I've found a number of answers which are essentially "Obey rule 25", "Obey rule 10", etc. These rules link to the Velominati "The Rules" page.
The rules consist of a lengthy list of tongue-in-cheek lines which are mostly superficial in nature and of very little value or substance. Of the 85 rules, fewer than a handful have any value other than humor.
Should answers which simply cite a given rule be downvoted, and citations of these rules generally discouraged? I see them as humorous, but without value for a site intended to give values of substance to legitimate questions. I'd personally prefer these types of answers be included as comments; they could be mentioned in substantial answers--but answers citing these alone should be discouraged.
