GOONs nearly faced the consequences


SirWilliam

Note: I'm shamelessly ripping off and slightly rebranding the Carlos Accords' "Derp of the Day" award to present one individual with the "Herp De Derp Award".

While I should note that The Legion (their MoD specifically) ultimately ended up handling this situation a bit more intelligently than this entry's recipient, a few of the latter gentleman's comments nonetheless warrant this recognition.

For a bit of context, a ghost flying The Legion AA - a ghost as confirmed by The Legion on IRC - attacked a member of ours (GOONs). Upon confirmation of his non-member status he was GOONrushed, at which point KingShibby, one of the attackers, received the following gems (emphasis added):

To: KingShibby From: TheManWithoutAPlan Date: 5/25/2011 6:47:14 PM

Subject: STOP YOUR WAR

Message: Hello!

We see that you are engaging a Legion Member. The Legion formally made peace with you on 5/2/2011. Please stop all wars! We have messaged our Legion member to stop theirs, so we ask you to stop yours,

or face the consequences.

Subject: RE: STOP YOUR WAR

Message: You should've come to us for confirmation, and he would be almost immediately expelled, the fact that you did not tell anyone of this, especially either of our governments, puts you in a violation of our Peace orders and CAN nullify it if it goes on, If you have not sent peace within the next update, it will be far worse.

And yes, he is a member.

TheManWithoutAPlan

Lets ignore the fact that he was incorrect about their alliance not having been contacted, and that he was incorrect about the nation in question being a member, and focus instead on the fact that he felt confident enough in his alliance's abilities to threaten us, over a nation that rogued GOONs no less. What would they do, jump to peace mode?

To: KingShibby From: TheManWithoutAPlan Date: 5/25/2011 7:38:33 PM

Subject: Nevermind

Message: Sorry about this, infact he is no longer a Legion member, he was a ghost.

Sorry again for the mistake. Peace out please, the attack still violates our treaty.

His fessing up is slightly redeeming, but it should be pretty clear that this is why you shouldn't be so quick to jump to conclusions and thump your chest. It should also be pretty clear that attacking a ghost that has attacked your alliance does not violate peace terms.

TheManWithoutAPlan, I do hope you've learned something from this.

Never !@#$%* about private channels ever again, please

I normally don't, but given the content here I really couldn't resist.

"Herp de derp Award"? Really? You can do better than that, Sir William.

No, I really can't. !@#$%* about the content like Lord GVChamp, not about the name you putz.

This blog is dumb. You are dumb. Why is this here. Go away.

Seriously, are you that starved for PR that you have to paste the private musings you had with some base member nobody has ever heard of in an alliance you don't like? This is beyond dumb and you should feel bad about it.

So many times i wanted to tell you the same.

but i thought that being you and having to deal with that on a daily basis is bad enough punishment.

Yeah, that about sums up my thoughts.

This is what happens when people have a stupid amount of military staff who've got no idea what they're doing.

They have a point. Who the hell do you think you are? Don't you realise you need a micro-AA and an unmerited sense of self-worth to write these types of things up?

That's all well and good but I'm not exactly in a micro and have never wrote a blog.

What the $%&@ is a Deputy Centurion anyway? It's not even listed on Legion's wiki. Just looks like someone speaking well above their pay grade, which I why I thought the blog was pointless.

Perhaps you two could put aside, just for a moment, the fact that we're on opposing sides of the treaty web and ignore those agendas of yours, long enough to realize this isn't about PR or about making some grand ol' point. I thought the situation was ridiculous and humorous enough to share with outsiders, for your entertainment, so this is the end result. Capiche?

You want a cookie? Go fart up someone else's blog. HoT already has this one covered.

Are you trying to say "capisce"? Well, don't....it hurts my ears when you do it.

I do have wind today, I can't believe it managed to find it's way into my posts though.

If you seriously think stuff on SW's blog is an ~official PR move~ then you are beyond dumb. But I like how you went right for the jab to avoid commenting on topic (acknowledging that Legion are tools).

I love that we anger zero so much that he reads our blogs and has tantrums in their pages.

Never change, hero. Not that you could, but never try.

Nearly isn't good enough these days, but you guys will face the consequences for your actions someday. Seeing how long you guys can put it off is interesting though.

Really meth? Really?

Are you, of all people, going to jump on then "you will get your's" bandwagon?

Who is going to bail your mouth out next time? Do you have a predefined list of names you can submit to us so next time you bite off more than you can chew we just start at the top of the list and work our way to someone who is willing to pay your rep bill?

Keep wishing upon those stars, Methrage, as long as you realize that if and when we face the consequences (for what actions who knows) it won't be because of you or anything you've done.
