By my count, The Vagabond is at exactly 10000.
The edit feature really makes it easier to ascertain as there are no add ons et cetera.
And for the record...TV is historically the most stingy character checker I have known; he started the posting of character count trend (I think) back
when the character count was 800 (Imagine trying to do these debates with only 800 charcters guys...
Anyway, these does seem to be a silly issue to be having for a few reasons...first, the semper and I check (TheMythLives is a bit more than a sentence
over on external sourcing in his latest and probably will be edited for it). It is always a good idea to copy/paste your argument into the reply to
field and then press the space bar as this will give you your exact count (the edit function works in the same fashion).
Two...the discrepancy (if there was one and as described above) is a matter of several words...the difference of which would not have contributed or
detracted from the argument if it was removed...and vice versa.
And guys...please be careful when debating the rules as motivated by a percieved slight in an active Fight...we are situated in an imperfect
communicative medium and as such an observation could be interpreted as an accusation...please let semper and I handle the rules...
all means if you do think a breach has occurred bring it to our attention...
As you were...
