Doon vs Haids

Grats!

Just noticed that last month 8662 posts were made, hadn't had that high post count since december 2005  :)

Why were so there so many posts that month? (I wasn't following TSL back then.)

Something to do with the Vivendi C&D, would be my guess.

Wasn't around then either, I was around at April 2004 though, where we had 11579 posts that month, but that was because we had competitions who could make the most posts a day  :P crazy people.

Right... All of the endless debates about IP and fair use and the suggestions to just change all of the names and release it as "Monarch's Quest" or some such thing. :P

Yeah - people kept pointing out that changing the names doesn't make it any less someone else's IP, and then several posts later someone else would suggest the same thing. It was a lot like the response to the second C&D but more so. :-\

LOL, I gave up reading the C&D thread after like thirteen pages.  People who don't come here regularly were making idiot statements and making me mad.  I checked in only when I saw that waltz had posted, since she was the headliner of Save TSL.

Ah, but now it sounds like a Discovery Channel shows about the migration of Monarch butterflies!

Yay! You know, it's rather unfair that you're keeping score when you're also one of the two players...

But I can't argue with you - you're just too stubborn!

If you had a point for every time you were stubborn, the game would be even more unfair! Definitely not!
