Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And for  more substantive answer, we're making this shit up as we go along precisely because formalising rules too early would be fatally stupid and a waste of already precious energy.

Maybe this works for you, but in my experience it doesn't work very well for most organisations and is not, in any case, in accordance with some fairly elementary principles of due process and natural justice.  I trust you don't work in the law, in management, in HR or in trade union movement, because that approach could very quickly get you into a lot of trouble.  If ET is ever to become more than a small collective, or alternatively becomes a target for unsympathetic activists it could also get ET into some bother.  The fact that ET is a voluntary body is not particularly relevant as far as the law is concerned.
