I for one am glad to have entered into "big politics" on freedom of speech issue and will defend my stance on this. Lol liking a post on the internet is grounds for banning my speech, it´s virtual equivalent of sewing my mouth shut and cutting of me hands so I could not write too for I liking something in the real world. Also GPA has had really free attitude and culture from the start about freedom of speech to such a huge extent opsec and public image have had problems because of it. Also some members have gotten us rolled for it. It will never change, TCW will not silence it´s members for jokes ever, there has to be real and grand reasons for doing so, and Prime-minister can get impeached rather fast for playing fast and loose with those sections of TCW/GPA culture.
On flaking my loans, lol, I have loans?
Sphinx is allowed to be critical of my actions all he wants, that doesn´t mean he has the power by the charter to silence members for jokes. DNA has been a joke from the start, I´ve called all prime ministers Socialist Overlords from the start, Drunken News Agency has talked rubbish about TCW allies always. There are even funding charter principles of DNA published years ago warning people about that and I republish them now and then if someone flips out. The 3 smile emoticons are there to remind and hint it´s a joke and the worst possible enemy spin on things I can imagine at any given time. I´m not responsible for people not knowing that, does that mean I should be silenced?
No ally that I know of till Col B has ever had a problem with my jokes before, even posted some rather nasty stuff about TKR in their own forums under the label DNA and those are still up there. Also no ally has ever come to me and applied any pressure to change my stuff in almost 5 years I´ve done DNA, neither have they totally ignored the source and went behind my back to !@#$ about me to my prime-minister. And all I did was to post pro GPA, coup culture, pro impeaching the Socialist Overlords, pro world peace stuff, in hopes of my jokes sparking an idea in some leaders about the perma-war being kind of boring and bad for the overall health of the game and the community. Also at the time at any point no ally made me aware of the fact that I did anything wrong, as I heard it after the fact and from Sphinx. IF you only knew with how many articles I´ve gone to Sphinx with and asked: "Can I post those or am I going too far?" and gotten a firm rock-hard NO on. And I´m sorry for putting my friends through having listen to people, who clearly lacked the spine to come complain to my face, instead complaining to me friends about me, so sorry for that Sphinx. Should I be banned and silenced for that?
I also know NPO culture somewhat, having been in it for years in another universe, so I can understand how restrain values take a back-seat for others in that fine community, although I do not understand how members of NPO community can blindly think all other communities are similar and can just constrain their member´s speech as NPO does. I´m not even laying a moral judgement on NPO for doing that, I can understand the value and limiting risks on FA and image by doing it, I just can not understand how they thing all or even only TCW should abandon their cultural past and copy NPO and just gag order our members like they are some lifeless, no rights or value having, not spiritual or self-expression seeking beings but machines following their doctrine or their programming with no questions asked - bots for a lack of better world. I just do not see how any alliance or community can be so narrow minded to truly think and believe everyone else is just like them and should act like em. Should I be silenced and banned for that ?
So I liked EM post, maybe I did so because I really liked the series, or maybe I was drunk or temporary insane, or maybe just over tired and grumpy. Doesn´t really matter why I liked it, their reaction to my one click, which could have very well been a mistake on my part, was not to seek wisdom or info by confronting the "perpetrator" (me) about it but to demand I be gagged and punished for it, which when done correctly I would find arousing, but in this case it was insulting, they didn´t even asked me to correct it but have held on to it like some jaded girlfriend with a mistake done ten years ago to throw it in my face in every argument I get into with her. Should I be banned and silenced for that?
IF anyone´s curiosity was peaked, and I doubt it, Drunken News Agency´s most propaganda pieces can be read on TCW discord and TKR forums. I´m really glad I have not been silenced and banned yet on those, even though been part of wrecking some TKR nations for better part of half the last year. Should I really be banned and silenced for that ?
