  • SAS For his August 13th renaming of dozens of pages (was there a point to this?) --StormCrow (SAS: It was five pages, not "dozens". And of course there was a point: people refer to the "4-4 point", not the "four four point". And for some reason it's impossible to adjust the page title to "4-4 point" without moving it to 44Point. Perhaps I should have marked all the edits as minor though. (ChessWhiz: Duh. :-))
