Though the text of this article can say something more-or-less reasonable, the real question is whether "ignore all rules" is a healthy catch-phrase for defining a Wikipedian's mindset. When compared with inspiring guidance like be bold and assume good faith, it should be clear that ignore all rules does not meet the bar for a mantra to be used in this community.

melodychild77 has the answers about the dangers of computer chairs from Freecycle!

Why yes, it's a concern. I mean, when you're a single mother of 28 children who need Xbox 360s and Ipods, and you're working on your doctoral disseration but suddenly you need a new laptop, and your mother with one leg and your brother's uncle's sister's inbred daughter with no arms are calling for new clothes, you might fall out of your chair trying to post as quickly as you can on Freecycle.

Much truth in jest?

I've begun to resent one of my christmas presents. It's a magnet that says "I know I'm in my own world, but it's okay. They know me here.". It's true enough, but is it right for a mother to say that about her daughter? This is worse than that shirt "I didn't say it was your fault, I said I'm going to BLAME you" she bought me. I think she knows me too well.
