The Corner

Directive From The Ombudsman

In the hope of setting up a satisfactory scale of punishments for

transgressors, I have been reading up on the practice of Outlawry, as

understood by the medieval Icelanders. There is a brief account here.

Note especially the following:

“If a man calls a man ragr or stro?inn or sor?inn. And they shall be

punished as fully slanderous words, and a man is given the right to kill for

these words.”

Since, obviously, we do not want any bloodshed on The Corner, I hereby

absolutely prohibit all Cornerites from referring to anyone as ragr or

stro?inn or sor?inn.
