Banishment (Oh, the Humanity)

Fair warning: this post contains dirty hash laundry. Sensitive hashers should avert their eyes, plug their ears, and sing “la-la-la” until they get to the next post down.

A local hasher emailed me, asking me to weigh in as a elder and condemn a guy for getting physically violent at a recent weekend hash. I’m [...]

Due to a long and intensive investigation of the voter fraud that occured at the last Interhash in Borneo, it is the [...]
