Rule #1: Regarding the Use of All-Caps.

1a. All-Caps shall be used to signify additional emphasis given to a word. The meaning of said word will remain the same, as will the volume at which the word is spoken if the sentence containing this word is spoken, as one might to a child who, not yet having the ability to read, requested that it be read to them at an hour appropriate to such things.

2a. The emphasis conferred by All Caps will be measured in the following way:

This erases any emphasis that each individual All Capped word might have carried, dropping the emphasis level of the entire sentence effectively to nil. Plus Dave Grohl gets laryngitis.

1bi. On the Paradox of a Sentence Written entirely in All Caps:

- although All Caps indicates emphasis, a full sentence written in All Caps shall be interpreted in the reverse as something akin to a whimper. the sound of said whimper shall resemble the gently creaking protest of a poorly maintained swing set set in motion by a light summer breeze.

Rule #1: Regarding the Use of All-Caps.

1a. All-Caps shall be used to signify additional emphasis given to a word. The meaning of said word will remain the same, as will the volume at which the word is spoken if the sentence containing this word is spoken, as one might to a child who, not yet having the ability to read, requested that it be read to them at an hour appropriate to such things.

1b. The emphasis conferred by All Caps will be measured in the following way:

- using that type of scary voice (but not actually singing) like dave grohl of the foo fighters at one of the intense bits in one of bigger hit songs e.g. "the monkey wrench"

- dividing Maximal Emphasis Possible By Any Sentence (MEPBAS) by the number of words in All-Caps, and giving to each its even share.

1bi. On the Paradox of a Sentence Written Entirely in All Caps:

- a Sentence Written Entirely in All Caps (SWEAC), since it divides the MEPBAS by the Maximum All Capped Words (MACaW) creates a ratio of 1:1. This erases any emphasis that each individual All Capped word might have carried, dropping the emphasis level of the entire sentence effectively to nil. Plus Dave Grohl gets laryngitis.

1bii. On the Proper Response to a Sentence Written Entirely in All Caps:
One should whisper in size 1 Italics.


Rule #2: On collation

2a. Always collate for the convenience of later posters.
2ai Posters breaking Rule #2 shall be subject to the following consequences:
- Offending posts will be winged, but not ducked.
- The poster will receive a single infraction which will count towards their total DMRS score (DMRS score not valid in Hawaii, Wisconsin, or Lower Elbonia. Actual value less than one cent).
- The poster will receive "The Look" from their own mother.

2b. On the preferred method of collating:
People should be collated by height, weight, gender, and foot size, in that order, and never by handedness or the Graeber Index of Sexual Attractiveness in 7th Grade.



Rule #3: On How "Real" One Should Sound When Posting, and Cases in Which One Should Edit an Existing Post to Comply With Rule#3.

from the French réel, from Latin realis, from res thing.

3a. When meaning to "be real", sounding real is both prudent and necessary.
3ai. "sounding real" does not refer to the actual transmission of soundwaves. speaking aloud while posting is not necessary in any case, and should be regarded as voluntary.
3b. "Get Real!" Derivative exclamation. The order of getting that which is real.
3c. "O rly?" - This phrase shall be used as an expression of doubt or uncertainty that the previous poster knows what the fvck said poster is talking about.

Rule # 4: On Lost Formatting

4a. If you find someone else's formatting, put it back where it belongs.
4b. If you lose your formatting, you shall be infarcted.
4bi. Formatting infarctions shall be inflicted exclusively in French: À la recherche du formatage perdu
4bii. The Easy Way Not To Lose Your Formatting shall be to Quote The Rules In Their Entirety from the previous poster, and remove the unneccesary quote formatting. This shall be the only formatting you may lose without being infarcted.
