Apologies - I did not notice the comment to 'MrFl4sh'...and I'm pretty sure the new rule was posted after me (probably prompted by me, in fact). I certainly would not have presumed to ask for a key if I had seen such, and seen in this light, your response is totally understandable.
For the record, I totally get what both of you guys are saying, and would probably take a similar position myself in the same situation. Perhaps I took offence too easily to what I mistakenly read as a rude tone.
Again, I apologise for my knee-jerk reaction. I have no desire to offend or start a flame war.
And I did mean what I said earlier - please do enjoy the game. No hard feelings?
