Editors note Sean

Welcome to the second edition of the Bootleggers Buzz! It's been a fairly slow week so there has not been much to report on. However, we've been in a speculative mood this week so we have many articles doing some research or columns giving an opinion for your reading pleasure.

The only newsworthy event to happen this week was the first insiding of a crew. It seems that the elusive new Kill feature is pretty essential to giving us news to report on, so that's really the only thing of merit that happened last week.

However, that's not going to be enough to stop us! We take a look at how safe casinos, bullet factories and crews are, thanks to the Kill feature being out of operation. We've also asked the age old question of 2 car OCs versus 1 car OCs. Again, hammering on about the bugged Kill feature, we ask... where is it?

Since there's been so little to report on, the writers have decided to turn to columns to express how they feel about scammers, Organised Crimes and greed in Bootleggers; all of which could easily culminate in the infamous OC scam. Be sure to read them and give your own opinion on those topics.

Behind The Name, Buzz Team and Game Statistics are all here, as per usual. However, we are sans the Crew Catalog. I'd like to personally apologise for that!

Got our first freelance articles this week, too. RatFaceRay has provided a humorous comic iLow gives their take on the future of Bootleggers. Interesting stuff.

I'd like to encourage anyone who has any news to share to get in touch with the team or, if you're worried about confidentiality and all that, contact me personally. It's the only way the Buzz is going to be able to blow the lid off of what's going on that you can't just read on the forum. If you have any information you can share, please don't hesitate to message me and we can discuss it. Other than that, enjoy the read and we'll see you next week!

Cheers.
