  1. I don't understand why everyone likes Flying Dog. It's kinda gross, IMO. Nice reviews, ol' chum.
  2. I don't see any amendment clause. This makes me sad.
  3. Hail Zenith! I miss you guys.
  4. Congrats to both parties. I like you both. I just wish you would've chosen something... tastier.
  5. Whatever my gut tells me is factual. Did you know? The stomach has more nerve endings than the brain.
  6. A. You know I prefer too long rather than too short. I think people who ask for "tl;dr" versions are lazy, although I don't mind providing a synopsis. B. I disagree.
  7. STA is founded by a nuclear rogue. Sorta.
  8. That is way too brief an explanation
  9. Skippy. In charge of people. For Admin's sake, run for cover!
  10. Actually, I'm not trying to paint him as a hypocrite. I'm trying to paint him as trying to engage in an idea that is half-baked at best. The problem with him not getting into specifics is that it gives him some leeway in interpretation - which can easily lead to hypocrisy - so people really like to see what he considers "bad" and what he considers "good" - specifics. Much more specific than the general categories that he presented in the OP. His original post states that he will declare war on alliances that commit one of the following: "[illegal] intervention," "hypocrisy," and "opportuni
  11. I knew that my point would fall on deaf ears. There are two forms of intervention, proactive and passive. Most people understand the proactive or reactionary kind of intervention. After someone has done something wrong (according to a party), that party then commences on whatever action they feel is appropriate to intervene. In this case, Jack does not like it when proactive intervention occurs when there is no legal basis for the action. It is the second kind of intervention that is often ignored. By Athens declaring that they will declare on anyone who tech raids Jack, they are essenti
  12. It is how most alliances act. However, it's also an imposition to an alliance about what they can and cannot do. Mind you, it's a stance that I completely agree with, but since it's inherently a form of passive moral interventionism (you can't raid my friends because I will hurt you because I value my friends), it also means that if I tech raid Jack, and Athens declares war on me, then Jack has to declare war on Athens.
  13. So... Tech raiding is fine, as long as you don't tech raid Athens or any of Athens' friends?
  14. Heh, I'm well aware of the limitations of my nation. I was only speaking hypothetically. So do you guys have something against common tech raids then?
