Ignore all rules

Recently, I noticed that one of Wikipedia’s policies is rather interesting: Ignore All Rules.

If a rule prevents you from improving or maintaining Wikipedia, ignore it.

Seems like a rather interesting way to encapsulate exceptions and common sense as part of an official policy, and well as introducing a touch of rambunctious energy and freedom into what could otherwise become a stodgy bureaucracy.

I like it.
