I second that, however...

Not to seem harsh, meine Damen und Herren, but I believe we have been over this
argument before. Whether or not bioware should affect mages has been
exhaustively discussed before (Or should I say 'beaten to death'?). The same
holds true for the arguments about Smartguns, and Grounding through Quickenings
[ which has shown up three times that I can recall ] Other topics have
similarly re-surfaced; it appears as though we have found ourselves in a
feedback loop.

Desto mehr etwas sich aendert, desto mehr etwas bleibt wie immer.

"The more things change, the more they stay the same."

I am making a conscious effort not to seem critical, and I am aware of the fact
that many have joined since those arguments were fought out originally. All I
ask for is a little orginality in the topics we discussed here. The paranormal
animals discussion and the issue of Nega Mages are just two examples of this.

To put it simply, I am suggesting that we "keep the creative juices flowing",
so to speak.
