    Default Rules of Conduct question

    I want to make sure I'm being circumspect about the rules here, so I'd appreciate a mod's opinion about one of the clauses in Section 3.
    Any images or wording in posts, signatures, avatars and profiles containing firearms, knives and weapons … are not permitted and will be removed without notice
    My concern is about pocket watches, as at one time it was fairly common to use a small folding knife as a watch fob, & I have been known to do so myself. If an incidental mention of such a thing, or its appearance in a photo, is going to cause trouble, I prefer to avoid that. But if I don't have to worry, I'd rather not!

    Thank you for asking!
    When that rule was formed, we had an increasing number of members who were shooters and "outdoor sportsmen". WTF wanted them to focus on watches and save their other collectables for their other collector's sites. Incidental mentions are allowed...it's the gratuitous and off-topic photos we're looking to avoid.

    A small penknife attached to a watch chain isn't going to be a problem!
