Are these really the official rules?

Dear Sean,
Hi. I saw the rules on your site and I like them, but where can I find the OFFICIAL four square rules? I play with some friends who poach all the time, and they want the official rules to prove it's not allowed. They don't believe the rules on your site since they aren't considered official. Thanks. - Tyler 5/26/2009

Tyler. It's about time someone brought this up.

The way I see it, if you are searching on Google with the phrase official four square rules and our rules turn up as number one, and the article we wrote for Wikipedia turned up as at least number three, it's a pretty good indication that we are the real deal.

I would be ready to give up the title of "The Official Rules of Four Square" if you could find another organization that hosts a Four Square World Championships, ran a league for almost a decade, validates (or invalidates) claims for the The Guinness Book of World Records, and that plays by official rules other than these!
