how about these;


1) Give it to Ouch and let him run with it.

2) Climbers under 30 should be seen but only heard if they are funny.

3) No nudity, only violence.

4) All potentially flammable items MUST be set ablaze.

5) Nobody is ever the best at anything (except for John Gill).

6) Don't bite the taco if you can't handle the picante.

7) Lois is not the moderator.

8) You have to do it free. No standing on pins. No sling belays.

9) Largo rules.

10) There ARE no rules.

how about...

10) There are no rules, and expect people to scream when you break them.

Too haphazard.

If people make lists and number them we could actually come up with a consensus.

There's really only one:

Thou shalt have no other gods before ESS.

10. Thou shalt not inquire about “secret” or “stealth” bivys or campspots in Yosemite National Park.

9. "Thou shalt not omit #9, worm."

8. Thou shalt not request beta on any route under 5.9

7. Thou shalt not request beta on any route less than 3 pitches in length

6. Thou shalt not discuss the ethics of bolting. It’s been done. To death.

5. Thou shalt not discuss bouldering or sport climbing as legitimate pursuits.

4. Thou shalt not inquire how to post pictures to the forum.

3. Thou shalt not inquire if the crux of a particular climb can be french-freed.

2. Thou shalt not inquire as to “what is a good all-day climbing shoe”

1. Thou shalt not request a separate “off topic” forum.







edit:
0. Thou shalt learn to count to 10 before posting a list of 10 commandments.

Aw to hell with lists.

We'll just reach a consensus the way we always do... NOT.

I think andanother nailed it but I would delete #9, bump everything up, and put in Stitch's correctly stated the first rule is you dont talk about the fight club.

Which also works good in real life. After getting knocked out once and having a good shiner and stitches above the eye, I never told anyone (except the wife) and always replied..."the first rule of the fight club is you dont talk about the fight club." Worked out very well.

Aloha All, Have a kickass weekend!
