I'm jumping on the bandwagon.

My prefix comes before.
My suffix is a cure.
My infix knows the rules.
Now answer this, you fools!

  • $\begingroup$ @Riley well, when I made my first Riley riddle, I tried to be original. Perhaps I'll make some more, and this time, keep to the traditions :D $\endgroup$

The answer is:

Prefix? ( M E T A )

My prefix comes before.

Comes before => Prefix or Pre

My suffix is a cure.


My infix knows the rules.

The ref knows the rules

I think it is


My prefix comes before.

Pre, comes before many words

My suffix is a cure.

fix, is a cure

My infix knows the rules.

ref, knows the rules


This is a shady attempt. I think it is:



Comes before=pre


A pill tends to be a cure.


This is the shady part. Supposedly someone with a lot of REP knows the rules?
