i think the 'minimum 70 words' rule is to keep all the philosophical , thought provoking statements at bay.

stuff like -

LOL that's funny.


and -

roflmao man.

also-

banned. ( at least we won't get just that in a post. will have 69 words dragging behind)

man, the last one really gets you. especially when it comes from the most loving and caring of mods on ST.

i earned myself a ban following this rule actually. funny eh?
