The game is not. The POSTS ARE OFF TOPIC. Have you actually read any of those
posts? All they talk about are the technical specifics of the game and how
awesome the programmers think they are. They never go into character
development, storyline, or really anything to do with Sonic.

If you don't agree, you have the option of leaving.
I DO NOT appreciate you sending a flame to the mailing list.
If you want to do it again, please just unsubscribe.

Do not reply to the list with this please.

A few people complained. But it got a lot of people worried that the site I
have about Sonic stuff would be history.

When people post about what sound system a game has and all the technical
aspects like that, it's definatly off topic. If someone wanted to talk about
the storyline of the game, that would be fine.

Ok, i have removed you. This is _NOT_ cool. I have offered twice to start
a twisted mettle list, which Mighty has said no to. But trying to get
people to unsubscribe from this list is just crossing the line.
I'll unsubscribe you right after this message goes out.
