If you for some crazy reason wish to comment upon this blog, I must enquire that you follow four rules concerning proper social etiquette within the comments. These rules are of course the rules of a true knight from the lost age of chivalry. (Note: The term “knight” here does not refer only to men; anyone can follow the rules of chivalry. Knights [at least the cool, sword-wielding, dragon-slaying kind] also don’t exist anymore, so these days the term refers to no one.)
Rule I: Humility
A true knight never announces they are a knight, for a true knight needs but remain virtuous for others to know what they are. Don’t pretend you’re better than everyone, and even if you are better than everyone, have pity on us and say something encouraging.
Rule II: Generosity
It is the mission of each true knight, their duty—nay—their privilege—to add a measure of grace to the world by helping those who cannot help themselves. If you have any helpful suggestions to improve this blog, please tell me. I might try to care.
Rule III: Justice
A knight fights for those who deserve equality and rights, without question or pause. Don’t say anything negative and untrue to a group of people that doesn’t deserve it.
Rule IV: Discipline
A knight must remain calm and composed in the face of danger, or even when someone disagrees with them on the internet about something trivial. Please refrain from using profanity on this blog, and don’t be unnecessarily aggressive.
