#1 was and still is the plan for KQIX, but there's no harm in making a poll showing these other options. XD

Erpy's right about the wording in #4 being a bit too extreme, because most likely we wouldn't shut down completely if presented with a C&D letter, but rather restructure so the game no longer violates any terms.  :)

(puts on Pirate voice even though "international lets talk like a pirate day" is well and truly over)

Arghh, yonkey lad, tis' a fine plan so it ti's, haharghhh! (swigs whiskey). Now if only we could enslave those scurvy knaves over at Sierra for allowing that unwholsome blight which was MOE, to curse these fair adventure gaming oceans with something so terrible, it makes this old seadog's blood run cold.
When cities burn and armies turn,
and flee in disarray,
Cowards will cry 'tis best to fly
and fight another day.
But warriors know it in their marrow when they die and fall,
It is better to have fought and lost than not have fought at all.
