Ah yes, the great wise meta. Praise be the meta!
The only reason I'm even mentioning this is that we are treating it as if it's unchanging. The reality is there is a huge part of Alliance Leadership that wasn't involved in KF or even NPOLT, so trying to pretend that there is some standard we need to follow is absolutely ridiculous. Especially when it's tied to a history lesson that no one cares about.
If you want to argue the CB or Rose actions, than argue it but quit going back to the grandpa Simpson rants about yesteryear.
