    Major refactoring:
    - Fixed formatting errors induced by the forum migration back in October
    - Re-structured rules / uncentered everything except the the title
    - Grouped rules together in "groups" and paragraphed them (§1a, §2b, etc.)
    - Added missing entries to the "Ban proceedings" area (everything which we ban for is now listed)
    - Added public rule for advertising sites in names (with link to exception list)
    - Added "Nazism" rule as its own one (to clear up any confusion)
    - Added some other missing rules (which were indirectly covered by other rules already)

    Update:
    Removed rule §4a, no advertising of links in name.
    All bans that I could find have been retroactively removed, any missed ones can be appealed.
