=)Right, and I agree 100% with you except for two points.First, any programmer of a mod that can display a very large number of debuffs will create the mod in a way that allows it to display an infinite number of debuffs. Simple list/set algorithms. Well I should say any programmer worth his beans, and all the major mods have brilliant people working behind them, so it's not a problem.Secondly, there is a way to display infinite amount of data, conceptually at least. And even programmatically there are data type definitions to convey the concept to the computers, thus allowing, at least theoretically, an infinite amount of debuffs to be applied. However I highly doubt this is the case with WoW. Not because the people working are not smart enough or have enough numerical theory under their belts to tackle it, but just because the existence of infinite amounts of anything in a game is preposterous.Wouldn't it look funny to see a mod with inf(Curse of Doom) up. That'd win.Off topic is good. Been a while since I was in my theoretical computer science course though. ;)
