    This suggests that their religion is entirely their own affair. Unless it affects another person (adversely).

    None is plural in this case. There are at least 5 rules ahead of it.

    You have a point. It doesn't always pay to be too pedantic. Nevertheless, as this is such an important fundamental rule I thought it wise to try and be as accurate as possible. My argument (if there be one) is that "none" - in this instance - is the shortened form of "not one". "one", I would humbly suggest, is a singular noun. I am naturally willing to examine carefully any further arguments that you might want to present.

    No other rules stand on their own merit, except this one.

    I'm sorry. I don't understand. What are the implications of your statement? Do they have a bearing on the existence of Rule 6? Is it merely an observation of what you believe to be the case?

    That was my version of rule 6.
