I think it is funny. You have "Roolz", but you change them
as you go. Sounds like a kids' game, no offense intended: just
interesting.

Perhaps, but in general the changes are all within a fairly narrow range, and usually the same transgressions repeatedly. So far we're occasionally ignored the No-Capitalized-Words rule and the only-one-change-per-entry rule. I offer that it's a matter of esthetics, and we break the Roolz to post an entry that feels particularly elegant or clever.

this too shall pass
I'll say this: I've lost interest due to the lost roolz* -- does that sound disingenuous coming from a hogmasterŪ?

*or maybe it's due to the endlessness of it all! wink

link. I'd rather use the word countlessness as I do not count posts and pages. But a hogwash might distract the attention. whistle
