lol i hope this is true.
wouldn't be a bit surprised for chud to not know this is a big no- no. they've got no GM and it appears that they've told him he can do what he wants with personnel. they may have forgotten to ask him that one kind of important question, "do you know the rules?"
i guess when you have to settle on your 11th choice you're willing to let a couple things slide.
That's an interesting point. Chud has never worked on the personnel side, and right now he's got free reign to do as he pleases, so it wouldn't surprise me if he did contact DA and there are breadcrumbs to prove it.
