    @dazzhardy: No, @shawns is correct, that is clearly a name of a species, not an individual. I don't see how anyone could read that as the name of an individual on its face, and in the context of the ...

    This was great, thanks guys. Dan really balances out the saccharine niceness of Brad and Drew.Its kind of sad Dan had to clarify that each player was going to actually try to win. Games only work whe...
