Unless care is taken to delineate what constitutes as meaningful and what is not than you're only going to invite inconsistency because what is a meaningful post to one person isn't meaningful to another. I could go through every other post and report them as non meaningful.
You're not wrong, there is intentional wiggle room for the moderators so that we can have our policy evolve as necessary. We discuss actions and interpretations regularly, however, so I'd worry more about maintaining decorum than any kind of moderator issues. The GB has become a festering wellspring of foolishness and that is what necessitated this harsh policy. It's not designed to be flowery and pleasant.
Having said that, you also need to understand that if once every now and again you make a one-word post that isn't profane or baiting or whatever, we're not slavering at the end of the leash to get you and it won't lead to Read-Only Access. Unless the poster establishes a habit of chronic derailing and lack of contribution. We're looking to sift problem posters, not casual folks who don't write books with each post.
