Spinoff of COTH Weirdness: unwritten rules of COTH
The hilarious weird quotes thread made me think, there are some unwritten rules which can lead to pretty funny situations, or the decline and death-by-mod of threads, depending:
Unwritten Rule #1: Don't ever think you can get away with posting something controversial that contradicts something you posted last year - people will look you up and quote you!
UR #1a: Don't think you can get away with having a sneaky alter to cover up a weird situation: people will look it up and figure you out!
UR #2: Don't ask for advice and then critique the advice you get; even if you don't like it, just nod and smile and file it away!
UR #3: Don't ever think you can post a desperate plea for vet advice here instead of calling the actual vet. Any emergency post should begin "I already called the vet, but meanwhile I'd like some jingles/advice/a shoulder to cry on."
Any others??? :)
