For about the fourth time since 9:15 this morning I've read "we have never imposed viceroys" or "you can't talk, you used viceroys."
For visual effect, I quote Azaghul, but he's not alone, he just happens to be the random 7th person to say it:
Our "hegemony" allows for far more dissent. People don't fear that we will kick in their door if one of their members criticizes us, like in the past. We don't EZI anyone for opposing us. We don't impose viceroys or forced disbandments.
clap . . . clap . . . clap.
Anyone who finds themselves thinking along these lines, or finds themselves nodding their head at this argument: Please grow a brain.
Anyone that is using this line, please shut the Hell up.
Admin updated the rules to the inclusion of this line more than 2 years ago:
(bold mine)2. Cyber Nations is a free online nation simulation game that is intended to be a fun place to try your hand at ruling a simulated nation. The nations are not real, the money that your nation earns is not real, the politics, the wars, the religions, none of it is real. What is real are the players of Cyber Nations. By using this service you agree not to use rude, inappropriate, threatening, harassing, malicious, defamatory, or obscene comments, messages, ruler names, nation names or bios or any other such offensive or harmful content. Users agree to not engage in extortion of real life possessions of other players in response to in-game situations or vice versa. Impersonating any of the Cyber Nations staff may result in the player's immediate ban. Moderator Harassment will not be tolerated in this game.
Before you ever pulled it out of the fire and got your act together to win dominance, Admin yanked the opportunity to use viceroys out from under your feet. You have never used viceroys because you have never been in a position to use them.
The GATO Viceroy was the last viceroy not because of any moral compunctions on the part of any dominant alliance in the past 2 years, it is due to the foresight of Admin.
May Admin take credit for your virtue, for you have none.
