    I was just re-reading the forum rules and I have to say I agree with them for the most part however the list stops at 9... maybe there should be a #10... nine just seems I don't know a bit lacking. I mean there's the 10 commandments ummm oh yeah on a scale of 1-10. Its never just nine. Maybe there could be some arbitrary rule like thou shalt worship the one true pipe for it is a jealous pipe, or thou shalt have no other pipes before me... any ideas for rule # 10?

    Edit: Capitalized the title... Rule #9, L.

    The interesting thing is that when this site started 4 years ago, we had zero rules ... but we had zero traffic too.

    As the site grew, the need for rules, and additional rules came about.

    Rule #9 is less than a year old.

    Something tells me that there will eventually be a rule #10. We just don't know what it will be until we need it.

    I think that with the anonymity of the internet, it's necessary to ensure that people treat others with respect and consideration, but my opinion is that there's only one rule necessary: Be polite and considerate to others. Follow that rule, and all others are redundant.

    Same with life in general, we just need one law on the books in the US.

    Do No Harm. Don't cause harm or do injustice to others. But of course that would be too simple, and work too well, and we'd suddenly have a terrible glut of attorneys and judges out of work and on unemployment...well, I could probably live with that scenario.
