Bottom line? EVERYONE that plays the game wishes they could dictate the rules... to their own advantage(s), of course!
Want proof? Have any of you ever seen ANYONE lobby for a rule that would DISadvantage that particular individual? I don't think so!
It's just that some (recurring) individuals do so more often, and more VOCIFEROUSLY; in my opinion, in (never-ending) efforts to tilt themselves advantage(s).
Jeff makes a good point that this place sometimes gets boring. In my opinion (again), absent such conflicts. Everyone loves a good fight.
Personally, I've grown battle-weary of participating in the GOOD fights. But I remain quite a fight FAN!
Whatever the rules (at any given moment in time), I do thoroughly enjoy beating the shrill voices at their own game. All the sweeter to do so with improbable/antiquated/obsolete/PRACTICAL equipment.
