The whole point of this sim is to do something interesting just for the sake of it. To call it South America is  boring.

AAD must really suck if you guys are already posting here again.  It's bit what?  A month?  Three weeks?
AAD is doing just fine.  But your provocation was genuinely appreciated.

Provocation?  Will there now be a lengthy discussion at AAD about jdb and how misguided he is?  That seems to be a common response there whenever anyone here is critical.  Tongue

Well, he would have to register and post there to find out, now wouldn't he?

Here's the thing though, I don't really care what the AAD crowd thinks of me or whether they even think about me at all.  Finding out whether or not people on AAD are talking about me because I criticized them and/or what they're saying isn't an incentive or disincentive for me to re-join.

I have to say, as a vegetarian (I eat seafood because if I don't it'll [Inks] up my health but that's it), hearing that Antonio has some sort of problem with vegetarianism is one of the more worrying aspects of this to me.

You really shouldn't take what Bgwah says at face value, especially against my AND Oakvale's testimony. I have actually reported his post for slander and, considering that my fairly humorous and harmless comment to his lies being exposed was apparently deleted, I'm assuming that his despicable assertion will too.

I haven't seen any such testimony. Or you've interpreted is last post in here very differently I have.

Jesus F. Christ, learn to read.

Don't feed the troll, Antonio.  He's just trying to provoke you into over-reacting so he can change the subject to "what does Antonio really think about vegetarians."

Better question: Is OutofBox sucking up because he wants to sit at the Kewl Kids table at AAD?

Yes, and it's getting really obnoxious.

5. Saving Private Ryan (as Captain John Miller)
18  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Do you support the bans of Tweed, BK and AdamGriffin? on: July 25, 2015, 10:48:20 am
- Tweed should be permabanned and there really is no legitimate argument one can make for letting him stay or come back in the future.  TNF already perfectly explained why Tweed shouldn't be allowed to remain in this community.

- From the information available, I personally don't think BK should be permabanned, but the stopgap ban was perfectly understandable given the circumstances.  That said, Dave is clearly a thoughtful and reasonable guy from what I've seen and the best thing is probably to wait to here what he even ends up deciding.

- Griffin is a tougher case because we (the community at-large) don't know what we don't know.  The impression I got from the way that the mods have discussed this is that there is more to this case than just the info that has been made public and that a final verdict hasn't been reached (I believe Alcon has said repeatedly that this was stopgap measure).  That said, it also sounds like (from the bits of info that are public) there is at least some legitimate evidence that Griffin knew what Tweed was doing and didn't tell anyone, may've somehow tried to cover up or have been dishonest about his role in the modleaks stuff, and was willing to help Tweed set up that website.  

Ultimately, the community (myself included) just don't know enough of the information and evidence to make some snap judgement here, whether it be that Griffin deserved to be banned or that he didn't deserve to be banned.  There are clearly important details that we don't know yet.  Waiting for Dave and the mods to get around to carefully debating this case doesn't feel as good emotionally as taking a side and making definitive or belligerent statements, but upon further reflection, reserving judgement until we know more of the facts is really the best thing the community at-large can do in Griffin's case even if for no other reason than we simply don't know enough to do anything else at this point.

I nominate Talleyrand for party leader (he seems to basically be taking on that role already and is an PM in the provisional parliament).

Biggest dividing issue for us could be trade barriers, would we support NAFTA type deals?

I'd say yes - support for free trade seems pretty definitional for a liberal party.

I tend to agree with SJoyce on this.

Interesting. My gut feeling tells me that one of Johnson and Kirk will survive. For the moment I think it will be Kirk.

Kirk is finished, and Johnson is well on his way. I think by the end of this, they both lose by double digits.

Okay, seriously? I agree Duckworth is the favorite, but Kirk isn't like Terri Lynn Land (completely inept) or Bill Brady (tea party). This is going to be competitive.

Not really...

I hope this serves as a wakeup call to him.  Next time the consequences could be more dire.
You just joined, what?  Yesterday?

Some people are quick learners. Maybe he's like me and has lots of time on his hands to browse internet political forums. You should try not to patronize new members.

Or...maybe he's just saying cliched talking points that sound cool to him and really knows nothing. Could be that, too.

I wasn't patronizing a new member, I was patronizing a sock.
