I was just sort of joking hypothetically when I suggested creating my own site with rules, but the more responses I read to this story, the more I realize there are people out there like me (and you!) who actually want this. You’re probably right, though, that it ultimately wouldn’t change anything. Still, I’m going to give it some thought . . . Thanks so much for reading and commenting!
