Editors note Poison

Hello and welcome to Issue #22 of the Bootleggers Buzz, which I think it is fair to say (without any firm proof or evidence of any kind) that this is the earliest the Buzz has ever been published. My thanks go to the team for their hard work in making this possible, as well as to all you readers for pushing us to achieve this standard.

It's a new week; a new issue; and I'm thrilled to say that we've got a new member of the team, Sulphur. Some of you may recognise the name from a very well recieved freelance article published two issues ago and I'm delighted that they've decided to join the ever improving Buzz Team.

On to the articles in this weeks issue; I'm thrilled to say that Betty, Afty and Sulphur all have put in great columns that are well worth a read with them ranting, discussing updates and casinos respectively. ShyGuy also brings us the news regarding the disbanding of 23rd Gunslingers Co. I'm delighted to say that the number of freelance articles submitted has also risen dramatically to a level that I'm really proud of with an Anonymous Video (from someone anonymous); a 'Joke of The Week' from Goldhunter; and a new weekly from fridgemaster! All well worth the arduous journey down to the bottom of the Buzz.

The final article that I have yet to mention is one written by FlameS, with the input of fellow Help Desk Operator FlyingDeathSquirrel. In it they call for improvement in the games management, namely of course, BSF2000. I would like to take this opportunity to give this article the full editorial support of the Buzz. The lack of an FAQ since the beginning of the round, a bug in the State Don system that seems to have been ignored, and the general slow pace with which updates and fixes are being addressed are symptomatic of the state Bootleggers was drifting into at the end of the last round.

It is the opinion of the Buzz that more could, and should be done to make what was once a great game great again.

We are ready and willing to assist BSF2000 and the Elite Guard in any way we can in order to help achieve this, because at the moment, they're not quite hitting the mark.

A controversial editorial, in an otherwise boring Bootleggers week. Have a good one.

Joke Of The Week Goldhunter

A man and a friend are playing golf one day at their local golf course. One of the guys is about to chip onto the green when he sees a long funeral procession on the road next to the course. He stops in mid-swing, takes off his golf cap, closes his eyes, and bows down in prayer.

His friend says: “Wow, that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You truly are a kind man.”

The man then replies: “Yeah, well we were married 35 years.”
