No brainer. Don't cheat.

Puzzled by the grammar: one thing you must never do is "don't cheat." Not sure this is quite what was intended.

True. All are double negatives. So we MUST do those dirty deeds!

Most of the items fit well under "don't cheat"

Cheating ruins the game.

Honestly I'd much rather have someone cheat a little bit than take forever to take their turn, considering all the possibilities.

For example if you had two game, one where the person was allowed to pre-measure and another where they were not. If I knew that the person would pre measure everything, movement, range of shooting from where the movement was and on and on vs. play the other game where I knew they would cheat by doing some pre-measuring, I'd much rather play the second game.

Rules lawyers drive me absolutely insane.

That moniker gets thrown around a lot. I have seen players with a legitimate point to make get labeled a "Rules Lawyer." I am often weary of the player who shouts rules lawyer every time his actions are called into question. Sometimes you need a good lawyer.
