Editors note MsNyxxie

WOW! Is the only word that can sum up this week\'s events! To think, we thought it\'d be a boring week, Affectionate and Adir saved the week (and the Buzz) with their one of a kind crew takeover of Friendship First! It\'s nice to see aspects of the old Bootleggers we came to love and seemed to miss made a return for one night old with an \"old school\" takeover. A job well done!

Concluding the week was a wipe served up by DamianBlackHeart (DBH) and Spine against Revelation. The Buzz, although glad we have material to write about and submit to all of you to read, send our \"Rest in Peace\" farewell to the players that died in both Revelation and Friendship First, we know most of you will be back and better in no time. Revenge is bitter sweet.

Bootleggers was riddled by a \"Reply-Hack\" this week as well. The hack, embedded into normal Bootmails, placed a player in vacation after clicking the \"reply\" button in an attempt to respond. Thanks to Sabin, however, bootmail is again hack-free and all players placed into vacation because of the hack were pulled out!

This week we have a new addition to the Buzz called \"Bootleggers Soundoff\" where a question is answered and players can take part in submitting their opinion about it for a chance to be featured in the Buzz the following week.

As always, we have our \"Behind the Name\" and wonderful Freelance articles written by the players for the players! Remember to send in your Freelance articles! To learn how, please read the article titled \"About Freelance Articles\" below!

Featured this week is the three to five part article titled \"Settling the Rumors\" where MsNyxxie takes rumors recently heard in the game (about the game) and goes one on one with Sabin himself to put those rumors to rest for good!

Other stories include the sell of White October, the new 15-minute rule and the Crew of the Week!

We would like to thank five players for their generous donations to the Buzz for any upcoming Buzz Contests! The Buzz would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to Pl4kkie, Samu, DonKozak, Randomized and iRetributei. You too can help donate to the Buzz for its contests by following the guidelines posted in the article titled \"About Freelance Articles.\"

As always, we hope you enjoy the Buzz and make sure to use the \"Report Card\" email we have set up. If you haven\'t heard or read about it yet, please refer to the article belong!

Thanks for reading! Enjoy!
