I don't know why you were ever in Eva once it became obvious that a female characteristic, which males don't usually share, and are not expected to, was sufficient to get to 2000 using simple and devious finger fiddling exercises contrary to the spirit of A2K's technical exigencies. The rules laid down on the Repeat Post message are explicit enough and offer justification.
It's as if we had been asked to compete in an egg and spoon race wearing high heel shoes and pencil skirts. Or who could knit the longest scarf.
Have I mentioned lately how much I dislike whiners?
The game was fair, a guy started it, and the guys even employed a bot. (Hats off to you, engineer!) So stop whining about it all being intrinsically female, spendi. That's loser-talk.
I did think it was hilarious that a guy started a game wherein the women went forward and the men went backward.
