Proposal: BlogNomic, the game that accurately models the annoyance of Hugh Grant

Quorums 7-0. — Quirck

Add a new rule to the ruleset, titled Sharp Practices:

There exist a number of Sharp Practices that an Editor can perform. They are described in the subrules to this rule. Any time an Editor performs a Sharp Practice, they must increase their Skeletons In The Closet (tracked in the GNDT as ‘Skeletons’, defaulting to zero) by 1.

Add a new subrule to this rule, entitled Phone hacking:

Phone Hacking is a Sharp Practice that can be undertaken as a weekly action. When an Editor Hacks a Phone, they may Make a Wire Post as described in the rule entitled The Wire, containing a single Event, with a Subject of the Editor’s choosing and with a tone that must be Negative.

I think this proposal carried the implicit threat that sooner or later someone will try to get a Lord Leveson proposal passed.

Why create Skeletons?  We already have the existing Reputation statistics.

A paper can have a great reputation and plenty of skeletons in the closet. It’s all about when, or if, they come out.

I did a double take when I saw the title of this post in my Twitter feed. =P
