The Undead are largely unconstrained, except by the bonds of amity. The Undead Thread is a peripatetic social event, to which all are invited. There are rules, which can be summarized as “Be fun, or sad, or completely off your rocker, but don’t be obnoxious.”

Yeah, right. I'd like to see the documentation that validates that.
sincere.....L O L
