    Will consider joining. Will try to write an article as a sample this week and will send it in on Friday.
    This was a serious post:

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Nah, you won't be ridiculed one bit. No one is going to bag you for having a go at it. People might not agree with what you're saying, but you won't be ridiculed for it unless it's about people being rude because they fail to make a draft pick wihtin the three minute window allotted to them by the thread starter.

    Have sent in my application. I've realised I should probably try to do something useful with my life now I'm leaving university. I reckon boring people with randomised columns of words is a good way to start.
