Believe me - no thread is deleted for no reason.
Firstly - Here's your link to the rules.
I understand your point about the time limit - and certainly it can be looked at more, but the problem is that what's offensive to one person may not be offensive to another - so reports may only come when a member sees a post down the track. The other problem is that once something is posted - it's in the public realm forever. I'm thinking you're asking for an amnesty period - but then, it wouldn't mean that the post which is seen to be offensive stops offending others who may unwittingly see it down the track, just that it hasn't been seen by a member.
As for rollyeye guy. This emoticon was removed for a number of months as he can certainly be deemed offensive, and was being used to make some members feel belittled. I'm pretty sure that it is obvious roll eyes guy is there to denote exactly what rolling eyes denotes in real life, which is often offensive as it is dismissive of another person's comment or action.
All of the emoticons are there to be used in lieu of text - they all mean something - therefore there is always intent when an emoticon is used, so I'm not sure what you think any disclaimer would say or achieve? A disclaimer for the user that when they are using it they mean no offense, or a disclaimer from bubhub that rolly eye guy can be offensive.
Problem is that any number of things can be deemed rude or offensive - it's the context in which they are used which sets the tone.
