    Rule 5: If you disagree with anything Uber posts, see Rule 3.


    *Sonuvazag: You forgot to number your rules. See Rule 6.

    Rule 1 just became Rule 7

    Rule 1: Anything goes in the Foo.
    Because this rule obviously doesn't count for anything.

    Rule 7: As rules are added, Rule 1 will become the last rule and is now rule 8.

    Uber still may be the only poster yet to receive negative rep in the Foo.

    Default 18. No lollipops in Spokane

    I. A. ii. sec.7393 "The sonuvazag rule:"

    Rules can be classified as numbers, letters, or symbols. Rules, however, should be known by popular name as they are more commonly referred by both the media and common parlance.

    The sonuvazag rule states no stipulations to be placed on aforementioned rule. Sonuvazag likes the sonuvazag rule and gives sonuvazag five stars.
