jedelmania has correctly guessed the easy rule! :)

For those still trying to solve the hard rule (spoilered to save space, anyone can read):
Spoiler:

None of these words match the hard rule. ('Ideal' matches the easy rule, of course.)

Does that mean it's my go (in which case I have a rule) or do you want someone to get the hard rule first?

I don't think it's that easy to get the hard one given that all we have to play with are yank and appeal.

It's your go. I can keep the hard rule until my next turn, if I get one!

Early guess, but

Spoiler:
is the hard rule multiple sets of repeated letters? (at least two different letters are repeated in the word)

jedelmania and EoM both made some guesses that have yet to be responded to.

Yes, all of these words are words I am guessing.
