Depending on how much Scorp likes them, only maybe.

Calvinism had quite a bit more philosophy than that. X may be talking about it, although I don't know enough to agree or disagree. The Calvinists did virtually run Geneva for a while, though, so they must have had some economic ideas that worked well enough.

?Alorael, who would also say that a society that forces people to be at loose ends has failed. While America is workaholic, it is better to have something to occupy your time, especially if you enjoy it, than to just have a lifetime to kill. This can be replaced by model building or mountain climbing in some cases, but many people genuinely want to have a job.

I've always heard it pronounced "Bah-bar," and there's only one R in the word anyway. That could just be the usual English butchery of words, but I'm inclined to accept it as the majority opinion. Unless, of course, the elephant also happens to be a Barbar.

—Alorael, who is also not surprised to see Oma winning, even if he isn't actually a person. That's a sign of knee-jerk liberalism, though, and that's not any better than any other mindless prejudices. Even Bush is better than a zealot. Okay, Bush is better than other zealots. Slightly.

No, Jeff does not read posts often. Sometimes he drops by on the boards when he has just made a new game and wants to see what bugs have been uncovered, but even that is rare.

—Alorael, who believes the useful has been surgically removed from this topic. So its life will likewise be removed with the sniping of surgical precision.

This topic lacks only the gratuitous insertion of blatant stupidity to make it a true representation of Spiderweb. I expect Scorp shall rectify the situation shortly.

—Alorael, who supposes others could do so as well, but not with Scorp's flair. And you know he could never pass up a topic like this one.

Whether or not General is much better, it hasn't been removed yet. Let's not make it so bad that Jeff decides to correct this.

—Alorael, who thinks it's getting to be about time for another petition to restore Misc. Not that it will get anywhere, but the effort has to be made.

Actually, I think having the whole seen tinted red detracts from that certain quality that Arctic's picture has and Feran's does not. On the other hand, it may just be the presence of the word Alec, which brings in a whole new range of emotions beginning and ending with AHH.

—Alorael, who would like to know whether he should blame Feran, Khoth, Arctic, Imban, or a combination of the four for the sudden appearance of shounen-ai. It's probably yet another conspiracy...

It could be a comment on Jim Moran. It could also be a sign of idiocy. Take your pick.

Oh, and congrats, LF! I'd be more enthusiastic if this topic hadn't taken a disturbing turn towards discussion of my incarceration in a basement... Without second-story windows, how could I snipe?

—Alorael, who believes Machizmo got up to six posts somewhere. It's probably still in A2 if someone cares to look. But that was not only intentional but meant to get him banned.

If I were a grammar snob, I would still consider failure to use the subjunctive mood improper grammar. But if I was an ordinary person, I wouldn't really care. Most people don't use the subjunctive any more, and it's hopeless to try to revive it.

—Alorael, who still uses it sometimes, mostly because it was brutally drilled into him by very scary English teachers when he was a small and easily traumatized child. Who knows what was done to Drakey to turn him into the (former) spelling police?

The reason there is no place for spam on Spiderweb is because the company that hosts these boards requires more money if we waste lots of bandwidth. Jeff is unwilling to pay this money, so we have to keep the completely pointless posts to a minimum.

—Alorael, who wouldn't like to see anything else go the way of Misc. That was the closest thing Spiderweb had to a spam board, and it died of excess irrelevance.

The Summer Movie Threat... in General

Movies are, by and large, things that happen to other people as far as I'm concerned. I pay very little attention to what's being produced by Hollywood and see even fewer of the products. The only thing I am even thinking about seeing is the Matrix sequel. I fully expect it to be terrible, but I just have to verify it for myself.

—Alorael, who also looks forward to the LotR sequel, but that will most likely not be another summer movie. It would fit right in as yet another sequel, though.

I have realized my life outside Spiderweb is miserable and had a heart attack. Now I think I'll give this topic to the death to die.

—Alorael, who enjoys the traditional mangulation of language in locking posts. Yes, it's horribly stolen from others, but it's entertaining anyway. And now... -FIN-

In Baldur's Gate, my party has all the line-walking skills of a blind, one-legged drunkard and manages to get stuck in walls I didn't even realize existed. The only thing that has ever stymied my GF party is the opening or closing of doors.

—Alorael, who cannot say anything about BG2, since he hasn't ever played it. However, he can say that you don't construct your own party and then melt them down for essence when you're done with them. C'mon, you know you've always wanted to scrap that irritating guy you picked up just to fill out your roster...

I happen to like Geneforge, thank you. And it's not quite a competition with Baldur's Gate. Geneforge has an entirely original world and a far more open-ended plot. The pathing system also beats BG hands-down, incidentally.

—Alorael, who doesn't think the discussion is that helpful anyway. Jeff won't read anything on these boards, and he won't halt production when the game is already in beta testing. But he has said he may continue Avernum...

Who is Shy Guy? If you mean Jeff, then you're confused. Jeff uses the Spidweb account here.

—Alorael, who supposes there are other Jeffs on Spiderweb, but the Jeff who immediately comes to mind is Jeff Vogel, who is not Shy Guy.

Unless, of course, she has been lying to us about her age all along and she is actually only as old as Drakey!

TGM was originally member 1098. His account became a victim of the unregistration bug and he rejoined as member 2268. And in his eternal quest for new names, he apparently decided to remember his old account.

—Alorael, who moderately detests names that are made up of numbers. They are possibly the least personalized names one can create. It's a good thing that TGM is already TGM, or he'd just be assigned a random value in each post.

I think Order Mage can get the point from the topic already. Creating too many new topics is bad. Now this thread is only abuse central, and it will die the death for its sins.

—Alorael, who delivers yet another sniping with great pride. This week is pretty good on the locking front for a time with no imminent bannings.

Make that a third. But it makes sense if you use furry math...

I think online real-time games breed fast but inaccurate typing in order to avoid slaughter. Then, of course, the programmed language-manglers disperse into the general population and spread their horrific spelling and grammar throughout the internet.

—Alorael, who would also like to thank various online communities for teaching him profanities that he had to look up in at least three dictionaries of different languages before understanding. When everyone curses casually, it takes something special to get noticed.

Order Mage, the idea of PM's is to keep private conversations from intruding on the public boards. Posting notifications for each PM completely misses that purpose. If you want to communicate better with members, I highly recommend AIM or regular email.

—Alorael, who will now lock this topic as only slightly better than spam. Remember, people, unread PM's make baby senders cry!

TM, that wasn't exactly called for. Just because Diet Coke is really terrible doesn't mean you need to be vulgar about it.

—Alorael, who would rather... er, give up skribbane for a few minutes than see the WTF Award cleared for Spiderweb. Scorp would post every single one of them ever made in every topic.

However, I believe somewhere something says that a quarter to a third of all nephilim children are nepharim. Unless the nephilim don't like each other very much, that sounds like a common mutation or recessive genetic trait.

?Alorael, who also can't think of anything even remotely close enough to nephilim that crossbreeding would be possible from a genetic standpoint. Besides, the only other intelligent mammal present in large numbers is humans, and there can't have been widespread interbreeding between humans and nephils on the xenophobic surface.

Congratulations, RoR! Of course, you would have reached 1000 earlier on your first account, but now you have it in writing.

—Alorael, who will take this occasion as a good excuse to drink skribbane. After all, it's quite a bit better than whine. Then again, whining is a favorite Spiderweb activity...
