I remember Dill created one of these threads in 06. Soon afterwards the cards went on a losing streak and posters genuinely believed it was bad luck. There were major cries to lock it. People were actually worried a magic number thread on a mid-sized message board was impacting the outcome of cards games. Eventually the pressure on poor dill became so great he asked me to lock it.

It was a GRB low point.
