    "Rules" are almost always memes because to be useful for games or social situations the information must be known by a lot of people. (Exception being a rule you made for yourself and never let anyone know about.)>>

    Richard: A small quibble: even those silent rules can be memes because their existence can be inferred by others. Being good at this can make you a lot of money playing poker.

    Quibble quibble: if you can infer the existence of someone's rule, then there must be some kind of physical expression of it. Hence, it is not silent. That is why they call it a "tell".
