    "this is all exactly why rule #1 here is to address the comment, not the commenter."
     

    Does your comment describe  an equal derivative/equivalence of the 'no insults' and 'DBAD' rules, or is it intended as a behavioral observational corollary or consequence of these two rules, or does a literal DK site rule exist that says that?

      it's kind of hard to be a dick towards an idea/thought/some words, no?

      it's kinda like DBAD is a subset of rule #1 (my wording, not the site's).  

      i dunno where it's been stated explicitly, but i know it has.  there is this from hunter, though:

        and it's definitely still an incredibly cogent description of the whole phenomenon.

        At least half the future I've been expecting hasn't gotten here yet. Sigh.... (Yes, there's gender bias in my name; no, I wasn't thinking about it when I signed up. My apologies.)
