Code of Conduct for Cinema

These days I find myself going to the cinema less and less. The main reason (apart from cost!) is not the number of films I want to see but having paid my money the number of irritating things around me that spoil it.
Seems I'm not alone. Simon Mayo and Mark Kermode (national UK radio DJ and film critic accordingly) have created a list of annoyances and turned them into a Code of Conduct:
I think Kermode's great anyway (his 20 minute rant on the Pirates of the Caribbean will forever be a source of delight for me!): this confirms it. The scary thing is when you look at the list and think: how ever was some of this ever seen as acceptable in the first place?!
