As someone who hasn't read a lot of Harry Potter, can any of you please explain the Voldemort reference that keeps popping up with regards to the rumored High Elf strike first rule? Thanks.

"He Who Shall Not Be Named" is Voldemort's title (or something similar), in the same way nobody wants to talk about the first strike rule, because as soon as someone does the thread derails completely.

On an only mildly related note, i would just like to point out that Teclis could kill everyone in Hogwarts with a single Comet of Cassandora.

This has been another friendly reminder brought to you by the Harry Potter Magic is for Sissies Coalition.

The first strike rule is cheesy, only power gamers would use HE now.

the reason is, everyone is so sick of hearing about the he strike first rule, because it dominated all the rumour forums to the exclusion of all else. He who shall not be named is because his name is feared. This is a parallel joke where everyone fears it being mentioned because then the thread will be chosked by whinging/justifications for the rule. Hence, it cannot be named.

...The voldemort rule just applied in the thread asking questions about why its called the voldemort rule, and if we had all used the Voldemort rule, the above post of supreme redundancy would have been avoided.

That is some zen sh** Warseer.

yeah, case and point right there.

and, a single outrider regiment could kill every wizard at hogwarts.
