Hi, guest person

View rule 314

314/2: On Speling - Obsolete

All players are strongly urged to include at least one spelling (or punctuation) mistake in every proposal.

If a proposal does not contain such a mistake, any other player may post a message to the mailing list accusing the proposer of being "A Pedant". The proposer may then reply to the list, pointing out what the mistake in his or her proposal was, or admitting that there was none.

If the proposer does not reply, or admits there was no mistake, then the proposer is from then on A Pedant according to the game's rules. Otherwise the accuser is from then on officially A Pedant according to the game's rules.

Mistakes shall be defined as a deviation from the rules of Standard English, with both correct American and Standard spellings deemed not to be mistakes.

(Repealed by proposal 330)
