James, it is also not productive to forget to include somethin the other 400
people on the list care about.  take it to private email or include a nifty


obcircle:  I was just pondering how stupid it seem that mobs do not use the
wands, potions, and staves that they hold. (potions i can understand, the
players would never get their hands on them)  I think i am going hunting in
mobact.c and add a bit of code that:

   if(GET_EQ(mob,WEAR_HOLD)&&(that item is a wand or staff))
         figure out who should get the effect if it is a wand(heal/harm)

This is how the cycle has progressed:

Me: ideas
Others: some good, some bad, here's why we think why
Me: response to bad, counter-arguments, further points
Others: response to responses, more counter arguments
Me: response, question of accuracy of statements, evidence provided
Others: irritated, somewhat snippy replies
Me: irritated, snippy replies
<--- argument degenerates here

< bunch of drivel about how the argument has degenerated and bandwidth abused,
with no topic relevant discussion deleted for sanity >

Somewhere the entire discussion began to be about the people involved
and not the ideas themselves.  That's not productive.
