I have had the pleasure of a very erudite request to join us from Sackerson of Bearwatch, which implies the pleasure of asking you, my fellow members, to cast a discerning eye over his thoughts. He concentrates mainly on financial matters, and so should complement the City Unslicker's output. He and James have both touched recently on the potential of valuable metals, although they draw different conclusions. Still, if informed disagreement is not within our uncodified ethos, I am not sure what is. Your remarks in the comments, please. There seems to be an emerging idea that 72 hours is the appropriate time-scale for these matters to be decided, so you have until Friday evening.
