I work with a "Westly" so I guess I blurred Wesley and Westly and got Westley. (interestingly, the only one flagged as incorrect by the software is the one I know personally.)

I'm one of the small group that never hated "the boy". He had bad episodes. But, they ALL had bad episodes. Is Wesley worse than Pulsaki? I hated her entire season. Is he worse than the worse use of The Goddess of Empathy and her catsuit? Wesley wasn't that bad.

but The Game still sucks.
