The protagonist of Robert Sheckley’s great story “Protection” is told that he is safe as long as he doesn’t lesnerize, but is given no hints as to what he must be careful to not to do. I always felt like that—at any moment likely to get caught violating the Rule Everyone Knows But Me—until I found fandom, where that abnormality is practically the norm. And maybe there are no hidden rules
