I think every GM knows THAT sort. Perhaps the Paranoia rule should apply
here: NO ONE MAY KNOW THE RULES - anyone who knows is under death sentence ...

BTW, how do you explain to the aircraft that just fell onto your head

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. 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.
