@matiaid1Most epic post ever! I was looking into your comment when I realized there was so much more to it then it seems.Notice the word chosen was 'nope' and not 'no'. It was obviously an intentional anagram for 'open'- clearly indicating that you are not 'open' to the concept of spending 10$ real cash for a vanity pet.I also noticed that both 'nope' and 'open' are an anagram for 'peon'- as in, mindless followers. In addition to your resounding decision against real money vanity pets, you've also embedded a stinging indictment of those who'd purchase them.You chose not to use an upper case letter 'N', making the post seems more casual, shrouding your true intent in the casual style of internet speak. This subtle yet powerful technique will stymie all but the most paranoid of code-breakers.Finally, you ended with a period, that both hinted at the subtle error of the lower case 'n' and implied a finality to your statement. By concluding with a period, you give your statement the weight of a court ruling. The question lies before us. The verdict is in. The cryptic answer is 'nope.'Bloody brilliant.
