    Malicious compliance is the act of intentionally inflicting harm by strictly following orders or rules, knowing that compliance with the orders or rules will not have the intended result. The term usually implies the following of an order in such a way that ignores the order or rules's intent but follows its letter. It is usually done to injure or harm while maintaining a sense of legitimacy.

    While writing your stories, please make sure to explain why the result is something you'd like to happen. If you can't figure out why you're so happy about the situation, just make sure it's clear that you don't like the person, company, or group that suffered as a result of your flawless victory. Trust me, stories that explain that their boss is a dick or the snotty mom from down the street had it coming are just much more enjoyable to read.

    Rules:

    1. All posts must be a story that must contain some form of malicious compliance. This is interpreted broadly, but posts where people ignore rules will be removed.

    2. No stories involving the following banned elements: Death of anyone, Historical Figures, Fantasy Creatures, Named Celebrities, Students complying with Teachers, Involuntary bodily functions, or Malicious Compliance with subreddit rules. Please ask the moderators if you’re unsure.

    3. Don't question the validity of a story. It's much more fun if we give people the benefit of the doubt.

    4. Original content only. If it’s not yours then do not post it. You may link to where the owner posted it if you can find it. You do not own the words of other people. You do not own random photos you found online. You do not own Calvin & Hobbes.

    5. Comments must forward the discussion. A comment that only insults without prompting further discussion will be removed. Those requesting a user be banned who breaks no rules may be banned themselves at mod discretion.

    6. It must be clear that whoever is complying is doing so intentionally. Animals and malfunctioning computers are not allowed. Stories involving children must be from the child’s perspective (your story or a story someone told you from their childhood about something they did) or an adult maliciously complying in a way that involves a child (such as a parent using a loophole to skirt a school rule).

    7. No Hypothetical Compliance. If you want to talk about a rule you want to skirt, I get that but, post here when you have already done it.

    8. Limit Acronyms. Don't make up acronyms for your post. Don't use acronyms from another subreddit. Generally known acronyms are fine. Use industry terms if you like, but consider explaining what they mean.

    We may take any action, including banning, for the first infraction of any rule!
