172. Actually the only real "unwritten rule" I could think of was also about teachers.

"Teaching is the ONLY profession that one must have actually performed in order to have an opinion on it."

Go on to almost any thread related to teachers and someone will inevitably look to shut down criticism with "what grade/what subject/where do you teach?" Followed by some dismissive statement about how the person doesn't understand how things work if they haven't actually taught.

sell out...but, even before in the past few years.

I'm not a fan of marijuana legalization, but, I've never spoken out about it here on DU and I do feel that Christians here on DU ...particularly Southern Christians get TRASHED.

But, I'm way to the Left of most of DU...so go figure...

And a bonus:
If you point out that religion might be the very reason why a certain part of the world has been, is, and will always be an unsafe shithole, then you need to go play with the atheists.

magazine-fed direct gas impingement rotating-bolt semiautomatic rifle... and how the piston-driven rotating-bolt semiautomatic rifle is indeed superior. You will get bonus credibility for describing gas operated rotating bolt handguns and you absolutely need to know why stainless steel magazine springs with GI followers are inferior to chrome-silicone springs with gen 3 magpul followers. We haven't even touched on why you cant meaningfully weigh in on any AWB because of silly nomenclature idiosyncrasies like assault rifle versus assault weapon versus sporting rifle. Shit, you'd batter call up Sallie Mae and take out a loan cause you're about schooled! And you'd better learn right quick that a 30 round magazine is absolutely needed for an assault rifle but you want to use one in a Glock Pistol?!? That shit will jam up and be worthless immediately... 30 round mags good in powerful rifles but bad in pistols so you better recognize, homie! And you think you can describe the difference between a thumbhole stock versus a pistol grip and how each contributes to sparying fire from the HIP?? HA, keep dreamin'!!

Don't even think about talking shaved-versus unshaven bayonet lugs until you've mastered the shoulder-thing-that-goes-up or the collapsible stock. And discussion of cop-killer expanding bullets?!? well, that's just right out!
