In case this went over people's heads, I'm referring to the  
proposition that states:

If we're going to have rules, shouldn't we practice them?

On the other hand, I go out of my way (in my own writing) to disregard  
some possibly well-established norms such as this. (Others are leaving  
no space on the sides of an em-dash or putting a closing quotation  
mark outside of the sentence period - unless the quote itself is a  
full sentence.)
