Hello,

My name is Steve Davidson. It is with some hesitation that I address
this letter to the group.

It concerns my friend Johnson Morikawa-Smith. He may be in danger.

For some weeks he has been telling anyone who will listen about
something called 'devil-bunnies', and going on and on about how the
human race is in danger. He's been buying vanilla extract by the case,
and hiding it in his room, and last week I met him in the checkout
line at Canadian Tire (our largest hardware-store chain) with a whole
shopping cart full of axes and hunting/canping equipment, plus for
some reason several of those big plastic 'SuperSoaker' waterguns.

He must have spent half of his pay that week on it (he makes a _lot_
more than I do), and I noticed that he didn't use his debit card to
pay for it either, as is his usual custom. He caught my look of
surprise and said, "I'm paying in cash now. _They_ might have tapped
into the national banking network." I didn't ask who _they_ were.

Johnson is an RF design engineer at Nakatomi Canada, working on the
new 1900-MHz GSM digital cellular phone systems that are being rolled
out across North America in the next few years.

He knows an incredible amount about cellular and data communications,
and his company is sending him around North America to do coverage and
engineering tests with a prototype of Nakatomi's North-American-spec
version of the Nokia 9000 'communicator'. This is the cellphone/pocket
internet terminal that Nokia's had on the market in Europe for a year
or so. It's an incredibly nifty little gadget, and I'm jealous as hell
that he has one. With his knowledge, test gear, and that prototype,
I'm sure that he could do all kinds of non-standard hackish things.

Another thing you should know about us is our spiritual orientation:
both Johnson and I are 'Neopagan'. To oversimplify greatly, we feel
that traditional European/American society has neglected the
relationship between humanity and the Earth, to the detriment of both.


I think Johnson picked it up from the influence of his Japanese
mother, but I discovered it through Neopagan friends at art school. We
actually met at a Neopagan festival in Wisconsin, and, on discovering
that we were both from the Toronto area, stayed in touch.

Johnson has always had a tough time with relationships and, these
days, feels rather bitter towards people, especially women. I think
this explains why he went so far in the corporate heirarchy, in spite
of of his Neopagan beliefs. Lately, though, he's been talking a lot
about dropping out of the ratrace completely, and changing his life
around. And that was _before_ any of this talk of 'devil-bunnies'.

Why am I mentioning all this?

Johnson left last week for San Francisco, and I noticed that he had
more luggage than usual: besides his suitcase and suit carrier (you
know, one of those folding business-suit things), and his tech bag, he
had a largish backpack and another bag which he insisted on paying
extra for, as carry-on. He would not let me look inside it.

Two days later, I got my ancient PC back (it had been out for a hard
drive upgrade), and I connected to my new Internet account at
Interlog, one of the largest internet service providers in Toronto.

I went looking for info on 'devil-bunnies'. To my surprise, there was
a Usenet newsgroup and a multitude of Web pages. I spent the next
couple of days inhaling the information. I'm still not convinced that
these 'devil-bunnies' are real, but I think Johnson believes they are.


If the devilbunnies are real, he would be a prime catch for them. And
with his life experiences, it probably wouldn't take too much for him
to be pushed over the edge, so to speak, and joining them...

I, however, am firmly on the side of the human race. While I
sympathise with the DB's ultimate goal of saving Gaia (unless that's
just propaganda) (if they even exist, whixh I doubt), killing off the
human race is not the way to do it. I would oppose this, and not just
because I'm a human. I feel that humanity has an important role to
play within the living Earth.

Johnson wrote this treatise thing explaining why the militant
devil-bunnies' efforts to directly kill off humanity are basically the
wrong approach, and what they should be doing is looking more at the
struggle within human society between what he called the 'Forces of
Greed' and the 'Forces of Gaia', and culturally opposing the Forces of
Greed. I'm worried that he may forget that he is, after all, still
human.

His hold on reality these days is apt to be a little tenuous (If he
reads this he'll be really annoyed), but I'm letting this out on the
Net in the hopes that someone will see him and let him know what's
really going on here, maybe help him get back to the rest of the human
race. I don't know his GSM email address; he didn't get a chance to
tell me before he left. I just hope he'll contact me soon.

Is this all a fantasy, or are we in deeper trouble than most people
ever suspected?

I'm going over to Canadian Tire to buy some camping and cooking
supplies. Holidays are coming up. I've already got steel-toed running
shoes; I needed them for work. Maybe the fire axes will be on sale...

Sincerely,
Steve Davidson

P.S: If you can't find him, try sending email C/O me.

[Author's Note: I'm going to try posting a copy of this, plus more
detailed notes on the characters, on the mailing list, if I can get
through to it tonight. Stay tuned... Scott Robert Dawson]

You're friend is in trouble now, even if he wasn't before. Your broadcast
over an unsecured channel is certain to have marked both him and you as
targets. Wherever you are now, LEAVE! Run to the nearest AoF recruiting
center, and UNDER NO CIRCIMSTANCES let a rabbit anywhere near you.

If you hesitate for even a second, which time has shown me that newbie's
almost always do, then you will be lost and forever unable to help your
friend.

Good luck.

well equipped but he should get that vanilla extract blessed or it is
useless.

Rolled? (Singing) like a Rolling phone. (joking) a rolling phone gathers
no moss.

Good. Now if he left any technology befind send it to "area 52". Our
agents in the post office will intercept the package before the
devilbunnies do.

Wow do neopagans sacrifice animals like some pagan cultures do? If so
sacrifice devilbunnies instead.

well let me see, the description is a misogynist of asian origin
a loner with alot of technology. Our agents will be out to intercept
him so he can join the Fudds.

To inform us fudds of course. You should have tightbeamed and encoded
this

for good reason I suppose, he may very well have had something life
threatening in their.

The devilbunnies ARE real. though for those who are ignorant we maintain
a facade of humor and fictionality.

Saving Gaia? they are causing massive extinctions in Australia. They
sort
of remind me about those people who know about conservationists killing
seagulls
to save the rare plovers and terns that the seagulls threaten to take
the
territory form. Those people refuse the support the conservationists and
instead
claim the seagulls have the right to live. In claiming seagull rights
they
remove the rights from two species and will cause the extinction to save
an
abundant nuisance species. it's awful. especially the fact that they
deny that
humans are animals with just as much right to kill species as other
animals have.
The devilbunnies have the same, SAVE THROUGH KILLING EVERYTHING ELSE OFF
way of
thinking. Just look at what rabbits are doing to Australia. This is NOT
right.
The devilbunnies must be killed!

It's not that clearly cut. What about the person who needed proof to
ban a deadly pesticide by prooving it harms animals by testing. He
tested it on vulture that were injured and impossible to rehab into
the wild, unable to fend for themselves. A pro animal group wanted
to stop the testing by freeing the vultures. Most of the vultures
died unable to fend for themselves and the pesticides remained killing
while he struggled to regain his tests to proove that they must be
banned.
Which one of these were greed and which Gaia. The group who tested
trying
to save animals at the expense of those too injured to fend for
themselves.
or the group that thought they were saving animals by setting them free
only
to kill more of them than the experiment would.

How about clear cutting, in the west it's damaging habitats. In parts of
the
east it's helpful because farmland is being replaced by forest and most
of the
animals are clearing dwellers. Now to say that cutting is an act of
greed will
help lower the numbers of some northeastern animals and save western
ones.
Now who is the forces of greed and who is Gaia? Cutters or anti-cutters.

We'll try and find him and tell him the true evil of devilbunnies.

Deeper trouble (though if you were totally clueless I'd lie and say
fantasy.)

Steel toes? WHAT A GREAT IDEA! it will hold off their chisle like fangs
long enough for you to kill them. I also recommend a gorget (mideival
throat armor) to protect your caroted artery, a popular devilbunny
target becase it contains the carrot sound.

Actually, you'd be better off sending the technology to us. [flick]
We have two decades of experience disseminating technology. And we
could use the money.

Of course, 'sending' is probably a misnomer, simply tell us your
location and we'll arrange a pick up.

But if I understand you right, the technology in question is already
patented and in production. [sigh] Oh well.

Oh, god. You can't be serious.

Oversimplified. Yeah. I'm sure it makes perfect sense explained in
detail. Heh heh. [wince]

>Wow do neopagans sacrifice animals like some pagan cultures do?

And do you build stone circles? Can you turn into deer by wearing
leather coats?

It's a new age group, buzzie. They're not real pagans.

Why am I not surprised.

The devilbunnies are experts at pushing people over the edge. And, for
that matter, pushing people up to the edge. And digging out the pit
that the edge is over...

>The devilbunnies ARE real. though for those who are ignorant we maintain
>a facade of humor and fictionality.

Yeah, real good facade there, buzzie. How are people supposed to
believe this is real if you go out and *say* that it's real? If it was
real you wouldn't do that. };)

So which side would you be on in the war?

What about turning the entire human race into little fuzzy bunny
rabbits?

Rationalization is cool, isn't it?

So do many devilbunnies. Specifically, six feet within.

>> what they should be doing is looking more at the

What does Gaia have to do with *opposing* greed? I'm sorry, but greed
is an extremely natural impulse, because it's a survival trait. It's
only through the application of intelligence and technology that greed
can be discouraged.

Not that I'm saying that it *is*, just that we *could*.

>>I'm worried that he may forget that he is, after all, still human.

I'd be more worried than that... actually, that's not true. I wouldn't
believe it, and so I'd only be worried that he'd be arrested for
cruelty to animals or hunting without a liscence or something.

>How about clear cutting, in the west it's damaging habitats. In parts of

All the important animals are forest dwellers. [flick]

Yeah, we'll brainwash him and make him a part of our cult. Is that
what you wanted? };)

>> Is this all a fantasy, or are we in deeper trouble than most people

We'd be in deeper trouble than most people suspected *anyway*. The
planet's infested with optimists.

Then again... would it be without bunny influence? [swishswish...]

I'd recommend stripping naked whenever you think there might be
devilbunnies around. It'll make you feel almost as vulnerable as you
actually are, which could save your life.

I hope no buns getting the wrong idea about this thread. I have no
intention of changing my sympathies - I was just pointing to both the
good and bad sides of being a symp to someone contemplating the choice.
I've shown by my actions which way I think the balance of good and bad
swings.

Its a bit of an exaggeration, but "The path of true fluff is strewn with

If a man has shown by repeated action that he has fallen into grievous
error and that for him there can be no reconciliation to the ways of
El'mahr, then it behoves his fellows to consider how they may best limit
effect of the sinner's evil.

Blackbun, we shall pray for an answer

Oh dear. I can't cope with does doing that unhappy emote thing. Mmm, I
think what you have to remember is that in the same way you look at
Wynn, Wynn has to look up to the legendary Lt. Shorthare [I am not
worthy so much as to mention her name, but I will attempt to invoke it
with due reverence].

I'm sure you are the darling of your warren, and I attach the bits out
of the Wynn Fan Club membership pack (at my own expense) that might give
a few fashion pointers or the like, which I'm sure you don't need, but
just in case. I've left out the parts that might offend.

Shug tells me you'd like my photo. I'm deeply unconvinced, but I've at
least attached it - please don't make fun of it.

Much as I'd love to visit I suspect the Lord Protector would take it
poorly if I visited either your warren (due to a misunderstanding, I'm
sure) or its chief Fudd enemy, so I've had to cross Glasgow off my
itineray for now.

Have a hoppy day.

Not really. They threaten everybunny. They even threaten themselves
when nobunny else is around. <ShrugFluff> Just consider it a normal
part of part of life. If they should start complimenting you

You've never been to Britain have you? Umm, that sounds a bit harsh.
Like, buns here fear Lucky perhaps more than you fear General LonGears,
and with good reason. You can see it in their fur when they mention him.
Proper respect is not enough, cringing obedience is all that will do.

To be honest, the thought of you in his clutches sends shivers down my
spine. I don't think your blithe spirit would be allowed to survive.

AT LAST. Kevin's found something he feels superior to.

I'm not saying he's right. It's just nice to see some personality pop out

"Red Fang" he said in a menecing growl. "Please read this again."

"Um" <TimidFluff> "Yes Sir. It doesn't sound very good does it."
<DroopEars>.

"NO, you blithering idiot!" the CO shouted "You just scarred the fluff
out of all of our symps! You probably set back recruiting efforts by
months!"

"I just wanted to suggest that the AWF should grovel before bunnies."
Red Fang whined.

The CO raged on, "There are better ways of doing that then insulting all
of our symps! You are going to spend the next month cleaning latrines
every day after class."

"Class?"

"You are going to redo all of your banter classes and you'll do them

Well, if I serve to get a good banter run on the AWF I'm happy, After
all, I'm lucky to even be allowed to see the newsgroup, unlike many
other symps. It means I get to see loads of Wynn's emotes (sigh).

But if you really want full forgiveness you could, like, send me a copy
of those banter notes. That would be way kind of you. Of course, only if
it's allowed.

(amusedfluff) and even here in Down East Maine, the bunnymovers can
transport symps without them being too cramped. They usually have to
stoop a little to get in and sit with their legs spawled-down the ailse,
but they still fit. >:)

Kevin, give in. You'd be much better as a bun, your name wouldn't have
to be changed much either....Kevin Blackbun would be a good name.

But, in that case it would mean that Lord Protector Lucky wants me to
consort (cough) with a cousin of his enemy. I'm not sure why he would
want that. And Wynn would take ... umm. Surely not.

Don't look now, but there's about to be another round of warren stomping
by Lucky, if my contacts are right. I've no comment on the rightness of
this (my comms being what they are), but I think I'll just wait awhile,
and see whether Lord Protector Lucky has the same opinion when the mess
is all over. I ... umm ... hope Glasgow isn't on his itinery.

Term emulation problems, lenny?

this does remind me of an old quote, though...

Yes, but you need some sort of punctuation in there. You might hope to
get the AWF to grovel, but I'd give up any thought of a grammatical
breakthrough.

From what I can tell, Shug is not easily distracted, and Bluebell's only
problem is that she has been starved of *decent* human company for too
long. Figures, given where she lives.

So stop trying to cause trouble.
