Rob, please introduce yourself before questioning our long established rules.
I've tidied things up a bit and number 7 is now number 6 just to cause confusion.
Please, please, please re-familiarise yourself
you didn't say ....Reminds of when we used to play Simple Simon as kids - no rule or instruction was valid unless preceeded by Simple Simon says
yep, agreed. No 7 is essential in any forum to avoid arguments.
One thing that is not mentioned is a rule stating the equivalent of "play nice" ie respect each other, don't be abusive, don't mention the war etc etc. I kind of like that since it implies that that sort of carry on doesn't go on here hence no need to legislate for it.
One thing I would do is to take out all the please's.
