Blogging Rules

I need a little help here. I’m trying to come up with a list of rules for blogging. So far I have three four five six seven eight nine:

1. It would be irresponsible not to speculate.

2. Jumping to conclusions is good exercise.

3. Anyone who disagrees with me is a troll.

4. It’s different when I do it.

5. If you repeat it enough times, it’s true.

6. This is the blogosphere, not a hothouse for delicate flowers.

7. If you argue with a troll, the troll wins.

8. Profanity and obscure pop culture references are mandatory.

9. Only noobs ask “what does (insert acronym/internet slang here) mean?”

Any ideas?

This is an open thread

  1. Listen, you little wiseacre: I’m smart; you’re dumb; I’m big, you’re little; I’m right, you’re wrong, and there’s nothing you can do about it.

    -Roald Dahl (Matilda)

  2. It’s not like you to get all existential on us. I’m going to take a little break as per Dandy Tiger’s last suggestion, though inebriants are not close by. Thanks to RD and all the awesome frontpagers for running the best most open minded liberal poli blog on the web!!

  3. How about:

    5. When I say you are wrong, don’t give me any lip.

  4. 6. When I disagree with my previous statements, I have gained wisdom on the subject.

  5. The blog owner owns the blog and can do whatever the f— they want

  6. Thank god there is a post up without that horrible picture.

  7. OK, rules. Let’s see. Oh god, forget rules, I just noticed I got some tax related mail today. Not taxes.

  8. Another rule: I don’t snore, only you snore. Oh wait, blog rules. Never mind.

  9. 8. Never blog when jetlagged.

  10. I thought you meant ‘Blogging Rules!’ like…

    ‘Football Rules!’ or ‘Chicks Rule!’ or ‘MyIQ Rules!’ …

    ‘Mob Rules!’… ooops.

  11. 10. Unless written by the Krug Man, the poster is a moron.
    11. Don’t blog at the right wingers unless you’re suicidal.
    12. Full moon is good for blogging (and sex).
    13. empty unless you’re Jewish and blogging not on a Sabbath.
    14. If a commenter disagrees, moron is the adjective preferable in response (head up the ass will do too).
    15. Against brevity, multiple comments highly advised, complex sentence rather than simple ones, repetition is a sign of strong will, compromise is left for Obama

  12. If you can’t convince the poster or other commenters with your idea, just keep repeating it. 🙂

  13. # my conspiracy theory is real, yours is just stoopid.

  14. Shouldn’t Rule Six be: There is NO… Rule Six. 😀

  15. Rule 34?

  16. 10. This above all: to thine own self be true
