An old tired joke

Words that don’t have a T: Krofburg

Words that do have a T: Australian Troll

Please note the difference.

I know you like your T and A, BSR, but they don’t apply here.

In all seriousness we have some newer players who may be confused about the spelling and that doesn’t bother me. This post hopefully clarifies things. But the meme is old. Let it go.

Personally, I think we're got it all wrong from the beginning. It's clearly Kreftbeg

I also did not know. I am detecting a hint of the Streisand Effect :P
Me miserable! which way shall I fly
Infinite wrath and infinite despair?
Which way I fly is hell; myself am hell;
And in the lowest deep a lower deep,
Still threat’ning to devour me, opens wide,
To which the hell I suffer seems a heaven.

Okay to be fair the one time I did say it the other way was by accident... and I still feel bad about it a little.

I'm thinking about starting a petition to have the server lore edited to "Tburg."  I know you're all with me on this.

I will always pronounce it Kroftburg as a non-local and will always spell it this way IG when speaking.
