Guidelines

G1: We're not limited to programming. Asshole design goes beyond the computer screen. Some of our best posts have been from non-technical stuff.

G2: You can post positive things, too! Informational videos demonstrating malicious techniques, resources for combating assholedesign, etc. are all completely acceptable.

G3: Satire and Lampshade Hanging is acceptable if tagged appropriately. *Satire is ridicule of asshole design techniques, and should be tagged under the "Satire" flair. Lampshade Hanging is subversion of asshole design techniques and should be tagged under "Lampshading".

G4: Bots & novelty accounts are subject to arbitrary bans. Some users have issued concerns regarding certain bots and their use as a constructive part of Reddit. Some bots might be banned, others may be allowed to stay. This rule will be enforced on a case-by case basis.
