Apparently this is relatively new guidance being put out. No one cared about this while I was in (last day of active duty was 2005).
Yes. The new law, relatively speaking, was passed on Jan. 8, 2008.

This is a little worrying, though the second line makes me wonder if I am reading it correctly or not, so... just for clarification... did kittikatt get a 1 day suspension because he/she/it ratted out you guys on the credits amount change or because an edit I did not see? Also, you maaaaaay want to change the wording on the warning, as receiving one for: "Disputing Mod/GM/Admin decisions" sounds a little... oppressive? Dictatorial? Specially when it is not a forum matter (GM/Admin part?), I am perfectly ok if you want to avoid public discussions about a RO or something like that.
Not sure, but I"d say she first violated forum rules by questioning decisions of the moderators in the way that she did. She accused them of essentially lying about the way these specials are planned. This is against the forum rules
(section 2.8), and bad ettiquette regardless. For this, she received a warning. If she had asked for clarification about the change, instead of rudely accusing them, she likely would not have gotten the warning, instead receiving a very polite response like Major_Rampage provide above.
What appears to have happened next is she removed the moderator's warning out of her post. This is strictly taboo (section 4.3). For that, she received the suspension.
