Can anyone make one up or post one? Not "The Rules of the Internet", which is a different website and set of "rules" all together. No, I want laws that reflect the Internet and the people using it.

I'll start off:

Poe's Law is a law that states that "Without a clear demonstration of humour, it is very difficult to determine if an anonymous user is a genuine extremist, or a parody account (troll) who seeks to damage his claimed position."

Imabench, for example, is not an example of Poe's Law. However, many evolution deniers fit Poe's Law.

Anymore?

The Ten Basic Fundamental Laws of the Internet

1. Godwin's Law: As a Usenet discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1
2. Poe's Law: Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humour, it is impossible to create a parody of fundamentalism that someone won't mistake for the real thing
3. Rule#34: If it exists, there is porn of it." See also Rule 35: "If no such porn exists, it will be made
4. Skitt's Law: any post correcting an error in another post will contain at least one error itself" or "the likelihood of an error in a post is directly proportional to the embarrassment it will cause the poster
5. Scopie's Law: In any discussion involving science or medicine, citing Whale.to as a credible source loses the argument immediately, and gets you laughed out of the room
6. Danth's Law (AKA Parker's Law): If you have to insist that you've won an internet argument, you've probably lost badly
7. Pommer's Law: A person's mind can be changed by reading information on the internet. The nature of this change will be from having no opinion to having a wrong opinion
8. DeMyer's Law: Anyone who posts an argument on the internet which is largely quotations can be very safely ignored, and is deemed to have lost the argument before it has begun
9. Cohen's Law: Whoever resorts to the argument that "whoever resorts to the argument that... "has automatically lost the debate" has automatically lost the debate
10. The Law of Exclamation: The more exclamation points used in an email (or other posting), the more likely it is a complete lie. This is also true for excessive capital letters

I think one has been forgotten:

Hehe. To be fair, you did crop the original image (which makes it less obvious).

Actually someone else cropped it. It's like that as a result in the google images search for "Leela Doctor Who." You give me too much credit :P
