Of course I have broken rules. So I flouted them. Look it up - flout - To show contempt for; scorn.

So please, flout is NOT "emotive and loaded language that misrepresents the views of others" nor is it "a low tactic and quite rude". It is a precise description.
Well YOU may have contempt and scorn for rules, but I don't. I respect the reasons why they exist. I simply don't believe (getting bored of saying this now!) that they need to be blindly adhered to on every occasion and in every circumstance. So to say that I "flout" rules, and thereby that have I have "scorn and contempt" for them is both rude and inaccurate. Please don't put words into my mouth and misrepresent my position.
