Internet rules and laws: the top 10, from Godwin to Poe

Poe’s Law is a beloved old friend of mine, as is Godwin’s Law. Double points if you can mix the two. Funny enough, when I run in to Poe’s Law material, I automatically assume that anything that ridiculous must be parody until proven otherwise. This may not be the best position to take, since it means I tend to think people are more sane and have better senses of humor than is actually true. And this has led to some truly jaw-dropping moments of “BZUH?”

Also, I’d been unaware of Danth’s Law until now, but the example used to illustrate it (Lansky pwning Schlafly) still never fails to make me chortle with glee.
