Default I'm a pedant, sorry

Wasn't going to say anything but isn't http://www.adventuregamers.com/newsitem.php?id=947 exactly the same as http://www.adventuregamers.com/newsitem.php?id=918.

Worries me that this is probably the first AG thread I've started.

Are you blind, man? They're nothing at all alike. Now you can download them at Gamershell, too.

So, um... look over there! A 3-headed monkey!

That's really not a nice way to describe Emily, you know.

Boy Emily is coming in for a lot of stick lately. First she was described as scuttling. Now as a 3-headed monkey.

Maybe people are upset that, when The Witch's Yarn article link said "Cue Emily's impressions!" they didn't find her doing a passable Kylie or Britney inside.

A thread most controversial, that’s what I want to start
Full of impassioned arguments, of posting from the heart
And for this stimulation all will be thankful to me
On come on everybody it won’t work if you agree

How 'bout a new thread titled Let's Bash Emily With Big Colourful Feathers?

You boys would have liked that, wouldn't you.

I find it interesting that all attention has been placed on me when I'm not even a news updater... *ahem*

Obviously you're being used to distract attention away from the similar news items in the same way a magician, having misplaced the magic stick he usually uses to attract the audience away from the secret of the trick, hires a lovely (and scantily-clad) assistant to perform the same task.

Or as the saying goes.

His bird is as good as his wand!!!!
