HIWPI = How I would play it
RAW = Rules as written
Here is a mantra you will hear every rules lawyer and RAW advocate say:
"OH GAWD!!! OH NOES NOT AGAIN!!! GW FUBARED HTE RULES AGAIN!!!"
Rules lawyers and RAW advocates are deconstructionists. First they must destroy so that they can rebuild the rules to suit them. They tell you how horrible is GW but they themselves can never ever create their own game. It's easy to cry like a little baby that needs to be burped but it takes an adult to play the game as it was intended and be a great sport about it.
I find it amazing that the HIWPI crowd has a lot more terpitude than RAW advocates. RAW advocates bend the rules very hard by playing intense word games and to me they are huge mobile douche bags.
