The highest form of defiance is self defiance; in other words, perfect obedience to eternal principles. Anything short of that leaves one without satisfaction, without a clear conscience, and is in fact a half-hearted effort at being defiant.

The highest form of defiance is ... perfect obedience to eternal principles.
And you post this three days late, as by the Eternal Principle that Type Battles end on Friday? ;-)

I believe the principle here is: He who posts to the type battle after Friday has too much time on his hands—and he who checks back after Friday—worse.

hmmm, do the type battles really end on friday? That wouldn't make sense...most people have more free time on the weekends.

I was wondering about that too; it says that on the battles overview page:

Each game kicks off on Monday with a new challenge, and closes at midnight PST on Friday.

Even I thought one week referred to 7 full days…

Because Typophile is not a "business hours only" kind of place, I think the rules will need to be revised and clarified. Thanks for pointing it out!

New battle coming sooooooooon.
