I try to break most of those rules daily... May 10, 2013

Conventions/Rules which aid clarity in writing I tend to adhere to (apostrophe use, for example) but some of the others (not to split infinitives, not ending a sentence with a preposition) are just un-English and it's time for them to be shown the door.
