-From where I stand, Wonko, you're not making the most stable argument. You're saying, essentially, that we shouldn't jump on possible ways to win as fast as possible, which is something you've been doing for a while now. You even take people's scams when you don't agree with them, just on the off chance that you're wrong. But the one time you don't do this, you've got the moral high ground? I think not. As things stand, you're the only one arguing Anything's case here. If e doesn't have a problem with it (and indeed is being a far better sport about this than I would have expected, even trying to repay me points /you/ tried to take), why do you?-
