The Round Table - first mentioned by Wace in his "Roman de Brut" - was not only a physical table, but the highest Order of Chivalry at the Court of King Arthur. Its members were supposedly the cream of the British military who followed a strict code of honour and service. Sir Thomas Malory outlines this as:

To never do outrage nor murder
Always to flee treason
To by no means be cruel but to give mercy unto him who asks for mercy
To always do ladies, gentlewomen and widows succor
To never force ladies, gentlewomen or widows
Not to take up battles in wrongful quarrels for love or worldly goods
Giovanni Boccaccio in his "De Casibus Virorum Illustrium" further says that the twelve basic rules of the Knights of the Round Table were:

To never lay down arms
To seek after wonders
When called upon, to defend the rights of the weak with all one's strength
To never lay down arms
To seek after wonders
When called upon, to defend the rights of the weak with all one's strength
To injure no one
Not to attack one another
To fight for the safety of one's country
To give one's life for one's country
To seek nothing before honour
Never to break faith for any reason
To practice religion most diligently
To grant hospitality to anyone, each according to his ability
Whether in honour or disgrace, to make a report with the greatest fidelity to truth to those who keep the annals

I'm surprised at the cream of the British military as Sir Lancelot was French.

Asherman,

Both the Roundtable and PUP groups have been "suspended' for the time being. I don't know exactly what's up. I would guess that Sophia would have been advised since she initiated the Roundtable group.

I guess I should mention that the suspension seems to be for technical/administrative reasons. I don't think there is any type of disciplinary thing involved...

I'm sorry I haven't furnished info. I've been diligently and fervently addressing the problem. (Currently on knees.)

When I get a definitive answer, I'll send PMs.

I have been talking to Sofia about this. PUP hasn't been notified as they are dormant.

This is due to administrativea and technical issues as fishin' mentioned.

I have been asked to administrate PUP but I don't know how to get started.

Could someone in the know assist, please?

PDid,

My alter ego has a membership at PUP, and last night, I was going to visit, but couldn't find you. Lash is still on your list of members. I would understand if you think I should be dispatched. I think anon was under the influence when he invited me... :wink:

Are you operational? Have I been relieved of my membership? (No hard feelings, if so.)

Thanks, rog.

And Sophia, I haven't edited anyone because I can't get there either. That is my problem at this point.

Have PM'd jespah again for assistance.
