The world is changed: I feel it in the water, I feel it in the earth, I smell it in the air...Much that once was is lost, for none now live who remember it. It began with the birthing of the Great Parrots. Three were given to the Admins, immortal, wisest...fairest of all beings. Seven to the Supermods, great miners and craftsmen of the forum halls. And Nine...nine parrots were gifted to the race of Members who, above all else, desire power. For within these parrot was bound the strength and will to govern each race. But they were all of them decieved ...for another parrot was made. In the land of Spam, in the fires of a seemingly harmless thread, the Forum Lord Ziff Davis forged in secret a Master Parrot to control all others. ...and into this Parrot he poured his cruelty, his malice and his will to dominate all forums. One Parrot to rule them all... One by one the Free forums of Middle FileFront fell to the power of the parrot. But there were some...who resisted. A last alliance of Staff and Members marched against the armies of Ziff Davis. On the slopes of The Internet they fought for the freedom of Middle FileFront. Victory was near! But the power of the Parrot could not be undone. It was in this moment..when all hope had faded, that MercZ, son of the king, took up his father's sword. Ziff Davis, the enemy of the Free Peoples of Middle-FileFront, was defeated. The Parrot passed to MercZ...who had this one chance to destroy dancing birds forever. But the hearts of Members are easily corrupted. And the Bird of Power has a will of its own. It betrayed MercZ to his death. And some things that should not have been forgotten...were lost. History became legend...legend became myth. And for two and a half thousand years the Parrot passed out of all knowledge. Until, when chance came, it ensnared a new bearer. The Parrot came to the creature Troll, who took it deep into the tunnels of Spam. And there, it consumed him. The Parrot brought to Troll unnatural long life. For five hundred years it poisoned his mind. And in the gloom of Troll's cave... It waited. Darkness crept back into the forums of the Filefront. Rumor grew of a Shadow in the East...whispers of a nameless fear. And the Bird of Power perceived...its time had now come. It abandoned Troll. But something happened then the Parrot did not intend... It was picked up by the most unlikely creature imaginable... A Spammer....Dragonelf68 of the Spam Forum. For the time will soon come when Spammers will shape the fortunes of all. tl;dr: The story of how I came to own my parrot.
So does this mean you will eventually cast the Parrot into the burning fire's of Mount Doom?
You'll have to ask Graemedalf.
