Oh gods, this brings back horrible memories. Like when I moved all of
/website/rules to /website/rules/worldwerks with changed links. Or when
I put back up all of Az and Kass's content after they took them down.
Or when I took them all down AGAIN after we got a lawsuit threat and realized
that all the stuff kinda sucked...

Yeah, we get into discussion in #forge like this every so often, which often
get pretty interesting. I like the idea of trying it on the Lists, in fact.
