Before we get to the rules themselves. Let's start with some basic history. Oppo is a community which sprung up from the need for an offtopic area from Jalopnik. It has grown into its own over the years and is the largest, most populated, quickest moving community on Kinja. Oppo is made up of over 2700 authors from…
