Why the heck would it link to the Dungeons & Dragons page?

I'm not expecting it to link to this TSR, but it just seems a bit random...

:confused:

EDIT: Just Wikipedia'd it... makes more sense now...

I've got The Student Room on my bookmarks as TSR, but I accidentally put .com on when typing it...

There's plenty of places that use the acronym TSR I believe. I knew of the DnD TSR before this place existed, so we can't really complain.

I double this statement and say that the OP should actually give us the link to give us soemthing worthwhile to write about.

Because 'random' does not mean what you think it means.

I'm sure enough people know what the word random has come to mean in slang terms for it not to be called "misusing" it any more.

Edit: Unless you're a bit of a linguistic purist, of course.

Because TSR published DnD before Wizards of the Coast bought them out.

I don't really agree. I'm fascinated by the development of language. Think it should be given a certain degree of freedom.
