Everything needs rules, a framework, codification. No spontaneity allowed. Some things are good, allowed, blessed-off on, in the SOP; other things are no-no, against the TOS, not in the handbook. Is there an ISO standard for swearing? Are people trying to earn their certification? They need to study the rules and diagrams so that they can get the credential and put a string of letters after their name and pay $450 in dues to the professional credentialing ~~mafia ~~ organization and put a badge on their LinkedIn? Reads like a bunch of eye-rolly bullshit to me. But I'm curmudgeonly.

To be fair to them I think every community has their own " guidebook " about which words are " ok " to use and which ones are " bad " to use but not every community is transparent about it at least their wiki is transparent about what they find " ok " and what they find " not ok " to " totally not ok " at least...

They're only being transparent because these rules are more aspirational and they want them to catch on. If their community really followed those rules there wouldn't be any need to explain, you just would pick it up naturally.
