Rule #11 - On Forgiveness

11a. Be generous with Forgiveness.

11b. Try to understand both sides

11c. If you cannot understand both sides, find your own side, poke it twice and giggle quietly. Poke it three times if you are not that ticklish.

11d. When all else fails, offer fresh baked cookies.


Rule #12 - On Irony and Its Applications in Ways That Are Not Easy To Understand, But Are Apparently Irresistible to "I".

12a. See Rule 3


Rule #13 - On Rules

13a. Rules are more like guidelines: as in "Rules are too stultifying for what we are trying to create here".

13b. The above is a rule, and should not be taken lightly as one might a guideline.

13c. When in doubt, ask. Specific doubt is better than general doubt.


Rule #14 - Of or Pertaining to Action Phrases

14a. posts intended to indicate a single action must be set between asterisks. (example: *posts new rule*)

14b. multiple actions must be separated into individual action sets, each with an associated asterisk pair. (example: *posts new rule* *comes up with examples*)

14c. actions must be phrased in present tense.

14d. failing to close an action phrase with the second asterisk will result in an interpretation of ongoing action in every subsequent post, regardless of content, until such time as the poster remembers to insert the errant asterisk.

Rule #15 - On Bullying

15.a. Bullying shall be defined as "choosing any individual for ongoing harassment, belittlement and/or abuse, whether or not they deserve it."

15b. Gentle teasing is not bullying. However, if an individual takes exception to what you consider gentle teasing, you must desist, make polite apologies, and feel very silly and embarrassed for a day or two or until your unintended victim tells you you’re off the hook, whichever takes longer.

15c. If you don’t like someone for any reason – say, they don’t speak English too well, you suspect they have Republican tendencies, or they just make you feel icky - you must try putting them on ignore.

15c.1. If you cannot resist peeking at the ignored member's posts once you have put them on ignore, zefrank.com/bulletin will not be held accountable for any anger, disgust, revulsion, nausea, headaches, cramps (including butt puckering), homicidal impulses, psychotic breaks, and other negative reactions you may experience.

Rule #20 - On Taking Responsibility For Your Words And Actions

20a. If you are being a jerk and you know it, please just apologize.
20ai. There is no need to justify your actions, in fact, you can't. If you did something wrong, own up to it. Take responsibility & say 'I was wrong and I'm sorry'. Explaining bad behavior away with excuses just makes it seem like you really don't regret your actions.
20b If you are getting messages from several people (let's say 8 or more) that you are being a jerk, assume that you are and see rule 20a. Jerk.

2. You must post by subjecting your laptop to the wireless network at the place you are staying. You will lose passwords to all your bank accounts, brokerage services, personal message boards, and dead-head spam computers you currently can access.
3. Rebuilding your life afterward may require creating a new identity or stealing someone else's. If this happens, do NOT create a bulletin.ZeFrank.com™ StrictlyCommercialShadowPuppet® unless they have also exploited your original bulletin.ZeFrank.com™ StrictlyCommercialUserAccount®
