    It may not be legally binding, but its certainly a de facto law because any people who choose to ignore the agreed upon usage will find themselves flamed into oblivion by an army of fiftychatters!!!! :evil:


    And the poll is awesomely close, keep voting people!

    Pretty much. I'm sticking with League after that photoshopped poster. It's too awesome to do otherwise.

    In other words, absolutely no consequences, from my experience with your little kick-happy really nice place.

    You could probably photoshop a couple of other posters from movies like the LOTR triology or Star Wars, for example:

    The Lord of the Strawmen
    The Fellowship of the Strawmen
    The Two Strawmen
    The Return of the Strawmen

    Straw Wars
    The Strawman Menace
    The Attack of the Stawmen
    The Revange of the Strawmen

    however no amount of pun's on movie titles and photoshopping of movie posters will ever beat the simple yet clever pun of...

    STRAWMANIA

    Your [pissed] intentional [pissed] obfuscation [pissed] of the [pissed] details [pissed] surrounding [pissed] your supposed [pissed] being kicked [pissed] for refusing [pissed] to divulge [pissed] personal [pissed] information [pissed] illustrates [pissed] that your [pissed] real purpose [pissed] is just to [pissed] pointlessly [pissed] fiftyhate [pissed] and not have a [pissed] good reason [pissed] for doing so!!!!!

    Strawmania because after thinking about it doesn't sound weird and just fits more.

    One thing I liek a lot about strawmania is that it can be easily used to target an entire thread ("this is just degenerating into strawmania"), a specific poster ("you're exhibiting a bit of strawmania dont you think?") or a specific post (by just quoting it and then saying "strawmania").

    Perf's take on the three...

    Strawmanbearpig, before Mobby posteded I briefly considered it but disregarded it as it doesn't make that much sense.

    Haystack: Too obfiscated from strawman, also personel reasons prevent me from voting for this one.

    Strawmania: Of the following wins. It's not as derogatory as my last roudnd favorite (strawmanure) but still pretty good.
