    *Official* Twenty20 Is Boring Society Thread

    Warning: By posting in this thread you are automatically taking-out a subscription for life-membership to the Society.
    Such contracts should not be entered into lightly and all members would much prefer that our fellows be optional subscribers not kicking-and-screaming ones! Thee poor souls who wish to debate the merits of the 20-over game, please take care to do so elsewhere.

    Right, that's the disclaimer out the way: here it is, guys, our very own Society is born. I'm stoked we've come this far, it wouldn't have been possible without you - I'd like to give particular thanks to 16toS and sp713 for the gentle prodding in this direction.

    Anyhow, my central message is this: to spread the gospel, I'd love you all to carry the legend "Member of Twenty20 Is Boring Society" (preferably in our characteristic - courtesty once more of 16toS - red lettering) or something similar. This does not have to be perminant, I understand some of us of times like a complete purge of sig, but it would be truly wonderful if so. 'S long, however, as you can have it for a few days, it'll do, I just need to get a screenshot of a post - probably in here - from you, complete with sig, so as to forever preserve the spirit even if expressed only briefly.

    To date, I have several confirmed subscribers, and several unconfirmed... including:
    Rich Dickinson (my good self - President)
    16toS (?) (Honourary Vice-President)
    shortpitched713 (?) (Honourary Assistant Vice-President)
    Swaranjeet Singh (proud and most enthusiastic member)
    Liam Camps
    Zac Gelman
    Fraz ?
    Rich Edmunds
    THE Sean
    Turbinator (?)
    Nemesis27 (?)
    crickhowell (?)

    PLEASE JOIN UP! There is no subscription fee! All it takes is a post in here and a small sig-addition!

    Yours in great gratitude,
    Rich
