The last item might be setting the bar discouragingly high though:

"Use common sense all the time."

It is sort of paramount to saying, "alright, everyone out of the pool!"

Maybe a bug report:  replace it with "Don't top your posts."

I note the item admonishing *never* to post in html. The abundance of
confusing html quotes, which I refuse to sort through, have been discussed here.
