I would say strictness depends on volume. If the bbs is heavily used, rule breakers will be punished.
If hardly anyone is using it, mods will be more laid-back. Don't want to scare people away from an already lowly populated place.
I'd be pretty laid back here as a BBS mod for the time being, given how it's like these days compared to the way it was a while ago with well over a thousand people posting here every day. We needed strict mods to instill fear in people and assure adequate compliance back then. It's interesting to see people now talking about how much they miss Poozy and BBR, but until daily traffic here sharply rises again, the mods now can afford to be more relaxed with rule enforcement.
