Aside from further wasting our time and bandwidth, what the heck are you
yibbering about.  The only mention i saw was a polite request to keep the .sig
down to 4-5 lines.  We get MUCH bigger .sig's here.  also, if you are going to
be this self rightous, please include an obcircle or send it through private
email.  in other words, if you are going to tell someone to RTFM, do it youself
first.  you are just being a silly hypocrit.

you saw this coming:
Has anyone out there thought of doing a name change command for players?  I was
thinking of an imm-only command that would extract a hunk of change out of the
player and then change there name.  Also post this name change to a room desc,
but that is something else.  Now here is the hard part.  What exactly needs to
be changed?  I know i would have to rename the rent/alias/something else files.
i think i can do this while the game is live, but it worries me a bit.  Does
anyone see any other complications that i could be getting into.  Normaly we
have people just start a new char an advance them, but that leads to all sorts
of abuses.

Can I just state a point to Mr. Quinn here sir, to RTFM.  I just performed
a check of ALL the emails that I have received from you, and I have
received over 1MB of your SIGNATURE FILE.  Please read up on netiquitte
and DONT include your email signature.  Thank you.
