  • Section 5 - the What's Not Held rules
    [ Many if not all of the “what’s not held” and “what you haven’t got” rules will automatically try to implicitly take, so AI doesn’t actually need to handle them, unless marketing asks how many unique situations the AI covers. Some of these rules, despite the wording of their names, fall into the “already” and/or “but first” categories. Nevertheless, the language in many of their names, much like the marketing department, emphasizes how poor you are. ]
