There is a flame war on some major problem of Mume (the subject in itself has
low importance) and you decide to take position.

The ass licker
--------------
Imps have put some major work in their Mud, they spent more time on it than
any player and should deserve some respect. Since Mume is THE greatest mud 
around, then their change is intrinsically good.

The paranoid
------------
Why the hell do Imps always choose to hurt my _____ [insert here 'class' or
'race'] ? The mud as become unplayable now! Anyway, Imps do never play Mume
so they don't know what they do!

The insulter
------------
FUCK! GET A CLUE IMPS! [Note: The insulter often has his caps locks key 
broken] HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO PLAY NOW? GET A LIFE AND PUT THESE FUCKING
BACK HOW THEY WERE IN MUME -1!

The 'anti word processing'
--------------------------
[Insert any of the messages above, with 120 chars per line, without line
breaks.]

The nostalgic
-------------
Is it really sad to see what Mume has begone. I remember, in the old days,
when it was possible to ____ ... In that glorious golden age people were 
more friendly, Imps and Aratar less annoying...

The democrat
------------
I think, IMHO, that every change should be debatted on the board before
implementing it. Then, when everything is cleared up, Imps may or may not,
following the voice of what makes Mume a great mud - its players - code it.

The 'cassandra'
---------------
[Cassandra was, in the Troyan war, a woman who predicted the fall of the city]
This change, and the other made recently, are the end of Mume. Many players
[Insert here some well known characters that have said they would leave] have
left Mume and many others plan to do the same. Take this change out of Mume
before it is too late!

The prudent Ainur
-----------------
All that I will say here is only my personal thoughts and does not, in any
case, reflect the opinion of the superior management. I think that this change
...

The imprudent Ainur
-------------------
[Insert one of the above behaviours, expluding the 'prudent Ainur' one]

The rebel
---------
Raise people of Arda! Rebel against the close minded views of Imps and Arata!
I have my heart and my sword, follow me and we'll change this world!
--XXX awaiting for demotion.

The RL
------
Come on, people, this is just a GAME. Outside the sun brights... Get a life.

The VL
------
I have put so many time in Mume and I cannot believe that all my work will be
ruined by this change! [Often 'paranoid' as well]
--XXX who is now unplayable.

The Annoyed Imp
---------------
This change is not negotiable. Take it or leave it. The next time I see an
Ainur expressing his personal views on this board...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok? Clear enough? Now melt all this behaviours to get your personal one.
