In this post right here Chron-dude, the genius that he is, suggested (in a roundabout way) that ROT-13 encoding should be used so we can discuss plot points (aka spoilers) without ruining the work under discussion for the unenlightened. I think this is a great idea: ROT-13 is a trivial method of encoding (you simply move 13 places right in the alphabet (wrapping around from z to a, natch) to encode and decode) that sufficiently masks the meaning you have to want to decode it in order to read it. There are also so many freeware implementations of this nobody should have to make a monetary investment. Of course, the more technically minded among you could dash off a few lines of Perl (douglips might, for example) or C or Brainfuck and implement ROT-13 that way. So what do y’all think?
A program with ROT-13 implementation is right here (scroll down):
