Does high entropy matter? Yes, the entropy rule forbids you to post words of
more than one syllable. On the other hand, you went ahead and did it anyway.
Shows what the rules are good for.

It's another case of Nomic rules trying to regulate real life - the rules
can accept input from the real world, but they cannot directly force things
to happen in the real world.

Don't worry about Entropy restrictions. They're not really there.

There is no Restriction.
