What Haflinger/MVP/Alterego just don't get

I'm only doing this because it's so painful to see them flailing around desperate to score a hit against MK. Listen up, guys: You need credibility. And if you keep complaining about MK's every mundane action, you're going to lose what little credibility you hold on the OWF, not gain it. If you accuse the other side of 'bawwwing' when they're simply debating an issue you're going to lose credibility, not gain it. If you're going to make a callout thread, make damn sure you have all your !@#$ lined up. Make sure you talk to both sides and find out what's really going on and if it's acceptable or not. THEN post.

Granted, this will mean that you won't get to criticize MK or GOONS or RoK nearly as much. But at least when you do, people might not laugh it off as soon as they see your name besides the post. That is, if your reputation hasn't been permanently crippled.

Learn what credibility is and how to gain some or you'll continue to be a laughingstock.

I am Rebel Virginia. You forgot to mention Rebel Virginia. Everyone wants more Rebel Virginia.

You're actually better than us. So you would get your own blog post exonerating you more, or something I dunno apparently Penkala feels he's fit to pass judgment.

And I don't agree, I believe in Jesus.

Penkala is right, but please continue to not believe him. It benefits us greatly that you carry on doing what you do.

Apparently if you kiss someone's ass well enough they'll become your friend. So touching.

Penkala, I think we all appreciate your magnanimous attempt to point out what you believe to be the issue with the opposition posting. However, you're speaking to the wrong people. Just as you would never ever be considered a credible opposition figure, it is also the case that the opposition leaders you want to see will likely be of a different mold. When you're making your comparison and dishing out advice, consider that Archon was the voice of karma, not PenLOLa. Who are possible comparisons to that role? People like RandomInterupt, Pezstar, or some of Pacifica's IOs, not Haf, Alterego, and The MVP. This is not to disparage those individuals, everyone plays their role, but it is simply to demonstrate the implicit error in your logic.

I don't understand. I never claimed to be the 'voice of Karma', though I am the official voice of the SuperFriends! bloc. I find you listing Pezstar in the same core group as Archon to be pretty laughable, though. Thanks for that.

ITT Penkala accuses others of lacking credibility.

There's a large difference between what I do and what Alterego/Aut do. If you can't see that difference, then you're blind.

@MVP, This is not something that would cause me to lose credibility and look like an idiot. This is. Do you see my point yet? Here's how you do it: Talk to both sides, figure out if something's really a big deal, figure out if it's going to be resolved or not (if it IS, there is usually no use in making the thread), THEN make a post about it. Here's how not to do it: See a chance to try and make MK look bad, POST ASAP! MK resolved that issue and made you look even more foolish. Before I made that Athens post I queried JGoods and confirmed it was an organized raid, and no reps would be paid. An unresolved, real issue. THEN I posted.

God, I can't believe I had to spell this out for you.

@MVP: Another tip: Stop using big words if you don't understand them.

exonerating -- present participle of ex·on·er·ate (Verb)

1. (esp. of an official body) Absolve (someone) from blame for a fault or wrongdoing, esp. after due consideration of the case.

2. Release someone from (a duty or obligation).

PenkLOLa, heroically defending the strong since 2009.

You do realize I was on the Karma side before the war started, knew it was going to happen, at a couple points I was almost certain we would lose, yet I stuck with it, right? But yes, defending the strong is what I've always done. Good call.

At least you'd like to think so. When are you going to rogue VA like a five year old again, or imposter another alliance's gov on IRC?

Dear Penkala,

If irony hurt, you'd be screaming in agony.

Sincerely,

kingzog

Seriously, complete nonsense; the child tries too hard.

I made that thread in the hopes to get people discussing the issue because the other thread got delete due to it being a "joke thread". I wasn't going to wait for an official announcement when I could just post it then.

Btw, remember this? That had you shook for awhile even making !@#$ up like you having a hand in Carthage's disbandment or forcing me to quit the game. Apparently you running away from a fight psychologically devastated me.

And maybe you're not 12 years old.

Maybe, maybe...

I look for every opportunity to criticize MK? :rolleyes:

Here's a summary of my recent posts concerning MK.

---

Actually, one of our former MoFAs is a member of the Mushroom Kingdom now.

---

You could just apply to NAC; as far as I know, MK's only gonna ZI you once.

---

So this is the best drama MK can come up with?

"NPO deleted some posts of our diplomats on their forums, so now we're closing their embassy."

Man. Grow up.

---

So, 15 mil and 250 tech is too high for having a former member drop a trade, but 12 mil and 200 tech is just right for publicizing your misdeeds?

Right.

---

15M and 250 tech in reps for a 3M aid thief who NSO isn't protecting?

Oh man.

---

Don't really care about RoK either. GOONS have been more abusive, but they're getting better, as the KN peace terms show.

Everyone knew the sides in the weeks leading up to the war and what would become Karma had a greater NS until the week of the war when it swung massively (2:1) in your favour. Until the swing it was assumed we could take a slightly larger force with better organisation. Once the swing happened before the war it was game set and match to Karma without a shot being fired. There was only one day of the war when the NS of what would become Karma was smaller than the opposition, the 1st day. By day 4 it was 222m v 129m. Congrats on sticking with it through that 1st day when, unless Im mistaken you werent even at war.
