  1. I am putting Agent Gibsonator on burn notice, he has been ex-communicated from Her Majesty's Secret Intelligence Service.
  2. I thought Pacifica cleansed this world of trash. Guess we’ll have to do our part to save the environment as well.
  3. A long time ago, several adventures entered the land we know as Planet Bob. They all took their own paths and found legend and loot a plenty. As fate would have it, these adventurers would find themselves in a bar known as Secret Bar Funtime. There, they regaled each other of the paths they had beaten, the monsters they had slain, and the maidens they had bedded. After a great deal of mead had been consumed, there was a call from within the group to form a party. Each of these adventurers, who had walked their own paths, decided to party up and travel the same road. Thus, they rolled for initiative. On a personal note, I'd like to thank all of the governments that came together to make this bloc a reality.

    The 'C' word

    Thinking about, and praying for you Dajobo.
  5. This is an awesome account of Bukowski, I had the pleasure of reading a good amount of his works, and can say that while he was probably a drunk, he was quite brilliant.
  6. The Genius of the Crowd: By Charles Bukowski There is enough treachery hatred violence absurdity in the average human being to supply any given army on any given day and the best at murder are those who preach against it and the best at hate are those who preach love and the best at war finally are those who preach peace those who preach god, need god those who preach peace do not have peace those who preach peace do not have love beware the preachers beware the knowers beware those who are always reading books beware those who either detest poverty or are proud of it beware those quick to praise for they need praise in return beware those who are quick to censor they are afraid of what they do not know beware those who seek constant crowds for they are nothing alone beware the average man the average woman beware their love, their love is average seeks average but there is genius in their hatred there is enough genius in their hatred to kill you to kill anybody not wanting solitude not understanding solitude they will attempt to destroy anything that differs from their own not being able to create art they will not understand art they will consider their failure as creators only as a failure of the world not being able to love fully they will believe your love incomplete and then they will hate you and their hatred will be perfect like a shining diamond like a knife like a mountain like a tiger like hemlock their finest art Fin This poem, one that I had read some time ago, really spoke to me on the nature of CN. Take it for what it is, and interpret it's meaning with regards to CN as much as you like, just figured i'd share.
  7. CN after Westphalia, we live in a global world, where alliances are co-dependent on each other, this means that sometimes sovereignty is forsaken in order to protect themselves.
  8. Who's blaming anyone? CN politics are cicular, at some point the losing coalition will become the victorious coalition. The only real way to lose in CN is to not play.
  9. No, I read your piece, as I do with all blogs that I comment on. It just didn't have an original thought in it.
  10. tl;dr: Those not in my coalition are !@#$%* because i'm a tool that can't ever parrot anything but the party line.
  11. I don't think anyone would treat mass-messaging campaigns as anything besides harassment and violation of an alliance's sovreignty. At the end of the day, we live in a global cyberverse, where members are encouraged to make connections and friends with people outside of their AA. Since this is the case, it is only natural for people who are friendly to want to share membership in one alliance. The question then becomes, is it a violation if two people who are friendly to try to recruit one another to each other's alliances?
  12. I don't think anyone has ever done that on an alliance-wide level. RV used to message some people on other AA's, but he was the only person I remember really doing it. The more interesting thing to consider is what MI6 does, in that we befriend people from around the cyberverse, tout our achievements, and let these members realize how great we are, and then end up joining us. Is it an act against alliance sovereignty? Perhaps, I think you could make a strong argument that it is. But is it not also against an alliance's sovereignty to tell them who they can and cannot recruit?
  13. You do give up some rights when joining alliance, but you never give up the right to self-determination. This is a CN ethical norm, most of us have believed for a long time that poaching is something we shouldn't do. That being said, there is certainly a history of many of the greats of this game breaking CN norms, and so we have to be prepared for certain ways this game may trend to. The real question here is, if a poached member really dislikes or thinks so little of their current alliance, perhaps it wasn't the right alliance for them to begin with. The real question this poses is on alliance sovereignty. Is a poacher violating an alliances sovereignty? Is alliance sovereignty even worthy anything in CN?
  14. I appreciate all the feedback, I'll post the updated piece as soon as I get done re-doing it.
  15. I wrote a short piece, I was thinking of submitting it to my college's literary magazine. I wanted to get some feedback on it before I submit it, though. So tell me, is it interesting ,is it !@#$, is it worth submitting? I appreciate any feedback. Regards, W
