NO, you are presuming a mandate that is not supported by the membership of this board.

You are blowing smoke as well as you have no authority to set policy you don't own this forum. and the owners are silent.

How do you intend to enforce this policy?

Saint... you are adding to the already pervasive bad smell that is eminating from ASC these days.

Stand down.. this argument is dead

A no alcohol/drug policy on ASC would not be dictating your event rules, it would be dictating the type of games that can be advertised on ASC. The only recourse for violating the policy would take place only on ASC in the form of thread deletion (or infractions for intentional repeated offenders, based on the existing rule against posting improper content). If you want to run a game that permits alcohol/drug use before/during game, don't promote it publicly on ASC, anyone's still free to run such games privately.

At the end of the day, ASC is a convenience for hosts, not a deal breaker. All ASC would be doing is regulating its content, which is perfectly in line with its mandate.

Arbitrary moderation action without a policy in place is unlikely to happen ("We don't have a policy in place, so let's not do anything about it no matter how bad it seems") and can lead to even more fighting ("You didn't care enough to have any policy against this in place, why punish me/us/etc now?").
