Do you have an honor code?

    Crossthreading off the BYU thread, where there has been (for the most part) an interesting discussion:

    Regardless of religion, do you have a certain honor code, loosely defined or otherwise, that you live by? I made light of the fact that the BYU code has nine bullet points, at least seven of which I am almost always in violation. The exceptions are being honest and living within the law.

    Do you live by a code?

    Yes. Most definitely. The only difference is I don't expect anyone else to live by it.

    Nothing wrong with honor codes for universities, the military, etc. There have to be some standards, right?

    I'd say no cheering in the press box, but apparently that means I can't cover NASCAR properly.

    You just snitched on your honor code.

    For the people who are adamant about not expecting anyone to live by your code, what about kids? If you have children, wouldn't you teach them things you deem honorable?

    You stick with that, everything else is cream cheese.
