I guess this came across a little harsher than I intended, I didn't mean it
to be a criticizm of other cards (believe me, I don't think I could do
better) I thought they were great, as well as very interesting, but they
tended towards complexity and elaboration on cards that exist already.

Note the "no offense", I really thought that those ideas were entertaining,
this note was to show that these were a)feasible b)interesting AND c)fresh

Again, This post was not intended as a flame, and I hope that no one thinks
I meant their card ideas were not good, because they were.

The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
