Re: Problem with my sensei

(I was told this story by someone who swears it's true.)

The wargame Diplomacy can be played via the Internet. One new but enthusiastic player went off to a meeting in a city far from his own, and was so excited by his position--he was about to commit a spectacular treachery on the player playing France--that he felt impelled to show his plans to the guy sitting next to him at the meeting.

That night he found a message in his conference mailbox: "Nice plans. By the way, I'm the person playing France."

There's only one Net, and you never know who's listening. The best policy is not to say anything you'd be ashamed of, but not to worry too much about the petty embarrasments.
