There is a natural tendency to bridle at rules that we did not help craft. Not all rules are unwarranted. A quick test is that if you would not want to clean up the mess then breaking the rule is a bad idea. If breaking a rule will cause a messy problem then MAYBE there is a good reason for the rule. If you still want to break the rules grab a plunger because if you clogged it, it is your responsibility and you own the problem!
