In a rare, unprecedented move, the producers of The Random Game have decided to open our personal mailbags to you, the viewer, to reveal a conspiracy that has been going on behind the scemes for some time.

What follows are faithful reproductions of the correspondance between A high-ranking Random official and the ringleader of this band of misfits, MagicClams. Some names have been changed to protect identities.

We do this in the hopes that decent, hard-working Americans everywhere who enjoy the Random Game will come to our aid! And help us deliver the likes of MagicClams and his followers into the hands of the proper authorities. There MUST be those of you out there who can help us escape the clutches of this madman!

A Background Note:

The first letter was sent by _______, a Random Officer, to reveal a "joke," namely, that a current Random contributor (Frecklejuice) was actually a Hecklers fabrication designed to offset a boycott of the Random Game by MagicClams and his ilk.

I confess!

I caught wind of the Random Boycott from one of you (a conspirator!) and was
going to build "Frecklejuice" (a fabricated screen name, as some of you so
aptly noticed) up into a big deal in your absence - but I just couldn't keep
the joke between myself and the conspirator!

All right, all right! You guys are right - the Random Game is nothing without
you. There. I've said it. Are you happy? Now come back and play nice.

ALL of you are great contributors to Hecklers Online. I hope you feel free to
let me know about any suggestions you may have to make it better!

Hi _________.

I'm the man who holds the keys to this game. You want it to continue, you
deal with me. You want it to have problems, you try to screw
know I can do it, so don't play like I can't. I have all the key players,
and the new ones who pop up are ALL TOO WILLING to follow my banner. Believe
it. You like our posts? Fine. Give us the recognition we deserve. The
pecking order of this organization (Based on seniority):

Emperor: MagicClams
Primary Rank: Biochick1, WLW Troub
Secondary Rank: IZZO, LeonardABC, Sour Soda, Tocadisco, JaneDoe68, Shortsigh
Tertiary Rank: BabyLamms, Ourself, SewerDude, Wallaby16, Demon ofHO

Our demands are as follows: 1. I and the primary ranking members should be
recognized as official HOs and receive the " one hour credit for one hour
work" deal that goes with the title. 2. All Random Posts will be
reorganized in order to create a caricature of Molly Ringwald. 3. The
secondary ranking members of this organization will have 3 hours apiece
creditted to their account. 4. The tertiary ranking members will have one
hour apiece creditted to their accounts. 5. Biochick2 and LtJG RJ2 will be
banned from posting in the random game, but they should not be told. They
should be subjected to the humiliation of posting day after day, to no avail.
6. The New York Mets will receive a center fielder to be named later.

Failure to acknowledge these demands by Friday (and I mean 12 midnight) will
result in a new boycott. Some of these demands are negotiable. Others are
not. The Mets WILL receive a center fielder, so don't even THINK about
arguing with that one....If you hadn't created FreckleJuice, these demands
would never have been created, so don't tell me that it's our fault. The
boycott was originally intended to show the PLAYERS how much respect we
deserve, but since it seemed to have the opposite effect on the HOs, we've
become annoyed. Do not underestimate the powers of the Emperor, or you will
be destroyed, as Attican was. :P See ya.

What can I say? You've obviously got us by the short hairs on this one.

After scanning over your list of demands, they all seem fair, with certain
exceptions. All that remains is for me to run this by our lawyers, the F.B.I.
(as is customary in cases of extortion or blackmail), and of course the
F.C.C. (as is customary in cases of extortion or blackmail that take place
over the internet or online service providers).

I'm sure they'll find everything in order, however, and we can begin our

Blackmail? Extortion? LAWYERS?!?!?! You wound me, sir! Deeply! You
certainly have a tiny view of the world. Was it extortion when the Bush
campaign made those lesbian pictures of Ross Perot's daughter to force him to
drop out of the race? Of course not! At worst, it was politics, and at
best, paranoid fantasy. :) We are no different than Martin Luther King Jr.
or Spartacus or Susan B. Anthony or TV's "Chachi", Scott Baio! We are
leading an oppressed people out of slavery and into the light of comedic
liberty! Blackmail indeed! :P I scoff at you and your lack of vision! I
say that that insult requires compensation. The secondary members will now
receive FIVE hours apiece. :-P So THERE!!!! See ya.

Hey _________!

Why no response? You respond, or I will be forced to beat you. Not to
mention your game. You have 24 hours from the moment you read this.
Response is mandatory. Lack thereof will be interpretted as a personal
affront to our collective dignity. Goodbye.
