    Exclamation I want the casual talk regarding pirating games to stop.

    Some of you have gotten a bit too vocal about your stealing of games.

    Some of you have gone as far to posting "nudge nudge wink wink PM me if you want a link" in numerous threads as well.

    And I want it to stop now.

    Offenders will be warned, repeat offenders will be banned.

    You know its against the AUP, so stop. It really is that simple.

    that means to shake someone's legs.

    Timber is a curving frame branching outward from the keel of a ship and bending upward in a vertical direction that is usually composed of several pieces united. And...shiver is 2 : to tremble in the wind as it strikes first one and then the other side (of a sail) transitive senses : to cause (a sail) to shiver by steering close to the wind. (Merriam-Webster online).

    Shiver me/my timber.I can't find any authority to agree, but I thought that this was another saying derived from sailing ships. It certainly seems firmly attached to pirates. I think the saying represents the shock of a large wave hitting a wooden ship broadside and causing the hull to shudder. In other words, it expresses shock or surprise.
    There is the theory of the moebius. A twist in the fabric of space where time becomes a loop.

    Pfffft, I just see this as censorship, but we will conform because we all love these forums. Sides, who wants to be banned for talking about a subject that everyone else talks about? Not I... uhh that's for sure.
