I'm old skool.  I'd prefer the offside rule to either be abolished or enforced for anyone offside - none of this interfering, active etc.  Make it simple.
Yup, I'm with Paisley (or was it Shankley) - if you're not interfering with play, you shouldn't be on the pitch.

Exactly!  Not getting back onside is gaining an advantage, even if later in the phase of play.  It's precisely why players are not allowed to leave the field of play without the ref's permission.

But then countless goals from corners would be disallowed, assuming no defender on the posts. Cross comes in, flick on, poked home at the far post, but the corner taker is offside.

Similarly, what if a player A runs to the by-line and cuts the ball back to player B. Player B lays it on (forwards) to player C who scores. Player A remains in an offisde position but is 20-30 yards away from the action. Should that goal be disallowed?

That's the whole point of the 'interfering' interpretation.

Is it still a jinx or an urban myth?

Which is why just getting rid of the rule is an option
