I beleive Chad has a valid point. While we all have our own sense of
fair, just, and cheese, it would serve us to remember that we have
gathered here to exchange ideas about the game we enjoy playing. It is
ok to vent about how somebody screwed you over in the last game, but
don't take it out on each other. God knows where else you talk about
this to a sympathetic audience that even knows what a Doomweaver or
Squat is. I suggest we don't take personal offense when someone has an
opposing view. Let's keep it friendly. Treat the rest of us as your
personal staff of advisors that you can heed or ignore as you like. No
need to intentially offend one another. Just delete the messages you
disagree with.
