This is a public forum. Making "regulations" for what personal information people NEED to share is wrong.
OTOH, if a poster asks a question, etc, they need to understand that we members are NOT mind readers. We need to know details to give intelligent answers. Forcing members to ask for those details wastes everyone's time.
I'm sure that "poster education" will be more useful than "regulations" in the long run.
That's why we are here, isn't it?
