Design Caricaturing design

"The problem is that every rule related to, or governing, design is ultimately ridiculous," says Ridiculousdesignrules.com.

Hmm, if all design rules are ridiculous, doesn't it mean that design itself is ultimately ridiculous? And designers a bunch of nihilistic caricatures?

In my view, rules are to be obeyed, dismissed, broken or improved, but never ridiculed. Laughing at all design rules, dictums and mantras can only splinter an already disjointed professional ethos.

Thanks, Adrian.

dear kit,
my father he is now 76 years old and retired was graphic designer, and still I remember a rule about "m" legs distance standard and the confusion with other letters generated when it wasn't respected.
