Ok, GTA is being a bit of a nazi here about form.
Taking Hal above as an example:
Apparently we're supposed to provide two answers. After Hal took his wry potshot at DM, Hal also should have then put up a new word related to his own answer for someone else to attack or follow through on in the next post. So, GTA, I guess you want something like this:
[Hal] French history[/hal] should have added, say [Hal] Napolean[/Hal]
[me]is not relevant to military strategy[/me]
If this ain't what you're looking for GTA, I await Beavis's efforts not to embarras himself....
