My first rulebreaker, hope you like it. It's not too difficult, and I suspect it might have been done before...anyway, I'm limiting askers to five questions per post, since it's easy. =)
There could possibly be a CA instance, but I don't expect it will come up.

WHAT? I see no puzzle. That's an explanation. Is it hidden within the explanation? Any starting clues?

This type of puzzle doen't rely on a puzzle statement. Rather, there's a certain rule that I'm following in answering your questions, which you're trying to find out. That having been said, I'll answer your questions according to the rule.

WHAT? Do you know what a rulebreaker is?I see no puzzle. That's an explanation. Is it hidden within the explanation? It's more like the explanation comes with the answers. Any starting clues? Zounds, every answer I've given is a clue!

I see. I see. Indeed. =)

Zebra? Are my favorite African animals. Black and white? But not only zebras are black and white. Dalmations fit the category nicely. Straight talking? How about curvy talking? B&W film? By now I think we can get past the black/white thing. Racism? Right...Video game? Every chance I get. XD

Cwm fjord bank glyphs vext quiz? Can we please speak English?
Mr. Jock, TV quiz Ph.D., bags few lynx? No, actually this is more fun.
Blowzy night-frumps vex'd Jack Q? ...Blowsy?
Veldt jynx grimps waqf zho buck?Ergd med zwoo rest nelp (I was trying my hand at the gibberish).

Are you alternating the first letter of your answers between: the same first letter as the question, and the first letter of the question except flipped (A=Z, B=Y) etc.?
Maybe?
Not?
Or maybe you can simply choose to alternate between the two options above at random?
ZEBRA?

Very nice. That was the only rule, and which one I started on just depended on which was easier to work into a sentence. Kudos!
