1. No ad-hominem
2. No spamming or shilling
OK, I will also make some predictions for 2018:
Seeing 'Dunn agents' all around him, Marco will instigate the ultimate sanction by removing all of the letters N, V, & A from all posts on AOS (in future to be known as 'OS').
He will store these 'saboteur characters' in an underground pit dug into moorland overlooking his neighbouring village of Royston Vasey and camouflaged with heavily skid marked briefs donated by his 'inner ring', also known as the 'gang of 3 turds daily'.
There are, inevitably, some unintended consequences:
Marco insists that his 'TOY' speakers are the best and bans anyone who laughs at this, reducing the active membership from 160,000 to 14.
Macca's blog becomes the MCC blog, attracting hundreds of elderly upper class chaps to join up and start spamming the wearing of stripey blazers during bake offs.
YNWAN is reduced to YW (You're Without) and is adopted by Struth to serve in his dungeon as a eunuch.
Hifi_Dave becomes hifi_de and finds himself a figure of worship for German neo-nazis who misinterpret his all consuming spamming of 'Rega' products as a loving homage to the WW2 concentration camp at 'Riga'.
Arkless reappears with the username 'Potless' to try to get the last word in the long running 'Phoo vs BC' plugs debate.
BigMan becomes BigM and releases his own range of chocolate flavoured bullshit drinks...

Study reveals smut addiction. Severe social, relationship and legal problems hit habitual users.
Habitual users of smut often mess up their lives, according to preliminary analysis of a new study conducted by University of Sydney.
Dr Gomathi Sitharthan from the Univeristy’s Faculty of Health Sciences and Professor Raj Sitharthan from its Department of Psychiatry surveyed 800 habitual smut users and found “excessive users had severe social and relationship problems and had often lost their jobs or been in trouble with the law as a result of their addiction.”
Some even “escalated their behaviour to more extreme and often illegal behaviour.”
The researchers found that 43 percent of those surveyed started to use smut between the ages of 11 and 13. They also learned that 47 percent spend between 30 minutes and three hours each day watching / thinking / writing smut.
85% of those surveyed were male and more than half were either married or in de-facto relationships.
Some more preliminary results include:
88 percent of respondents said they are willing to seek professional help to treat smut addicition, but would prefer to do it online;
30 percent acknowledged that their work performance suffered due to it;
20 percent of respondents said they preferred the excitement of watching smut to being sexually intimate with their partner;
Around 14 percent had formed a relationship with other online users;
18 percent were preoccupied with fantasising when they were not online.
The study was conducted because the researchers feel smut is now so accessible that it is worthwhile to understand its impact, especially as Professor Sitharthan has seen more patients presenting with problems caused by addiction.
"Watching and using smut is a learned behaviour and we believe it can be unlearned,” Dr Sitharthan says.”We are finding that people do understand that their behaviour is impacting on their lives and they want to change.”
I wouldn't touch it with a bargepole as it has had rather too many dubious mods including a Russ Andrews silencer inside it. The later most likely why he is dissatisfied with the sound.
"Lol - or having a nice big gassy FAHRT, and watching all the bubbles rise to the top, then when they burst, releasing the FULL FLAVOUR of your arse stench!! :eyebrows:
