: Hey! *Raising hand* Yo! English Trader! What does it take to get on board and listed as one o' you'ns traders? I mean, here I am slaving away at my art and craft, fingers full to tiny cuts, eyes going bad from squinting, back bent and sore from leaning over, feet flat from hard earth floor in the shop....
: Is it lack of a name for me? How about The Fat Trader? Um, no...FT is taken. Okay how about Enormous Trader? Nuts, ET is taken too. Okay maybe Cranky Trader.....shoot CT gone too. Ummm...straining brain.....perhaps That Dammed other Trader?
: Nope, DT taken also. Well how about TDoT then?
: Or is it because my initiation dance is unfulfilled? Com'on...I did the best I could. Chunky Sparrow is the best I can do...forget the Funky (Mohican) Chicken dance requirement.
: Please? Or do I have to set up my blanket all by my lonesome under yon oak tree?

First, I wish to remind you of specific Rules of Membership to the Traders Guild, which are outlined in the Link below, as established by my Dear Collegues, the CT and DT, with the provision that the Skunk be Dead (as you will see below) and while I would like to insist that you maintain Alphabetic Linearity (my own personal favourite, being pedantically inclined) our Absent Otto Mani Trader quite overthrows that requirement.
Second, beyond these criteria, well I must say that the Horican's all trapped out and therefore additional traders in fur will not be smiled upon (nor should they profit on such meagre resources). Additionally, you will have to do better than trade with wampum and brandy before we shall consider your supplication.
Allow me to confer and cogitate with my Associates, and we will respond forthwith.
