Le lege de Cunningham affirma que "le melior maniera de obtener le responsa correcte in internet non es poner un question, ma es publicar le responsa erronee."
Le Lege de Cunningham pote esser considerate como le equivalente in internet del dicto francese "prêcher le faux pour savoir le vrai" (precar lo false pro saper lo ver). In "Duty Calls," xkcd se refere a un concepto similar.

Cunningham's Law: The best way to get the right answer on the Internet is not to ask a question, it's to post the wrong answer. N.b. named after Ward Cunningham, a colleague of mine at Tektronix. This was his advice to me in the early 1980s with reference to what was later dubbed USENET, but since generalized to the Web and the Internet as a whole. Ward is now famous as the inventor of the Wiki. Ironically, Wikipedia is now perhaps the most widely-known proof of Cunningham's Law.
