There are a lot of things people think are rules or perhaps even are called rules, but in reality, they are merely suggestions. You may think to yourself, "how can that be?" Especially when things such as "Request for Comments" (RFCs), "Best Common Operational Practices" (BCOPs), and "Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STDs), all spell out the rules
