For the record, I have frequently and vigorously advocated for a unification of intermud networks. It seems to me that fragmentation is not what is needed, but rather banding together, even if the codebases and preferences differ.
On this, you and I agree.
Assuming you agree with joining the networks, then perhaps the thread should actually be titled "Truth and Unification", and we can get about the business of making a single, stronger intermud. You up for it?
