  1. More often than not, our policies have had to clash, but I’ve always held respect for the steadfastness with which players like Ogaden have conducted themselves with. May your ship always sail, even if you are to land on my shores. 
     

    Arrgh!

    Welcome back from wherever you've been, haven't seen you around much lately. Although you have been one of the better NPO posters. You came back at kind of an awkward time, seeing as NPO is trying to kill them or showing its worst side to them. If some in Coalition A seem unpleased its because they recently saw proof peace talks were meant to stall all along.

    TGH would probably be the among the worst off if everyone did individual peace, so kind of high stakes for him.:P

    Hi, I've been away attempting to regain control of the realm beyond the Great Server. I haven't attempted to dispute anything in his post, because I really don't believe it's my place. All I'm saying is, don't let insults detract from whatever point you're trying to make. If I remember correctly, an individual from the opposing coalition offered me similar advice a long time ago. They were right to point out what they did.

    There's plenty of evidence proving that you're pactbreaking liars, in every game you've ever played. And yes I am familiar with your 'many years of experience' of being utter shits, as I've even more years of experience fighting against lying hegemonist shits just like you.

    You’re really not doing yourself a favour here. Even if you’re trying to “win the rhetorical point”, the sheer amount of ad hom’s render your attempts distasteful for the reader. Consider taking a few steps back.

    and post better

    And for those who can’t, stop posting altogether. Or continue, everyone likes feeling better about themselves. Either works. 
     

    e: before everyone jumps like a shark on me, I’m really only here  because the terms are hilarious. I’m honestly waiting to see the next 6.

    ...probably suffering from anger management issues, too.

    Insofar as neutrality is concerned, I would say the correct argument to be made is to do with sustainability, and not invulnerability by virtue of preclusion from combat. A truly successful neutral alliance would work nonstop to make sure its safety net included actors from different corners and somehow maintain that bipartisan connection without being dragged into one part of the political spectrum needlessly. Even if you were to be hit, having friends in high places would allow you to maintain momentum to some degree or the other. 

    I personally would argue that true neutrality is ultimately meaningless given the subconscious effect apparent “friendships” have on decision making. People have long memories, and it would be a truly monumental undertaking to maintain such a clean record (on both the alliance and individual level) that you’d never attract predatory attention. 

    Also, hello. Haven’t posted properly in quite some time.

    I don't think you guys understand how much Frawley works, it's only through a sheer miracle of time management that he gets anything done at all for this game.

    What Alt said. I’ve been an inactive mess of a Pacifican but even I know just how much time he has to put in for his RL; hell, anyone who’s ever gotten the opportunity to know him will say the same. Here’s what’s truly impressive though: despite spending about twice as much time as most people working, he still manages to invest his time maintaining and improving the stats site. 
     

    But I mean, some people don’t change I suppose.

    Almost every NPO mouthpiece is at least decently good at avoiding gotcha posts. whether confirming your statement or denying it, one way or the other someone is going to use it against them later on. Especially if they can prove (Or have the patience to go digging all over these very forums) they did. And to them it's better to just let points they don't like or insignificant points to drop and not defend or attack them. Because they get lost in the fray of one line "wit" or WoT they and others type.

    I’m almost offended.
