First off, before we of the Big Muddy approve of any IMC, they will have to
change the name
of their city to something other than Columbus. How can we have an IMC
named after such a tool of imperialism. I suggest Bartertown or Submuloc,
which has a cool satanic ring to it, but is actually just columbus spelled
backward. seriously, though, we at big muddy welcome the new collective.
