If you haven't heard by tomorrow I can post a thingo in the help forum. Might prompt them to go and find it and activate it.

Well, the Ratzcoin has tanked before even starting... not enough of a base, no data to mine, not ads or audience to give it value... and nothing to use it on either.

Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

You should get over there, Lak. It's an anarcho-capitalists wet dream. I'm expecting to see Seth turn up at any minute.

You can't be banned there. And Seth would be a literal God there. All the young naive anarcho-capitalists would worship him. When he hears about the place I have no doubt he will head straight there.
