    Hi from the actual Mercurial

    I don't know who the uneducated fool is that swiped my handle, but anything you see posted by 'mercurial' is not my doing.

    Other than that, cheers. Good to see many people I have missed returned.

    Good to see you too, Alleged True Mercurial! How can we know which of you is the true Mercurial? Does a rose by any other name not smell as sweet? If you are challenging the user named Mercurial for the honor of that username, I wonder if they would agree to a duel? We could set it up as a spectacle for the forum where the two of you compete in games of skill or trivia with the winnder being named The One True Mercurial. You know, or you could just ask him/her politely if they'd be willing to give your name back since they have not had it for that long by this point.



    Or are you implying this might not be an honest mistake? They haven't been up to any mischief that I've noticed.

Later, the Iroquois who showed up and inexplicably slaughtered every man, woman and child renamed it "Seriously, Fuck that Place". When French explorer Jacques Marquette passed through the area he marked his map with a drawing of a brownish blob emerging from between the Devil's buttocks.

    From what I can tell, this M:> chap has, by calling the @mercurial here an "uneducated fool", effectively thrown down the gauntlet. Now they just need to select their seconds, and we have a match.

    Now this is interesting, feel free to have the capital M, or even /\/\ or xXxXmMmMmxXxX. The idea of a duel is rather romantic, as well, not that I have any interest in being romantic with you. I didn't swipe your handle nor did I know you from INTPc, but I was informed of your existence after I registered with this name. In honesty I'm not that attached to the name and you can have it if you are and can get an admin to agree to change it. Then again, the peasantry seems to be lusting after blood here.

    Look at that, the first duelist has fired aside on purpose.

    Jk.

    Mercurial, if you really do surrender the name, submit to the Staff Desk your desired new name.

    Mercurial, you should have a contest to determine your new name!

    Well, I feel a lot better. When the new M showed up I asked if it was you. They said they din't have that user name before. I was flummoxed by the whole thing really. At least I know now whot on earth happened. damn. Sorry you got your identity stolen. It takes so long for some types, mainly N types, to even develop one. Crap. Dilemma.
    Hey, maybe it's not legal.
