Only if we can skip the SCA rules for it.  I have trouble remembering what
key is what after I put on all that duct tape.

*Diarmaid* would happily take the "of course we have those things - how
silly of you to think otherwise" part...

Think of it as 16th Century European Theology.  There are the Elect (the
people who are actually able to post freely to the list and get it in their
email).  Then there are all those poor people who may well be lovely and
friendly and decent people, but are all going to The Bad Place just because
they aren't the Elect.

I have trouble imagining anything as fun as diembowlment with a garden rake
(this would be the wide floopy kind, right?) unless it's that thing that is
so distressing to most people that I'd have to just unsub myself for having
described it...
