Forum Policy Changes Feedback Requested

I am looking for community feedback on possible policy changes, through the survey at the top of this post.
Not all of the items are easy to implement, or necessarily practical, but I would like to know which of them the community supports.
They have been ordered alphabetically, and not in any implied order of importance.

Please take a few minutes, and checkoff those policies you agree with for forum management.
I will report any actions we take as a result.

Current forum policies:
Quote:Please use English, and proper English at that.
Be respectful of others; personal differences should be handled elsewhere.
Do not use this forum to promote your non-related business.
Offensive language will not be tolerated. Spam is offensive.
It's a good idea to check if your question has been answered already.
Use meaningful titles when creating new threads.
Stay on topic.
Do not knowingly post copyrighted material.
If you want to format your posts, or to include code in them, use MyCode tags.

Reminder: newly registered users have their first two posts moderated. This may take a few hours or a few days, depending on what the volunteer moderators are up to.

Current moderation practices for policy implementation:
- purge blatant spammers (posts, site, signature)
- warn users re off-topic posts, spammy looking posts / sigs
- warn/purge thread hijackers
