14. No threads may be started after sunset on Friday the 13th if it is a blue moon, for it shall unmake the world.

15. Ben Phillips is not a member of the Illuminati and Alasdair has not sold his soul to the devil. Parties insisting on further inquiries in to these topics may be subject to total erasure of their existence and/or eternal damnation.

16. There is no 'ctrl' button on Chuck Norris's computer. Chuck Norris is always in control.

Oops.  *chagrin*  I thought I was being clever, and divided 22/7 by mistake.

56. Bdoomed is NOT a maid

78. All threads must slowly devolve into either silliness or boxing matches


I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

I would like to bring point 56 to a vote.  I believe the current version is false.

you cant put it to a vote, but you can try to pass an amendment for a latter rule.  I'll fight it tho.

Then I just bring it up for review.  I still think it's false. 

I would like to avoid amendments.  Anytime some group doesn't get their way, they try to pass an amendment.

*snip* I'll fight it tho.
you are already invoking 78? we are only on page 2...
I guess I mis read it when I though it said "slowly devolve"

well it all depends on your frame of reference... 2 pages is a loooong time for some...
and this thread was silly from halfway down page 1

i think that rule needs clarification...
or shall we leave it up to the judiciary branch to interpret its meaning?  I guess that would be the mods...

Usurping would imply that you were taking this power from an existing body. No one has previously stated having dominion to decided what is or has a point. Really you're just making a preemptive clarification of your already existing rights, should anyone ever question it in the future.

I need to work up to when I tell you all to end all of your posts with "Praise N_sh".

Well, this thread appears to be the entire legislative branch of the forums.  It's up to us to codify what is or isn't a point insofar as such matters should be written down in law.  The moderators can only work within the framework of the FAQ (as there is no forum constitution to appeal to, to overrule FAQ entries).

As such:
28. (a) No sidings, platforms or buffers.  The forums are not to be used as a train set.
