Please, don't ever bring up X in a Santiago thread if you can help it. It will just remind him to go on another of his hysterical harangues against me for not bowing to his will.

I wasn't sure if I should stick with it or not, since it is technically against policy, but didn't feel strongly enough about it to change anything. -- G.
