Most of those stats were set before Admin removed a Guest's ability to affect scores or set records. If a new set of quotes were to be released, he would probably do as you suggest.

I haven't had "rudder maun" in a long time. Had kind of hoped it had been removed. That one has been around for at least five years, probably more.
