Understood, and I shouldn't have implied that the description couldn't be

Myself, I'd prefer an officially "laissez faire" attitude towards non-public
content: let each group establish its own community standards. But I understand
and accept why Mark says that won't work for Groups.io.
I think we're fully agreed now (both your paragraphs), although I don't think
there's any real danger of Groups.io painting itself into a corner. In fact,
just in case there are any legal implications of that nature, it might be worth
including a note that that the code consists of Mark's rules, and that he
reserves the right to change any aspect at any time without notice.
