Digest: Threads 201-300
In the mean time, let's look at...
Still prehistoric times, much like the first hundred. Many broken links. Not worth linking too, though—they're broken. Among those are a plurality of deceased Geocities pages.
tdecius did a LOT of posting; he and Matt account for a good 90 of these 100 threads. And most of the very, very few comments. Most threads still have none; a few have comments from whichever of the two posters didn't make the post. Matt also replies to himself now and then.
Matt likes guiness
This one's interesting—not only has the link not died, the website in question, shotgunrules.com, has gotten an incremental makeover from back when Matt linked it. Much of the text and layout remains the same, but it's been prettied up, adorned with Google Ads on the sidebar, and revised here and there. Note particularly the change, in the Exceptions section near the bottom, from "The Opposite Sex" on the older version to "Significant Others" on the current revision. The addition of a Rock, Scissors, Paper rule for arbitration of contested shotgun calls is a good thing as well.

Did I mention Rock, Scissors, Paper?
And that's a wrap. Look for antifreez's post in the next few days, as well as a contribution from another super secret guest correspondent (named "dios") whenever he gets a chance to put one together.
