Right. You can't start a new thread inside a thread. (Well you could, but the universe as we know it would likely split in two.) You are reading this...therefore you are inside a thread.

You need to go "up" one level to where the various threads are listed under the various forum categories.

can we add another? how about drunken posts have to state a level of drunkeness.
also, if posting while drunk, immediately email yourself the link to your post, you'll probably forget you did it anyway...

Do you have any other observations to make about any of the other rules? I think he messed up a few others too. You should list all the mistakes. In crayon please.

I think writing the original post takes some real skill. To break each rule in the sentence that defines it is impressive.

Of course what is funny is the number of people not recognizing that fact. I will be the optimist and believe that they missed the point of the post because they just skimmed the post, not because they do not know grammar.

5. Avoid cliches like the plague. (They're old hat)
6. Also, always avoid annoying alliteration.
7. Be more or less specific.
8. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are (usually) unnecessary.
9. Also too, never, ever use repetitive redundancies.
10. No sentence fragments.
11. Contractions aren't necessary and shouldn't be used.
12. Foreign words and phrases are not apropos.
13. Do not be redundant; do not use more words than necessary; it's highly superfluous.
14. One should NEVER generalize.
15. Comparisons are as bad as cliches.
16. Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc.
17. One-word sentences? Eliminate.
18. Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake.
19. The passive voice is to be ignored.
20. Eliminate commas, that are, not necessary. Parenthetical words however should be enclosed in commas.
21. Never use a big word when a diminutive one would suffice.
22. Use words correctly, irregardless of how others use them.
23. Understatement is always the absolute best way to put forth earth-shaking ideas.
24. Eliminate quotations. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "Ihate quotations. Tell me what you know."
25. If you've heard it once, you've heard it a thousand times: Resist hyperbole; not one writer in a million can use it correctly.
26. Puns are for children, not groan readers.
27. Go around the barn at high noon to avoid colloquialisms.
28. Even IF a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed.
29. Who needs rhetorical questions?
30. Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.
31. Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.
It's funny because it's true. You got skills, bro!
