Glad the folks who felt like they wouldn't ever be able to get out of bed again are getting a reprieve here, but this was mind-numbingly blown out of proportion

What's your point? That humans exaggerate when they're hurt? Welcome to Earth. Have some empathy.

If it doesn't unlock automatically, try filing a request, and it should work right after.

I posted update #2 at a friend's dinner party after enjoying a few glasses of good wine and before digging into some amazing bourbon glazed ribs.
Feels good to do good :)

For all the critics of the 1000000 spg points for game seven, perhaps that contributed to the popularity of DDMS and make this go viral?

Guys who regained access to your previously suspended accounts -

Did you get in your inbox all the emails that bounced during the days it was suspended  - or were you missing a gap of a few days worth of emails?
