Wow, you're a bad troll. You talk about so-called evidence and conveniently forget to mention all the facts that brought us to this point.
NEW decided to pick a fight with one of our other allies (FARK). Maybe some mistakes were made, but mistakes can be fixed, so everyone tried to resolve the situation. NEW wasn't interested in solving it and wanted to fight, so two of our allies went to war. From there, it was a lose-lose situation. Any decision would've been ridiculed by one side of the web and probably some on the OWF would've ridiculed it either way, just because they like to troll.
We then tried to contain the situation and make sure no other parties would enter this war. According to NEW, they told FEAR and WFF to stay out too. But I'm not surprised they went in anyway...what do they have to lose? They don't have to fight other allies. It looks like you forgot to mention that scenario, btw.
I'm not e-lawyering my way out of this and wouldn't use the 'not activating the oA-clause' as an excuse. We love NEW but we also feel they've put us in an impossible position. We're not prepared to fight (and lose) our own friends, just because NEW feels like attacking one of their old enemies. You can say that it makes us bad allies, but most people would've said the same thing if we had ignored our allies on the other side. Like I said, a lose-lose situation.
