****. you would have done a lot of good for the world, on multiple fronts. any advice for dealing with miket23? i can't stand the guy.
easej: I'm in the fool business, not the advice business. But, as a general matter, it would be a mistake to try to "deal" with MikeT23. If Godfather Mike did not exist HBD would have to invent him. He plays, nearly to perfection, the role of the blustering curmudgeon suffering from a terminal case of Big Fish/Small Pond Syndrome. So, naturally, he rises to any bait. That, in turn, attracts fools like me to play him and to play off him.
That's what this game, or any game, is about - play. So we should never seek to "deal" with Mr. Mike. We should enjoy his simulated presence and be thankful for it. And we should try to compliment the character he plays with the characters we play in counterbalance and/or support of his. Such play serves to deepen and enrich the amusements of HBD. MikeT23 adds great colour and entertainment to the game. HBD would be a poorer place without him.
