The difficulty with "precise sets of rules", is that anything that someone
didn't manage to explicitly think up in advance is "fair game" as long as it
doesn't _precisely_ run afoul of one of those rules.

And when someone _does_ manage to find something which actually offends
everyone in the audience, but which wasn't envisioned beforehand, there's no
basis for complaint at all: it's not "against the rules".
