort of humour from the situation, which seems unfortunate.]

The poster is now enjoying a short holiday - and the same fate awaits anyone else who posts similar code in future.
A problem happens, an inquiry, 'lessons learned', more bureaucracy, the bureaucracy solves nothing, it is ineffective and acts only as a time burden, a problem happens ...
I don't think a full-scale review of procedures will help anything. What you do is you collect a small but concrete list of case studies, and reflect on them, and use them to help guide you in dealing with tricky grey-area situations in future.
Are we rewriting the rules, or changing how they are enforced?
It's fine to have a list of rules, to indicate to people the kind of things that may be frowned upon by the forum, in case they didn't know. And it's a relatively short and well-structured, well-presented document. But what you don't want is people feeling forced to be more heavy-handed than their instincts inform them, because they have been misguided into feeling they have to. Or feeling forced to act too quickly. If the forum is a bit soft or slow in dealing with a problem, by hours, days or weeks, this is fine, and to be expected.
It's scary reading those AutoIt forum posts. It's exactly the bureaucratic, find excuses to stop anything real from ever getting done, it's better to have no software than undocumented software, attitude, that drove me to AutoHotkey in the first place.
