Megan woll bed replace by a younger wyfman to attract more young viewers. This to satisfy the sponsors.
Or she woll be back to punish Cueball for his recurring destructions.

Could it be that Megan is attacking Cueball's attempts at bridging the two castles without her? She began the building and he followed. But she did most of the building - that could mean that she carried the burden of their relationship more than he did. He wanted to be apart of her life so when she left again he tried to bridge the two castles without her. Maybe that's where the attack is coming from.

Working for me. Forum filters are great to lighten the mood for random common words and mask naughty words. When it affects legitimate conversation, it detracts from the forum.

This is SUPPOSED to be a thread about a specific comic and it's lost any sense of meaning. If the mission of the mods was to slow down the viewership and relevance of this thread, consider it a success!

The mods react to the discussions. When they see something they think might be fun to change, they do. So, it adds up to incomprehensibility.

Phew, escaped most of the ~filt~ers.

I was going to say something about how this comic finally got me to register. Then, I was going to say something about how my girlfriend and I built a little trebuchet, and helped inspire our friends to build some bigger trebuchets (1-ton counterweights, and so on). But now, I'm just going to say I called to say I love you. And I wonder what the filters will do to the bottom of my heart.

(Confession: I haven't actually caught up yet.)

And I thought yesterday was confusing, when I woke up to a whole new religion! I left around page 91 yesterday, when Cueball had just taken down the first flag. I come back today to 140 pages, a forum titled "Things that are on my side for 600, Alex!" instead of "t.i.m.e.", and the ENTIRE THREAD reading as if it has been repeatedly run through a poorly-programmed translating algorithm set somewhere between Middle English and Scottish. I will have to break my rules, catch up via Aubronwood, and then come back here and see if I can figure out what kind of sorcery/insanity/early April Fool's Day joke occurred whilst I slept!

(Now curious about how the translator will mangle this...)

EDIT: Ooookay.... apparently this is a regular happening, and I am just a n00b. I suppose it just means that I'll be more productive today, not spending the time to catch up on 40+ pages. My boss thanks you! *tips hat to the mods*
