And, of course, if the majority of players are on board with unofficial/'house' rulings, those who ask for clarification or evidence of such are likely to be perceived as the 'bad guys', for not simply going along with them, and they will be seen and treated as the ones who are playing the game(s) incorrectly....
out of curiosity which ruling is so "highly troubling" to you that you need a signed affidavit to confirm. You do realize that there are the people that designed this game also have accounts on this "community of house rules".

I'm sorry that an archived bunch of text of a out of print game on a "fan site" is so unsettling for you.

I'm going to assume here that perhaps this is either a misunderstanding or a language issue and say this in a different way than the others so that maybe I can help you here.

These FAQ's listed here as OFFICIAL were copied from the OFFICIALS and linked here. So wherever it is you are playing in these super specific competitive arenas, if they are not using these rules... they are the ones playing with 'generally accepted' 'house rules'
