  1. Nothing but self-righteous sycophants continuing to to try to rule a wasteland of a planet. I do miss some of you though. Only some.
  2. This is a prime example of the game taking things for granted. Despite our limited contact over the years, sir, I want you to know, beyond the shadow of any doubt, that I appreciate all you ever did for this community. If the game had more you, it would have less blah. Enjoy your respite, you have earned it.
  3. Just out of curiosity, does this include your alliance?
  4. A combination of old age and going back to work at a real job.

    Rush, was this you?

    This assault on my character will not go unpunished. Also, I have an alibi for that night.

    The 'C' word

    Things like this transcend the game. I wish you a speedy recover my old fri....nemesis.
  7. CN is a little less !@#$%* with you back. Also, I personally am very proud of the changes you have made, it has been my privilege to be close enough to watch the changes.

  9. This is why I always led TLR with a willingness to hit allies of allies once committed to a coallition... it does not enable the other side to play use my allies on either side to play treaty chess.
  10. I know why. It was pretty much the same leadership that the lazy "A Declaration on one is a declaration on all" BS came from.
  11. That is pretty much the par-for-the-course NO U reposnse I would expect. The Rush who is not in gov, is vastly different from the one who was in gov. It is okay for you all to forget that, I do not mind. The freedom that retirement has given me (freedom from the bonds of having to worry about how my words would effect our sphere, or our ally's tertiary spheres) allows me to be much more of a straight shooter than I ever was. It does not mean I forget how gov should act. It has become quite important to your little sphere of friends to paint me as some stark raving lunatic. A lot of effort for a guy who does not mean much, no? There are differences between opinion and fact. This entire blog and every comment around it is about my opinion. There are enough people who really know me, though. Who know that I do not arrive at willy-nilly opinions, they are shaped by real discourse, real words and real actions. As such, for you to comment on my opinion about Marx vs my opinion on NG, is akin to a blind man telling me what color tie I should wear. You have no idea my interactions with both entities in question, but you are quick to assume that it is unimportant. In a nutshell... that kind of attitude is what is wrong with your silly little alliance.
  12. I read and read and read the words you write, and I wonder , how with so many bright individuals in GOONS, that they looked around them and said "We want this guy in gov." You a) know nothing b) understand less and c) are an absolute embarrassment to years of GOONS history. It is too bad they do not realize it for themselves.
  13. If TOP as a whole was more like you, and lost some of the inherent arrogance they treated so many with between the run-up to the last war and now, they might not be in this position.
  14. It also does not address the point that Mi6's smugness and talking down to literally everyone, created a reality where nobody wanted to be anywhere near them (save those who had already snuggled up to them), and this desire to be nowhere near Mi6, shut down EVERY FA option that TOP and friends tried to exploit. But hey, at least the members of Mi6 got to try to land zingers in every post.
  15. Translated : we failed to be kings rather than kingmakers.
  16. Stop trying to make me play the game seriously again! I AM A LULZIST!
  17. It is like you are intentionally ignoring the point. I would invite you to go ask around among those not in the Platysphere... and even among some of those in XX sphere what exactly it is they think about your alliance... and why. You talk down to literally everyone. And let us be honest, you blatantly and smugly point out "poaching" members (I really hate the poaching argument, but lets be flipping honest, LOTS OF ALLIANCES CARE ABOUT IT.) It is like it never ever occurred to you, or to any of your poached members, that you should probably STFU about poaching and let it go away, rather than embracing it and using every last opportunity to remind specific alliances of your successful wresting away of their members(this will shock you Myth, but when you remind ONE alliance of a poached member, you have reminded all of them.) Then for others, it is that you act like you have single handedly conquered the world, when you have done (are you ready for this...) NOTHING. It is why I repeat to earn your smug before you flaunt your smug. Your alliance, to be COMPLETELY blunt, is trying VERY hard to be the new MK, only you have not one iota of personality, not one strong figure who can be looked at with a wide degree of respect from nearly everyone. These opinions are not mine, they are COMMON among a large portion of the planet. This will fall totally on deaf ears because your entire alliance is made up of members with a sole purpose being to "land that zinger on anyone who doesnt like us." There is a time to shut up , put your head down and change a rotten image, instead you choose to believe the image is made up, and ignore what is so plainly obvious to so many people. I will await your reply with the aforementioned zinger about TLR inactivity,. Rush and pink elephants, or Rush thinks he know everything from 2 year old Skype calls. The reasons for the almost universal disdain of your alliance are many. I am personally quite happy that you choose to believe the reasons are none.
  18. By all means shnookums, continue to think your alliance is well received and not a hindrance to your allies.
  19. You can do it any time you want sweetiecakes. By all means, do not address the points, address my actions. This is why you remain toxic. "What, us? No we are grand."
  20. I called your alliance out simply for what it is... a smug alliance that has done 0 to earn its smug. You flaunt your smug to everyone. You ARE the reason nobody would give TOP-Polar the time of day, and you do not even realize it, but ask around... you will find out that you were just too busy being fabulous to recognize the damage you were doing. Congrats on being kings and not kingmakers.
  21. So you are saying STILL that nobody in your coalition gave one iota of thought to "perspective vs reality"... Lets be clear, I do not believe you. I do no believe you based on conversations I had mid-war with VIPs on all fronts. But lets say you are right... your entire leadership was filled with morons if you are right. TOP (pun intended) to bottom, your coalition was filled with idiots for leaders (if you are right)... Either way.. if I am right, or if you are right, you deserve to be right where you are, either through duplicity or incompetence.
  22. Seriously... your coalition did... or it allowed people to... take EVERY single shot that could possibly be taken at IRON. TLR defending an IRON ally? We will ask IRON to hit them. Seriously.. did NOBODY think there would be fallout? We(TLR) did not even NEED the coverage. If ANYONE in your coalition were looking out for IRON, they would not have been asked to make that DoW. An IRON ally SQUARELY in the Platysphere (VE) signs an eleventh hour ODP with LoSS just to let LoSS take a potshot at NG(another IRON ally).. and not one Einstein in your coalition said "umm, maybe we should not prod IRON so openly." Your Coalition was working 2 angles. Accomplishing the task at hand, and setting up IRON for post-war isolation. If you deny that this was be design, you insult the intelligence of every living , breathing ruler on Planet Bob that has 2 brain cells to rub together. These were no "unfortunate sets of circumstances"... they were moves that were NOT needed , they lent not one iota of ease to your coalition victory... they had but ONE point. The miscalculation that everyone would cut IRON loose is why you guys are where you are now. Now you will reply to this, and be a good soldier and say "There was no design at work here, we were just locked into a series of unfortunate events." Fortunately, most of us here play CN and not Lemony Snicketts. Even IF you were miraculously right... and it was a series of unfortunate events... SOMEONE in your coalition should have taken the reigns and realized that perception would STILL trump reality, and the coalition leadership takes the blame for the missteps (see NPO in EQ) , and if we let this nonsense happen, nobody will touch us post-war because nobody will trust us. Well guess what? Nobody would touch you post-war, because nobody trusted you. For people who were SUPPOSED to be so smart, you failed at basic understanding 101 (your coalition leadership), because you either a) it was a setup or b) TOP-Polar leadership was 100% grossly incompetent.
  23. Pretty much this. The coalition ABSOLUTELY, 100% betrayed IRON 1st. This is not in dispute, and if you dispute it, you are just trying too hard to be a good soldier.
