MUDs are kinda like IM systems only more... and less. It's a lot
easier to simply share the code directly. Going to pastebin or similar
means switching to the web browser; and quite a few people have used a
MUD while unable, for various reasons, to access the web (usually this
turns out to be a DNS issue, but not always). Anyway, I never said
that Python was permanently unsuitable, but it's nice when I don't
have to worry about formatting.
