    Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I think news about the creator of UO is UO related.

    Best wishes to him and his new bride!

    Lady British.

    Hehe, I wonder why he missed implementing this concept in the beginning. :)

    Anyway, May the Gods give them Happiness and us Beer!

    You are totally missing the point of "respect"
    The announcement is that RG is getting married. If you don't care, the respectful response is to just not care, and go about your day. Saying "I don't care" is not respectful.
    Also, until you actually volunteer to contribute to Stratics, you don't get to dictate content.

    Unified,

    For many of us, yes, this man IS/WAS kin. He was a part of our in-game play. He was Lord British. We interacted with him, he interacted with us.

    Others have addressed your remarks. I shan't beat a dead horse.

    Respectfully,

    AW

    Watch the vid. You'll see RG met his fiancee because she is an investor in the gaming industry. I'm thinking maybe the bank accounts may have had less priority than you seem to imagine.

    *raises glass to the happy couple*

    That's the one! She'll be starring in Prime Suspect on NBC this fall. I'll watch the show with reservations because it will probably not to justice to the BBC series which starred Helen Mirren.

    A few posts have been removed. The legitimacy of a thread is based on the discretion of that forum's moderators. If you disagree feel free to send the mod(s) a PM, Trolling the thread is not the proper avenue to take. Further problems may not be dealt with in such a nice manner as they were this time.

    Anyone know if there is age difference between them? She looks a bit younger than him. Not that it matters, I'm just curious/nosey.

    Umm.. your king has abandonned you because he refused to fight against the gold selling ring.

    Hardly a king anymore.

    A honored creator of a lasting tradition maybe, but not a king.

    That's only when the woman in question isn't there for the discussion. And if she is, better be vewy, vewy careful. :stretcher:

    I like the way my husband handles that *issue*. He says one must always remember the day of her birth but never the year.

    He is a good man.

    The true ethical question is that if a woman is willing to provide her age, or what she thinks of another woman's age... thats her prerogative.

    I also had her around 45-50...

    Oh and yes in that case, this woman is a public figure who gets picture taken with EX-lord Brittish. There is no good reason not to talk of her age, which is public knowledge.

    I admit that if I followed Petra's rule to the letter I wouldn't have posted this lol... but flutter is here to protect me.

    Wait no ! Don't leave me pwwhhhlllleeaaaassseee !
     
  41. wait a sec wascawe woman ... let me check the odds >here<

    She ain't here/present ... so 'tis okay and proper to dish?:lol:

    She's the age of my oldest daughter, and Richard is 8years younger than me ...
    and I have more hair and less gray than him ... *chuckles*
    *ahem*
    Just saying ... I'd have a shot IF I was interested ... :lol:

    and my oh my ... apparently "some here" aren't aware of the complete adage
    about books and covers ...
    shouldn't be done even with PERFECT eyesight ... :scholar: *tsk tsk*

    o'well, enough of a review of current cult of personality ethics ...
    I'm out
    and y'all are >dismissed<

    No worries I got yer back. The lines on her face and neck make her look older than she is, but mostly I saw the veins in her feet in that picture had thought for sure she was 50-ish.
