A place with less rules, but with some more rules?

Politics may not interest you and those discussions tend to lead nowhere, but at least they are contained in a place where you can easily ignore them. Simply taking away the place for these things and proclaiming how strictly you want to enforce the rules from now on simply leads to having these things all over the place in sometimes funny or more often strange ways to wiggle around those rules. Elephants and sunshines, anyone?

And, last, this kind of situation draws one of the lowest forms of life to the scene: The lawyer. On both sides of the argument you will suddently have lots of people arguing over why or why not someone has broken the rules in each particular case. Is that what you want to have here?
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
