Global Rule #15

Alright, the topic on all of our minds, why isn't global rule 15 ever truly enforced?
For those to stupid to memorize the rules, or to apathetic to go look at them, Global Rule #15 states "All pony/brony threads, images, and avatars belong on /mlp/."
Also, general non-enforced rule thread.
4chan is not 4chan anymore

I have been on and off 4chan from the beginning, remember even when it had a loli board and people like BukiBuki.
I have seen it change and evolve over the years, mostly for the worse, mostly due to a larger userbase (according to my opinion) and thus an influx of "normalfags".
And if I had to sum up 4chan in one word it would be: Freedom.
Freedom to post anonymously.
Freedom to post and call someone a faggot without being worried about being banned for being "rude" to someone over the internet.
Freedom to post the most porngraphic and guro pix you can find.
Freedom from most rules that stifle the other 10000000000 other image/text boards.
However, userbase aside, since it can be dealt with, my growing concern is not that but the janitors/mods and thus by extension, Moot himself.
1) Recent focus on cracking down by janitors/mod on posting porn pix in "SFW" boards
If one is to assume that janitors/mods do not act completely independent of Moot's direction, I can only see that this practice and order must come from Moot himself. Thus, to Moot directly, I ask:
When did 4chan become a mature imageboard for mature imageboard owners like yourself?
I am not alone in this feeling to be sure, where as a new 4chan, recurring meme I see recently is: "4chan is now a Christian imageboard" in reference to deleted images on SFW boards.
2) Janitors/mods being del/ban happy (especially so in /jp/) and especially about posts that call janitors into questions about such practices (are we not allow to question their actions? Is 4chan a dictatorship now? Did we have to fill out form /q/-zed-48783-fxk-gov.de.jp.co-4878 no in order to "check" our bureaucracy?)
As the image shows you aren't even allow to question straight up contradictions.
On ban evading.

A question/suggestion to devs and m00t. I'm not strong in the ways of kompooter and I apologize if this has been asked before, but here goes.
Is it possible to ban a geographic location rather then just IP? If I recall correctly even dynamic IPs should give enough information, including geo-location. Ban evading is done by simply resetting the IP, but you can't reset your location. If massive amounts of shitposting flows from one location, blocking that particular location should fix the problem. If that is possible of course.
Remember that ominous site some /g/ users found, where shitposters kept track of how much they shitposted? Just imagine how much shit could be reduced by banning their and other malignant users locations.
So, can this work? Not gonna hold my breath bu sure hope it does.
A board for /b/ Risk

I'm sure most of the mods on /b/ know about Risk, and how it's pretty damn different from the rest of /b/ (gore, loli, stoner threads, steam giveaways, etc) so i'm requesting that you make a new board just for Risking, a board that is devoted to only Risk games and Risk-related topics. What do you say?

Reviving dead embers, but who cares?

The outright banning of all things zeitgeist: who's idea was this?
Flawed methodology, check: Over ambitious, tchieck: Annoyingly abused as irritant to "conservative" valued folks, check-A-roo!
You've got half the damn site devolving into something /new/ and abysmal, ill-mannered children posting like this was their pers. schizoid blog, self destructive ideologies controlling discussions that would make a Coke-Head Reaganite fuck off to Tibet...
What Constitutes a General Thread?

>"Generals"-long-term, recurring threads about a specific game-should be posted in /vg/. This is not to say threads about specific games cannot be created on /v/, just that long-term, recurring threads belong in /vg/.
I'm an idiot, so bear with me.
Over the past several months, there have been a ton of recurring "hype" threads on /v/. They aren't exclusive to any particular series, just to upcoming releases. There are often hype threads for a specific platform (3ds, wii u, etc) where the OP text is identical. The only thing not making these identical to a general thread on /vg/ is a link to the previous thread.
Did Moot really say that a thread must link to the previous thread to be considered a general?
Sorry if this has already been explained and I'm just an idiot that hasn't seen it yet.
