Sounds like a meaningful mutation to me.
Actually, I can elaborate on this, and others might recall enough to verify this. You probably remember back when I first became active again, and I was repeatedly criticising the fact that all fortress and sumo servers were basically clones of each other, at least where physics were concerned. That I think it strange (at least) that people seem to think there should be or even are "standarised physics" that must go with those game modes. Well, I remember having conversations in-game with people like sinewav and Gene about that, and saying things like, "this is stupid...why not a fortress or sumo server with Swampland-like physics, or Shrunkland-like physics, or whatever?"
So, here again, I don't necessarily have a problem with the very existence of a sumo server that uses Shrunkland physics (although, I would prefer if they were rather Shrunkland-like
, with his own tweaks, rather than a straight rip-off—be unique, ffs). My problem is that he did it without so much as running it by me first, that the physics are straight copied, and he hasn't made any acknowledgment of it in the server itself. There's also the fact that it came up in the midst of all this other crap going on, which gives the impression (and I'm inclined to think reality) that it was done as much to taunt me as to just get a different sort of sumo server up.

I've never denied being irritable, especially within the sociocultural context of this game's community (to do so would be like referring to myself as "one of the least irritable people in tron"). But I'm not asking anyone to necessarily go by my measure or standard of irritation. Rather, what should qualify is the sort of crap that would irritate, antagonise, or otherwise run afoul the average person. But that would exclude not only someone "extremely easy to irritate," but the overly passive, patient, and dispassionate personalities who sit back and take it as well—even, perhaps, your own.
