By the way, could the Mods put a link to this thread or copy it or something so it shows up in the other threads or something? It's important to warn as many people as possible.

No one we care about is that stupid to fall for this.


Also, things like these have been going on with Skype for a while.

I don't know what other thread you have in mind, other than the Skype thread in Spam. Putting this in there would be a bit pointless because people would see this thread when they come into Spam anyhow.

Plus, ya, it's not that big of a deal.

I heard about that about a week or two ago.

And I'd assume you'd take a shot at Soul quicker than me. Guess he has to try harder to get that far.

Light10s - Blood Lord! Your avatars are becoming more epic. You make me feel like getting on all fours and submitting my loyalty and obedience to you.
Fievel - Numerous campaigns and conquests, countless bodies decaying after the abandonment of victorious battlefields. Such is the life of Blood Lord.

Just don't think too hard about it, avoid the virus, and everything will be peachy.
