Yes, sometimes they are. But it doesn't mean they /have/ to be.
If everyone was still trying to "out-crass" each other, there'd be a lot more animated-GIFs around. And Lolcats.

True, but I don't MAKE the rules, I just play by them. Like a team does.
I don't want conservative; I want quality+consistency.
