Looks very good, the only quibbles I have...

: I've tried to incorporate your thoughts into a
: forum policies page. Check the link in the
: forum header to see my draft of this. In
: particular, I worked hard to properly
: address the TAG issue -- hopefully I didn't
: overdo it.

Looks very good, the only quibbles I have include the indicated passages below..

5. Links to pages that list Web Dealers, E-Tailors, etc. will be allowed as long as those pages themselves are noncommercial. In other words Hobbyist Dealer Lists will be allowed just as Hobbyist Informational Sites (like Eric So's mentioned above) are. In fact I maintain a listing of watch dealers and am always looking to add listings, email me and I'll add just about anyone (except for obvious counterfeiters).

We need to word this so that "I" is either me by name, or ,,one of the forum coordinators/moderators, etc...,, ...

I'd like to expand on this section a wee bit:

Postings that turn into quibbling, griping, slaming or otherwise disparaging portions of the family tree are unacceptable.

I was thinking something more along the lines of "There sometimes is a fine line between politely explaining why one prefers a specific model and quibbling, griping, slaming or otherwise disparaging portions of a product line or the family tree. It's nearly always best to try to err on the side of civility and politeness."

The rest of it looks fine. I'm sure we will refine it as time goes by...
