Guidelines

It has been suggested that there should be some guidelines for posting on this Blog. So I began thinking of some. Of course, putting either guidelines or restrictions on a stupid blog would be stupid. On the other hand, wouldn’t that in itself be a reason to put guidelines or restrictions on a stupid blog? Would posters be too stupid to read the guidelines anyway? And if they could read them, would they understand? Would they assume that the poster of the guidelines was merely being stupid and, so, ignore the guidelines altogether? If I posted guidelines, should I include a disclaimer that instructs posters to ignore them, with the logic that they will think I am being stupid and do the opposite? Is it even possible to use reverse psychology on a stupid person? Does it reverse the reverse psychology, thereby causing the stupid person to do the opposite of the opposite? Am I getting totally lost in this post? Yes.

The laws of logic don't apply to Stupid People. Therefore, you can be as illogical as you wish and you will be behaving perfectly correctly.

I maintain that guidelines should be enforced. For one thing, it's fun to see stupid people twisting in the wind--especially wind that they have just broken. When stupid people break rules and the Emperors of Stupid call them on it, they are forced to admit the Emperors' superiority. It is incumbent upon Emperors to underscore their superiority at every opportunity.

Good point. Although the thought of stupid people twisting in wind they have just broken is a little creepy.

Okay, then we need some guidelines, eh? Hmmm. This could be biggest challenge I've faced since that whole Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria thing. I'll have to think about it. Perhaps FooDaddy will come up with something.

really stupid people ARE creepy, Stupe! They can't help themselves and we shouldn't try. We should laugh at them.
