I'm feeling stifled by the lack of available punctuation. I'll trade you an "E" for an exclamation mark.

It's SO much fun stealing other people's letters. I was hoarding all of the As in the lower left corner for a while - that was a bl_st. Great link.

I've been observing this for 5 minutes, and in that time. someone's attempted to spell out WHIRLPOOL at least 10 times, someone else tried to hoard all of the yellow letters, two people had a fight using a green M and an orange K, someone else attempted to make a huge circle in the middle with all of the letters, and of course, right now, someone is attempted to spell ASS FUCK, because that is very clever.

there's a battle now between METAFILTER & MONKEYFILTER, but the entropy is just overwhelming both.

i had seen this earlier with less traffic. It's wild to see it with such frenzy.

'notsnot' stayed put for about ten seconds.
'entropy', oddly, was there for 20.

It's kind of amazing that no one's ever done this before, innit? (unless they have and I just missed it on one of the internets)

Damn! Too much traffic.

I'm having way too much fun pissing people off by stealing their letters as they build their words. Blort and Fark indeed. *steals!!*

heee heeee! I spit upon my hands, raise the black flag and prepare to loot the stashes held by the letter hoarders.

Avast ye, scurvy skallywags!
