Hello. Please excuse my possibly stupid question.

I am going to quote the rules:

Don't "toe the line". You know what you're doing, we know what you're doing. So just don't.

What I learned:

"Toe The Line" means to conform to the rules

Umm...Google...Define "toe the line"

accept the authority, principles, or policies of a particular group, especially under pressure.

I thought I was going crazy when I saw this...And the definition shows this. And I asked about 4 other people. So my question...Um....The rules literally say "don't follow the rules" don't they?...Can someone please help me understand where I am misunderstanding this? I am honestly confused on this.

In this case, "toe the line" means to push the boundaries of the rules. It means testing the limits to see what you can get away with in a negative way. Basically the equivalent of when you stick your finger a millimeter away from your sibling's face and chant, "I'm not touching you, I'm not touching you" lmao. Just generally not acceptable behavior.

They mean don't dance the line between following and breaking the rules. Just put a nice good buffer between you and the line - follow the rules, ask questions if you have any, and you're golden :D We're a very forgiving and welcoming community, but we don't want to encourage negative/trolling behavior.
