Site policy: Finalized

Shortly after getting our own website, there started a few inevitable discussions about the site's policy. Bastique provided some amazing advice: what if we did something that no other WMF project had ever done? What if we actually based our site policy on the common sense of the users? At the urging of Bastique, we have written our site's policy and approved it by the "community" (which is admittedly only 3 or 4 people). I will include the text of our policy here, in it's entirety:
  1. Exercise common sense.
  2. Vandalism, Spam, Nonsense, off-topic discussion: We know it when we see it. We delete it when we know it.
Wouldn't it be nice if this caught on?
