In reference to our telephone conversation, a work-mate visiting from
out of state asked me what the "MUD" entry in my browser bookmarks
was. In explanation we ran headfirst into the chasm of the definition
of a MUD as purely game, or as a social reality. I did the usual
handwaving and story telling bit to illuminate, and didn't get farther
than a grudging, "Oh yeah, I guess."
I then passed over a hardcopy of the above.
"Oh! I get it now..."
You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make it think.
