If the [AD] is from someone that has consistently shown that they are
working on new ideas, serious code, then I'll stop by, look around, offer
a suggestion or three and then go on about my way before I get conned
into coding/building for them. :)

The people that post about not being able to compile even though they
didn't run 'configure', but now they got it compiled and here's the
address!!! Well... Those people I tend to leave them be until they figure
out that there are hundreds of ZipMUDs (tm) out there.

What is a ZipMUD? Well... It's where someone unzips/tars the MUD,
compiles it, and proclaims that it's ready for public consumption even
though they haven't changed one spit of the text, world or code. I avoid
ZipMUDs like the plague. :)
