The True Story of Emperor Marx



I have it in mind this glorious October afternoon to recall some particulars of history; particularly concerning the rise and rapid fall of \m/ 2.0's leader, Emperor Marx. I will recall only a brief section, mainly to do with his departure. I invite those with the required knowledge of history, who were involved in the occasion, or who had intimate knowledge of these events, please, share what you will.

You will recall there was a time a year or so back when the NPO was en-masse declared on. I and Marx, one evening, made the hilarious decision to join the fight against Pacifica without the rest of the governments consent (I don't even remember if we needed their consent or not, the charter was never really a strong document). I supported the decision, mainly out of a desire for vengeance.

All was going swimmingly until Marx, caving under forum pressure and various would-be allies mocking us for joining the conflict, admitted the following on our public IRC:

He'd never been a \m/ember. This is important to note because he'd rebuilt the AA based on the notion that he had been a \m/ember in our alliance before our defeat. In saying that he had been, he led under false premises and elaborated on his lies as convenient. During this, he had an emotional breakdown, which was an embarrassment, especially because of the public nature of the channel.

Furthermore, he fled the AA and ran to GOONS, where he resides to this day. He remains unrepentant about the whole affair and had the gall to dismiss it when I brought it up to him recently in IRC.

So there you go, Cyberverse; do with this information what you will. Someone please go ask Marx for his version of the story and repost it here; I could certainly use the laughs!

I was not around for the DH/NPO ordeal, but assuming the charter remain unchanged from BiPolar, all that was required was a majority trium approval. In fact, I wanting to say that it was entirely possible for a simple Trium Majority to make the charter its !@#$%*.

I am unable to take any grown person who watches a show about magical talking ponies for children seriously, so the feeling is mutual.


I can feel the heat from that burn

Let's be honest, you expected someone who lied to the rest of the AA to stay in \m/ ? Would be nice to know what the motivation for that was, but it is history.

Thanks for the revelation of Marx being human. I almost thought he was an alien.

You really need to get over yourself and the past. For reasons that are none of anybody's business, I had been inactive for the last few months that I was in \m/. I barely had any role in shaping policy or anything else related to CN. You morons wanted to attack NPO in a desperate ploy to join Doom House and went so far as to try to use what few friendly relationships I had maintained between us and DH alliances to facilitate it. If you're still unable to understand what would drive me to leave that garbage alliance in spite of nearly a year of the unrivaled effort I put in to try to make it work, then you're a miserable sack of !@#$ and if I were capable of it, I would pity you.

Who is "you morons"? I know I wasn't the most active back in the day, but we never once discussed warring against NPO in the gov chan when I was there and never once mentioned it seriously on the forums in the gov area. I logged in that night and found out by reading our DOW that we were at war with NPO. The decision that night was made with such quickness. I don't disagree that some in \m/ wanted to attack NPO, but I do not recall the gov ever speaking of "hey lets join in and roll NPO" until right after the DOW was posted.

To clarify, I wasn't necessarily apposed to war with NPO then, but we never once talked about as gov.

For my part I was tired of logging in and finding we did some policy that I don't remember anyone discussing on the forums or on irc and have to defend it like I knew wtf was going on.

Anyway, it happened. I was done with sweeping in and finding out things about my alliance from the OWF instead of from our gov forums.

That doesn't mean he was a member, it just means he had an account. I remember that night and he very clearly said he never was a \m/ember in OG \m/.
