And extra shots archery almost completely eliminates the double moves
Not everyone plays for turns or "optimal" play.

No, but I was responding to your claim of it being "pretty stupid" to go against M with less than 20 base speed. It is certainly risky. But given the evidence of a 57k play win, it is demonstrably not uniformly stupid

Fine, I withdraw the comment. "Undue risk" according to my play preferences.

Nick is, as usual, correct. It's not a formal vs informal distinction. "Approve" and "approve of" are simply different verbs. An annoying part of my job is approving some of my colleagues' expenses. I don't always approve of all the expenses I approve. There are other people whose expenses I'm not responsible for approving, but I might well approve of some of their expenses.

Right, but it's just really unusual to hear it in the present tense. (I think that's the grammatical tense in "... and I approve this message"?)

It wouldn't sound weird at all to me to say "... and I approved this message". This would also (arguably) be a more logical thing to say since, by the time the viewer sees/hears the message it's already been approved.

Anyway...
