    I've read this forum for years and I still can't work it out. About all I know about the phrase is that it's used in Wasteland 2 as a reference to the codex, but I can't work out the origin of the phrase to begin with. If nothing else though, the main thing I want to know is what people mean when they tag a post with it, cos I just can't work it out.

    If I actually get a straight answer in the next post or two it'll be a fucking miracle at this place.

    i still dont know either

    its one of those codex conundrums you dont ask about becuase of ~protocols~

    you just hope someone reveals the answer in a random shitpost (RNG) or actively trawl the sites history for the answer (Loremaster skill check)

    me, i like to think of it as staring into the unknowable abyss of wtf

    I've gleaned some measure of insight. Behold these writings from the year 2011 AD:

    anon 1114 is schattenjager?
    bimbo is an insult for blacks in german, not for dumb slut. odd
    more research must be put into this
    hopw roewur ne
    My historians have been unsuccessful at tracing it back any further than this.

    Does this place have a Discord? I'd like to join it so I can personally bitch-slap all the members.

    Doesn't help that I can't seem to tag people's posts myself. I'm guessing it's limited to the age of an account or number of posts or something.

    I told a lie BTW...

    I've made an account once before. It was on the Grimoire thread around the time where Cleve had created a Steam page for the game, and when estimated release dates started to appear (which no-one believed).

    I once got a racist tag and asked why I had gotten it, then essentially all my posts were marked as racist. Guess who I am, and I'll make another donation. :)
