Please, people, allow this post to be the last and the only response to the one preceding it...

Dikiyoba, I like. See if you can work Alec in there somewhere, and perhaps Zeviz and FBM... it seems incomplete without all the oldbies...

When the Doctor and Saunders show up, you know something big is happening...

I think it's a little late to get banned and actually make a statement in Ash's favor. I mean, intentionally evading the autofilter and linking to obscene images can be done any time for any reason (or no reason) at all. TM's thing, at least, had meaning.

One of the reasons I was Lady Davida for a while was because I couldn't change back to Sir David. It's a common problem on the boards, though nobody knows why it is. It's safe to say, though, that if he changes his name, he may not get it back for a while, if at all.

TM is banned? (A sad or a celebration topic?) in General

Most of you know how I feel about TM, and his current offense is very different from Ash's in intent, but even I think that banning him was way overboard. Has he done something extraordinary recently that I simply haven't noticed? If the signature was the proverbial straw, the camel must've wanted its back broken - compared to some of his other actions and statements, it's nothing. Nothing at all.

Odd as it feels, I'm against TM's banning. If I've missed something major, tell me.

EDIT: Well, I personally prefer Ash to TM, so no, my moniker won't change. And it's scary, but you're probably right about the crash.

Jeff's got a point, but banning Ash without credible warning was definitel going a bit too far. I'm all about Ash.

Alex, you're back and something's happening in the Spiderweb community. You know what to do.

Thank God for signatures.

...on a lighter note, welcome back, Undine! As a matter of fact, I was wondering a week or so ago where you'd gone and if you were coming back. I'm glad to see that you have. Polaris is at www.polarisboard.net/board, in case you're looking for it.

The post is fine, Thralni. I thought at first that you'd brought Orloki in, which certainly would've been a bit premature, but, of coruse, you didn't. I don't think you overstepped any boundaries, really.

I'd like to keep things moving too, though... I won't post next because I've posted twice recently, but I've got several ideas to build off whatever everyone else writes...

Just a little off-topic musing:

Catholics (correct me if I'm wrong) believe (or believed) in limbo, and different stages of hell. I personally believe that Heaven is God, in a way, and that God will eventually defeat evil, thus freeing all souls from Hell (and limbo, if it exists). It's reasonable to assume that unborn humans do not go to heaven; they are still human, after all, and therefore carry the burden of proof of suitability for heaven, and as they haven't had a chance to prove themselves, they cannot experience Heaven. Does that mean that if the soul is gained at conception, at least 70% of them are in some kind of limbo? Well, maybe so, but an eventual eternity in Heaven afterwards seems fair enough, doesn't it?

I've been told that a group of mathematicians once tried to determine if there could be infinity inside infinity (and infinitely large part inside another infinitely large part) and, rather than coming to a conclusion, decided that it didn't matter. For the reason above, I disagree, and wish someone else would take on the task...

OOC: (For the record, I've got permission to use Cain more than I normally would in this particular post...)

IC: "Where did these wolves come from?"

Tuulentekija spun around. "Cain! We were attacked. Where are the others?"

"Filbert is back." A wolf corpse fell from his grasp and came to rest on the floor in a pile of matted fur with its slain companions. "I hope Lisha's killed him, but we won't know until she and Edith catch up with us. These beasts attacked me further down the tunnel. Why are they here?"

"Orloki sent some sort of scouting force. The de- uh, their leader had strict control over them. If we're attacked again-"

"What is she doing?"

Both looked at Melora. "Most of the books were destroyed," Tuulentekija replied, "but I hope this one will cure Brother Sequoia. Otherwise I may have to try myself."

"Melora."

She didn't stir.

"Melora!"

"Don't - why disturb her? She may be able to heal him."

"We must not let her become possessed! Melora!"

As Cain moved toward he to rouse her from her trance, she began to read. Her voice was her own, but sounded as if it were being used by another, one inexperienced with her vocal chords but one so old, so powerful, that it didn't matter. Her eyelids slid shut, softly, and she continued reading, not seeing the symbols on the page, not needing to.

"Melora!" Cain placed a hand on her shoulder and squeezed. "Hey!" She continued reading. Cain lifted his hand and brought it down on her back, hard. She hardly faltered.

"Cain, it's not Orloki."

"What?" Cain paused, looked at Tuulentekija.

"It's not Orloki speaking. Listen to her."

He did. He closed his own eyes and concentrated on the sound, keeping it at arm's length but observing it closely. His own demonic side made no sign of recognition.

"No. You're right. It's not Orloki."

"It's the book."

Cain peered over her shoulder. "What is this book? What are these symbols?"

"It contains a power older than Orloki."

"You know this?"

Tuulentekija dipped his head. "No, but from the way she reacted..."

Cain snorted. "Never trust a demon."

"Then why are we here?"

Both turned back in the direction from which Cain had come. Lisha stood in the darkness, a dagger in her left hand, Filbert shifting nervously behind her and Edith notably bringing up the rear, her own dagger gleaming at the end of her arm. Lisha's mouth was serious, but her eyes were playful.

"This is no time for humor. Trust me or not, Lisha, we are almost upon my former captor. You'd better decide quickly."

"We'll follow you, Cain. What is she reading?"

All turned back toward Melora; Edith stumbled, righted herself against a stalactite.

"Orloki's book. This swordsman says to leave her."

"The book is not Orloki's." Cain raised an eyebrow. "Let her continue. Melora would not take unnecessary risks." Not to all of your knowledge, anyway.

Cain sighed in frustration. "Right. Will you help Sequoia now?"

"He is in Melora's care," Lisha responded simply. We will wait here." And I'll keep a close eye on her. If Orloki is powerful enough to have corrupted that book... not even Cain will be of use against him.

Actually, all of his posts in this topic to date have been quite pointed, even if the first was somewhat ambiguous...

I'd rather read about medieval times because I'm a bit of an escapist. A few seconds of consideration is enough to disuade me from wanting to live back then, but hey, romanticized ideals are nice to think about once in a while. I think I'd like to have explored the world before it was all discovered.

EDIT (had to post first to see what my profile was): The quote is a line from an obscure but good book that had a pretty big impact on me several years ago, and still hasn't left my subconscious thoughts. It kind of summarizes my idea of immortality on earth, and my intention of doing or creating something that echoes noticably for generations.

The Polaris link is a plug, of course, and the other links are just various other sites I like, cleverly embedded in my little contribution to natural selection (the idea being that if a moron's computer happens to freeze while my signature is on the screen, they may follow my instruction and remove themselve from the internet. I don't have any real proof of its effectiveness, but on the other hand, I haven't seen a certain newbie around recently...)

Means of transportation to work/school: Car, foot.
A RL nickname not previously mentioned here: Um... Durstë?
Worst choice of Halloween costume you've ever had: I went once as a jockey on (inside) a cardboard horse. The thing was like 4 feet long and I went with two others in the same kind of costume. Getting up and down stairs was a nightmare, which I suppose is fitting.
A mythological figure you identify with: Hmm... I don't know many mythological names, but Athena is my favorite goddess, and represents me better than any other I can think of.
A Simpsons character you identify with: I don't watch the Simpsons.
Favorite Sesame Street character: I used to love Grover, but I haven't seen that show in 12 years.
Favorite Spidweb game character: There was some kind of rebel leader in one of the Avernums that I loved and wished to make a larger character, but i can't remember his name now. Haven't played in years.
Favorite (English) word: Ambiguous, maybe, or savvy... kind of depends on the day.
Favorite cereal: Corn Chex. So light, so unsatisfying, so delicious!

I'd assume that black Mormons don't believe themselves cursed. If Romney agrees with them, then I'd have no problem with him on that point. If he does not, then yes, I'd vote against him based on religion.

It's kind of amusing to watch Aran's reponse. I'm picturing Salmon asking the question and Aran kind of pulling his chin down and grunting "yes" as unintelligibly as possible...

I don't know about "perfectly acceptable", Zeviz... where exactly do you live? You say that here and you can expect quite a storm of refutal and accusations of racism.
About Irving, I agree with Alorael - it may not be right to lock him up, but Austria doesn't have much of a choice. I'd argue for his freedom, but practicality is always a nice thing to maintain.

What sparked this, Synergy? I know why you're leaving, but usually there's one moment that sets one's mind that way, and it generally proves to be the greatest obstacle to their return. Or the opposite, if they're masochistic.

For what it's worth, I'll miss you. I don't have enough time to read through and respond in topics like the God debate, but what I read of yours has made me respect you and has already modified my own views. I hope that, like every other oldbie or old newbie, myself included, you'll return before long and find a happier medium between real and online life. Goodbye for now, hopefully not forever.
