    Evasiveness reasons: a lack of spinal fortitude, a lack of information, incorrect information, and even (coughs) attention seeking.

    Can you PM Lemon Lime about this, he's currently worrying that two thumbs down on one of his spirituality posts is representative of "people trying to control the forum".

    25. Avoid having Eggs and Spam for breakfast on days when you

    27. Be thankful that you have access to an online correspondence chess site with public forums in the first place rather than take it for granted.
