Two new laws this evening:
1. O'Brien's Law: Anyone who makes grammatical or spelling mistakes in a particular thread loses all rights to correct others' grammar within that same thread.
Corollary: Should the violator correct faulty grammar with yet more faulty grammar, he shall be smacked with a dead fish. Should he "correct" faultless grammar with faulty grammar, he shall be used as target practise for the French castle guardsmen in Holy Grail.
Corollary 2: Should the correct-ee dig up examples of the grammar Nazi's bad grammar from other threads, he is wanking as hard as the original perpetrator and shall be mocked accordingly.
(Named after a snotty junior high English teacher whose grammar was awful but who insisted she was right, and persisted in "fixing" sentences that were actually correct.)
2. Faye's Law: Personal preferences in matters such as fandom, pairing, genre, etc. shall not be used to judge a fic's literary merit.
