Angry Water droplets, flowers and toothbrushes

As the purpose of TrekEarth is to learn about the
world through photography...
shots of common objects (like closeups of any
flowers or plants, water droplets, toothbrushes

What is the connection between flowers, water droplets and toothbrushes ?
Water and flowers is an important part of this world. Photos showing what is happening when a drop of water fall into water is realle beautyful and teach us about this world. The same with flowers. A closeup of a toothbrush is useless except for adverising.
I like to share my photos on TE but the way these rules are used I m not sure if I want my photos there.

Hi Keshav,

This rules were written when TE started, about 14 years ago. For other kind of photography you should try TrekLens.

Question About rules

A stupid and useless rule made 14 years ago is still stupid and useless and rules can always be changed specially if its not of any use.
Photos of flowers and waterdroplets CAN tell something about this world, photos of toothbrushes can NOT.
Toothbrushes ARE houshold items, flowers and waterdroplets ARE NOT, if you disagree, what are you using water droplets and flower for in your house??
The question here is very simple, are Trekearths rules rigid or not ?

We do our best to apply the rules of the site consistently. Whether people like the rules or not is another question completely, but by joining they have agreed to abide by them.
It can't be too much of an issue as it has taken 9 months to respond to Porteplume's explanation.

Thumbs down

IT IS NOT if people like the rules or not but if they find them reasonable or not and that is not the same thing. But again it seems that there is little use in writing anything in here, I have the feeling of communicating with a computer program and not a very advanced one.

How about common objects like trees, houses, roads, cars, people, birds, mountains, rivers. They are also common objects. :

How many people have been posting photo of their toothbrush. :
