Your character Morgan Freelance has been given honorary membership in the Discordian Cargo Cult. So there. -Oulatek 03:57, 4 May 2006 (BST)

Given that this places me amongst such auspicious company as the (very nearly divine) Emporer Joshua Norton, I am deeply honoured, and yet also, deeply conflicted. I am going to have to consider how best to ... respond. Anothertwilight 04:39, 4 May 2006 (BST)
As has been pointed out elsewhere, the RE (by what is publicly available) does not prohibit membership in other groups. I see no conflict with your dual membership. As one of meany doctors pointed out, I am inelegible for proper membershp as the RE does not recognize Pirates as Outsiders (contrary to game mechanics). -Oulatek 15:30, 9 May 2006 (BST)
I agree and find it appealing, amusing and flattering. I am sincere in my desire to properly respond - be it to accept and acknowlege the honour, or to reply in similar vein. With respect to Pirates vs Outsiders, you seem to imply that pirates should be considered both pirate and outsider given that the game mechanics consider pirates to be a kind of outsider. By what name should those outsiders who are not pirates call themselves? Settlers by dint of their settlements? But then we run afoul of the character class. It would seem that if we speak of pirates, then we have already made clear that we do not refer to any other outsider, and so, while 'outsider' may refer to any non-native, it may (contextually) also refer to any non-pirateAnothertwilight 00:56, 10 May 2006 (BST)
