New rule (or should I say, newly-enforced rule): diaries are to contain a minimum of 75 legitimate words. That setting is there for a reason. Thinking up 75 words about a given topic is easy. If you can't think of 75 words to say about your own topic, either (A) you're stupid, or (B) the topic clearly isn't very interesting, in which case it isn't worth sharing with the community.
How will this be enforced? For the first violation, you will get a warning. For the second violation, your post will be deleted. And for the third violation, you're gone. For good.
Exceptions will be granted for major important Mariner-related breaking news, since everybody likes to be the one to break a story, but such instances are few and far between, and if you're unsure, err on the side of caution. The consequences of being wrong are rather unpleasant.
There's a game today. Neat.
