Rule Named For The Violator? Badly Behaving Rule Namer?

Eesh, all these are really long.

...Oh, and crowners swapped. ^^;

Waiting on a TRS slot? Finishing off one of these cleaning efforts will usually open one up.

Is The Violator Rule in any way ambiguous? If not, we can make it the name and use the laconicoid names as redirects.

My only problem with The Violator Rule is that the rule namer is not technically a violator, since the rule didn't exist when he or she displayed the behavior that necessitated the rule.

But that's a really minor nitpick.

Rule Named After Violator is only four words; doesn't seem that much longer than a three word name, and conciseness is our second criteria, which should be trumped by clarity, which The Violator Rule lacks. The latter could be a rule about what happens to people who violate the other rules, or all sorts of things. There's nothing in there to suggest that this is about the name of a rule. I think one (count it, one) extra word is worth the extra clarity.

eta: Named The Rule After Him is still the worst choice, though, IMO, as that could be any person who has had a rule named after them. There's nothing in there to suggest that breaking the rule was involved in naming it.

"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.

I like The Violator Rule.

Not perfect, but it works.

...if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you for it.

Agreed; calling it in favor of Rule-Breaker Rule-Namer. Make it so.

Rename done. Wicks and page are moved and Renamed Tropes and the FAQ thread are finished.

Anything else?
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.

Alternative Titles: Skippy Rules

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
At issue:
