It's a shame that you no longer have a temple level! And I can well imagine the fun of epic poetry about the Abyss.
I take your point about the vicious rumour and the list not really being yours anymore, and it's a shame about the Abyss and your mom. I will try to remember this in future; but it feels a little rude to just post my out-of-the-blue snippets from time to time and I feel happier asking someone. Perhaps I should now ima that imagine that the list is owned by a frog-prince, waiting to be charmed into his real guise.
I guess that trolling is the only appropriate response to that place, and for them my son is anyway only a pawn in their rebarbative games.
