I called Nils "Nick":

Thus this is merely the example of a Godess Switch attempt on this
list that has been most daring, most dependent on research ("Ah! Nils
Weinander is merely the Swedish aspect of Nick Brooke!") and most
likely to fail. Have you accquired a cheesy grin lately, Nils? :-)

I don't really think it's an insult to notice that someone has done
something wrong - what I should have said was that I know can say for
sure "I know people who have been dissuaded from participating in
LARP because of this attitude." Before I merely assumed this was the
case. And if someone asked: "Yeah, who?" I could say "A guy I know
from the Internet named Nils. Met him?".

But if you don't want to, I won't.

I will no speak no more on this matter. I heavily second that telling
stories (the oldfashioned way, you know, "literature") is the way of
exploring Glorantha. You are now warned - it will mean I will
write....
