On a lighter note: the top ten Internet rules and laws

  1. Godwin’s Law – Comparing something to Hitler or the Nazis is inevitable in any online discussion.
  2. Poe’s Law – Without a blatant display of humour, it is impossible to make a parody of fundamentalism that someone won’t take as real.
  3. Rule 34 – If it exists there IS porn of it.
  4. Skitt’s Law – Any post correcting an error in another post will contain at least one error itself. Also the likelihood of an error in a post is directly proportional to the embarrassment it will cause the poster.
  5. Cohen’s Law – Whoever resorts to the argument “whoever resorts to the argument that… has automatically lost the debate” has automatically lost the debate.
  6. Pommer’s Law – A person’s mind can be changed by reading information on the internet. The nature of this change will be: From having no opinion to having a wrong opinion.
  7. The Law of Exclamation – The more exclamation points used in an email (or other posting), the more likely it is a complete lie. This is also true for excessive capital letters.
  8. Scopie’s Law – In any discussion involving science or medicine, citing as a credible source loses you the argument immediately …and gets you laughed out of the room.
  9. Danth’s Law – If you have to insist that you’ve won an Internet argument, you’ve probably lost badly.
  10. Grey’s Law – Any sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice

Did we hear ENCORE?

  1. Shaker’s Law – Those who announce their imminent departure from an Internet discussion forum almost never actually leave.
  2. Timecube Law – The longer the page, the more insane the author.
  3. Skarka’s Law – No matter how vile or indefensible something is, someone will post something positive or in defense of it.
