Faustian Bargain won the game. Yep, forum members work or go to school at those institutions.

Hmmm...does that mean that there are other forum members at my institution?  How were you able to conclude that there are forum members who attend or work at these institutions?

Yeah, that is kind of weird. I'm guessing he found out either by email address, or by IP address. I went over the list a second time, and sure enough, I saw my school on there. I can't believe i missed it the first time.

OK, well, let's make that Part II of the game. Like on "Who's Line Is It Anyway?", 1,000 points will go to the person who can guess correctly: How do I -- a lowly user, not an administrator of the forum --know where everyone works or goes to school?

You're just a crazy, psycho, unstable internet stalker. Everytime someone has mentioned where they work/attend school in a post, your crazy killer brain makes a mental note of it, and it is never forgotten. Do I get the 1,000 points?

Vero's been a forum regular for quite some time. It's not that hard to pick up details over time, especially over the course of several years. When actually looking for details for the purpose of a game like this, those things become even more noticable. Also, Vero has, in the past at least, been a fairly prolific eBay seller who has likely (if anecdotes are correct) done a lot of business with forum members, myself included. I'm sure that also helped as far as picking up information.
