    I don't think it's a matter of a lack of free will or "religious" clinging to rules.

    But since you ask for an explanation, Meteor Blades has a thankless task that takes an incredible amount of time and effort.  I admire him for the effort and for his even-handedness.  As you know, he just posted a big diary clarifying some of the basic rules.  One is that if you write a GBCW, you need to take it seriously, because you'll be banned.  He gave lots of reasons.

    Thus, when you write a diary with GBCW in the title and also in the tags, it forces people, including Meteor Blades, to take time on your diary to see how it comports with the new rule.

      question.  "Rules, Moderation, Civility".  Wow.  I am so sorry.  I really should have known, even without seeing this.  Cold chill ...  I wonder if I will make it.  Ignorance is no excuse.

      And, by the way, that is a great rule.  I actually did start with GBCSN but thought it was too obtuse.  Steelers Nation.
