Clavdivs + consistent spelling = ragnarok!

Keep on mangling, man, or the end of the world may be nigh....Does this mean you're going to start participating again as clavdivs? If that's the plan, I say go for it!

should you enjoy bowing down to the malevolent imperialistic pigdog of the western seaboard you would make like columbus and investigate your instruments and then make a choice about the great spider's web.while the portal of conversation appears depress the indicator of configuration,then choose to gaze at that whichyou must destroy. sort by the munchie cholcate chip treat and find therein your opponent,identified by that which you which to enter as your true self.

(er, that was my poor, poor, (yet loving) attempt to speak Clavdian. In Windows IE, clck "tools" then "internet options". When the dialog opens, click "Settings" then "view files". Find the ones that end with and and delete them. I don't know other browsers on other platforms, cause me and the malevolant pigdog are tight like that.)
