>Maybe we should hold a meeting about the 4th rule.

before you do, please re-read, and consider, rule 5.
these two rules evolved from playing the game.

we aren't all sitting around an actual table here.

I wasn't really serious about this, -ron o rule. (I had in mind a meeting in Iceland, an old Allthing.) \:\) But I did take a look at the fifth rule. Sabotage? Wow! (wasn't the fifth rule a line in a movie with Arnold Schwarznegger and Danny de Vito?) Or was it the third rule? In the lame fun movie "Twins"?

The obvious way to handle rule 4 submissions is for the hogmaster merely to say that the proffered definition was too close to one already submitted, without saying whether it is the correct definition or one of the submitted false definitions.

Which is exactly what happened - I'm not complaining about the process. I'm happy to sit this one out.

I was more answering BranShea's comment that it seemed like excessive punishment for getting too close to the real thing.

I think there is quite some distance between 'a bit of a' and 'excessive'.
