Do you think maybe he forgot to post a rule?

Could it be that when he said he'd decide the rules, he meant he'd do it randomly, as if he were power-mad?

Could it have been a conspiracy against myself, a noted bureaucratic leader?

Notice here that I specifically say these are the rules.

I didn't type questions, so it should be implied that I expect only one per post.

Hopefully this clears up any confusion, as well as points out what the general rules are.

I would also like to note that beefonthebone has exceeded the time limit for his turn, so is kicked out of the running. The new turn order is as follows:

eb0ny
maurog
jatopian
jbluestein
calamarain
bobpie

It is currently jbluestein's turn.(24 hour time limit from this post now. The question to answer will be Maurog's "Why can't I choose a cat?")

But didn't I post a question? Didn't I post a question multiple times? Doesn't that mean I followed the rules threefold?

He did post a question, he also posted a few after it. You never specified you can't do that.

Due to my unclear wording, snacko has begged me to be allowed one more chance. And just to make it clear, I expect only one question per post.

So here is the turn order, with maurog going next.


snacko
eb0ny
maurog
jatopian
jbluestein
calamarain
bobpie

Do you need to use the word beg? Didn't I stage it as a question which would keep with the theme as well as lessen the urgency of the request?

So, uh, do we just remove Snacko again for posting out of turn now?

didn't snacko learn from his first time posting a bunch of questions that he shouldn't do it again?

Isn't it safe to say we've digressed from the rules and topic so much they're now irrelevant?

Should this topic be turned into a place for people to post solely in questions?

The game is still afoot, with bobpie knocked out of the running for missing the time limit.

So here is the turn order, with snacko going next.


snacko
eb0ny
maurog
jatopian
jbluestein
calamarain

The question up to be answered is calamarain's, "Are you upset that we're not discussing cute animals?".

And isn't begging when you ask someone to be allowed to do something, snacko? Didn't you ask me to be let back in the game?
