One of the first things I do after joining a forum is read the rules on the forum.

I read the rules so that I don't do anything to upset anyone. I have a habit of posting a lot of content each visit. Some forum owners DO NOT like that.

I've been banned for posting too much a few times.

So, I make it a habit to read the rules.

How about you? Do you typically read forum rules?
