I mean, I look at it now, and it's so obvious. But I was so engrossed in the characters that I didn't really look for such things.

I really enjoyed the unstated implication of the ascended Ancients being the basis for a lot of Christianity. They weren't quite bold enough to point out the connection outright, but it was definitely there. They got a lot of respect from me for doing that. Not very PC.

It could also be argued that some Fundamentalist could have a problem with any Trek religion because it isn't the same as their religion.

Personally, I'll be giving low marks to missions with typos, shiny vampires, and a lack of originality.
As I wrote, I didn't say all people belonging to these groups thought like that. Of course some Atheist have no problem with religion etc. What I'm worried about is that the Foundry can't handle these types of groups.

Yes, they will loose their rights. But what will happen to the missions they have created? Let's say someone writes a bunch of missions then loose his marbles and starts running around flagging other writers' missions as inappropriate, eventually his rights are withdrawn. Will that mean that person can't make new missions, ever? Or just for a specific time period (1-6 months)? What happens to the missions he already published? Or is it only the right to review other writers' missions that is revoked?

Only the rights to review content is withdrawn in this instance.

I suppose there will also be rights to make content that can be revoked if you repeatedly get caught trying to break whatever guidelines Cryptic and CBS put forth. This is just conjecture, since I don't recall seeing it touched on directly, but would make sense.
