Noob attempts to join in but messes it up through his utter incomprehension of the rules, earning everyone's immediate scorn.

Apologizes to more advanced players.

Uses SQL Mind Injection into one of the rules (which seems to have never even come into practice) to immediately gain a large amount of the game's currency.

Annoying laughter meme.

reprimands player for using meme

informs player that there is no currency in game, and suggests in a less than polite fashion that maybe he should re-read the rules

Inquiry as to why this thread had no posts for five months.
Questioning as to whether I scared people away.
Expression of desire for that to happen in the Thread Necromancy game.

Long and unneeded greeting to all that play this game.

Explanation that I am a newb, and will make mistakes.

A random paragraph that shows how flippingly happy I am, followed by a clarification of an obvious rule.

Terrible play, then an embarassed looking image.

Apology.

Request for clarification if that means that the rule is clearly worded, or if the rule is not there but clearly implied.

A snarky "told-you-so" paragraph that seems completely oblivious of the fact that the author did not in fact tell anyone so.

A rather shaky play, backed up merely by a lot of waffly text about how it might just work...

Request went unseen.

Another terrible play and a congratulations to the owner of the most points.

A stating of opinion that the congratulations offered by the above poster were just an attempt to get him to give him points. Remarks that the phrase "to get him to get him points" would have been completely valid and true, but very funny and confusing.

Plays a medium level move, setting up for a stronger push in two of the game's unit of time.

Accusation of hypocrisy, in an even more arrogant tone. Reference to something that is not hypocritical as an example of exaggerated claims of tendency towards hypocrisy.

Insult to previous poster's intelligence for using Caps Lock including the phrase "tl;dr". No effort to continue game.

Play made with no reference to the discussion, in hopes that others will follow suit and the discussion will be over.

Play made, not because of hopes to deter off-topic discussion, but rather because player is too lazy to read more than the last post.

Assumption that blatant cheating is somehow in accordance with an as yet unread new rule. Play that uses previous cheating to an advantage.

Misquoting someone several pages back, giving evidence that a hitherto unheard rule is legitimate, but sadly expires within 10 minutes of this post. Abuse of said rule to gain many points.

Accuses previous posters of cheating.

Sincere apology followed by an insult involving someone's mother. Play that would gain self little points, but would cause previous move to have a negative effect on its player.
