comet... "so, powerfull mods/admins, can I make the thread "if crack were legal would you smoke it?"" Yes, you can. And if you are an unbanned user, we cannot stop you from doing so. You can ask us if you can post a certain thread. And we can tell you "no," but if you're dead-set on creating it we cannot stop you. However, we can react to the posting of any thread that is inappropriate for the forum. And take that thread content into account with respect to whether or not your status as an "unbanned user" needs to be modified as a result of the posting of a thread.
