Repeal the rule “Trite”.

In the rule “Scoring”, remove “and the Trite at the time that the post is made” and the bullet point beginning “For each Private Criteria in the response that contains any of the nouns listed in the Trite”.

This rule doesn’t really seem to have taken off.

I agree that it hasn’t been used much yet, but it’s on my mind. I do wonder whether the Trite and the Guess mechanic are working the same lane, though.

I liked the Trite, but it’s true that it hasn’t had much use.

imperial in case the Observer would like it to stick around.

I lean towards removing the trite but I don’t think I have been involved for enough time to opine.
