Since I am by nature a loose cannon, I am not the best person to ask to suggest rules, so will have to delegate this task to other, stabler Old Farts.

Well I dunno if I can be a member; I’m quite human a lot of the time but given all too common provocation I reckon I can out-grump you lot any time so I vote GOoOF.
