And the last line should be Stick your head in bantha poodoo.
It seems worthy of note that Bane was inspired by Revan's holocron. In Revan and Malak's Sith, there may have been many "Sith" but there were only two Darths. After Revan's capture by the Jedi the two Darths were Malak and Bandon.
The obvious answer is that Yoda is secretly a Sith.
""The Jedi Order learned of the "Rule of Two" around 188 BBY during the Dark Jedi Conflict.""
I don't remember that at all! This was mentioned in the Plageuis novel?!
What I do is ring George and ask him, if he says "what the fuck are you talking about?" I consider the matter to be non-canon.
To be honest though...Yoda does seem to be well versed in the Sith. Hell, he's even able to deal with force lightning directly.
Some have sugested that Yoda may have done what Luke does in the Dark Empire series...and that's take a stroll on over to the dark side in order to full understand his opponents.
Why is that a problem or an indicator of anything important? Yoda is a skilled force-user.
In the games, lightning is always a dark side power. Selecting it from the powers menu gives you Darkside points in the shooters and you can't take it at all unless you rape a sufficiently large number of puppies in the RPGs.
The only other person who uses it without being insanely pointlessly evil is Kyle Katarn and he doesn't count because he's a totally broken mary sue.
Look at the full list of Sources - some of the information may have come from different sources and was compiled into one for the Wookieepedia entry.
David Brin thinks so.
I don't bother with any of that - is there anything in the films to suggest it's a problem?
The only thing in the films that suggests it might be a problem is that only Sith are ever seen using it - Palpatine and Dooku. It seems pretty clear that Force lightning would be a manifestation of the Dark Side since it causes excruciating pain, and that isn't exactly something the Jedi would typically seek to inflict.
The Yoda example doesn't quite work as any sort of evidence that Light Side practitioners may also use Force lightning, since he doesn't generate it himself but merely collects and redirects it at the enemy who first used it.
