  1. You apparently can't receive messages. Can you fix that so that I can PM you, please?

    1. Schattenmann


      I've cleared out some space.

  2. In his Descent of Man (where he finally applied evolution to humans after punting for a decade) Darwin stated that man would not achieve his full potential until society removed its backwards prohibitions on "consanguineous"—incestuous—reproduction.
  3. OsRavan has never liked the disinfectant effect of the sunlight of the OWF. He finds his rot shrinks in the open air, so he insults all OWF readers and participants as idiots and charlatans incapable of telling truth from lie or of having minds open or intelligent enough to be changed. I'd do the same thing, too, if I were such a skulking conspirator.
  4. Note for everyone else: No treaty signed by Schattenmann ever stipulated the withdrawal of agents.
  5. If I were younger, I'd run a[nother] manchurian candidate for ODN Senate and post the convos. If you mean to imply that OsRavan was reluctant about supporting allies' reps demands, I'm happy to report that I sat through peace talks of a few wars with ODN, you weren't there, Os was, and he was a very eager beaver to negotiate for reps on your allies' behalf. This reporter has also demonstrated that OsRavan was more hawkish than the Senate, refusing the majority's calls to simply accept surrender when offered, instead insisting on lulz terms and fake apologies. This is what's funny about detractors who simply must reduce this to an ad hom battle between me and Os. There is no conflation between OsRavan and ODN; OsRavan was SecGen for 3 yrs 8 mos between May 2010- Jan 2014, an additional 6 months May-Jul 2014 and Jul-Oct 2015. No one has led ODN longer, and I don't think anyone has even led any other alliance longer. There is no conflation, there is the reality that OsRavan was ODN's head of state for over 4 years, with voter participation under 15% and generally no serious opponents for the position, backed by a Senate that abdicated its role in within the ODN system. I would make comparisons like Emperor Charles and NADC, but the fact is that OsRavan is singular in the modern context; I'd have to go back so far to make comparisons that no one would know who I was talking about. And that's the point. There is no separating ODN's actions from OsRavan's personage.
  6. Os is of course correct when he states that he was "not in charge" of ODN when ODN supported $625,000,000 in reps from NATO to GOONS. But like any good liar, with years of practice in nimble-tonguery, he neglected to say he was in charge of the military that enforced those reps. And he was so not bothered by leading ODN's military in those efforts that he accepted re-appointment to the position mid-war. His years-long run as Secretary General began that May, where he continued ODN's practice of enforcing reps demands from allies and confederates like GOONS and MK, which was at that time actively attempting to destroy alliances by overwhelming curbstomps and reps demands—a strategy they named "Creative Annihilation" as self-styled gods and guardians of the course of the game. OsRavan truly is a foul fiend, a central figure in the power politics that defined the sadistic destruction of thousands of nations across years. He is a phony with a sickly-sweet grin, a pretender who speaks in public of "what is best" for the world, and his so-called principles who in fact gleefully supported and created the conditions for the opposite of every stance he claims to hold. In fact, I had so much fun apologizing for spying on ODN and threatening your protectorates and applicants that I did it over and over again. The problem was the $200,000,000 in reps that you demanded we pay to GOONS in return for peace, because far from being opposed to anything, you were eager to enforce GOONS's demands upon us just as you were throughout your career and will be again in the future, given the chance.
  7. Good afternoon, I'm Schattenmann, your humble fact-checker for this mini-presentation of Os's World, your number one source for news from that land beyond the clouds, that happy land somewhere over the rainbow where the sky is green, the sun is purple, and trees grow down. Today, we visit that wonderful land again, beckoned by the claims of His Backwardness that: To do homage to the man, I say : :::::::chortle:::::: : Opposition is Action Let us first channel that biggest jerkwad of philosophy, the man who gave us pedantry, Socrates, and ask first: what is it to "oppose"? This is a word which implies action, oppose is a verb, it is not a passive state, but affirmative. We understand that to oppose something means to stand in its way. If a man opposes something, he acts to stop it. If a man is opposed to something, he moves to separate himself from it. We can greater understand this concept of opposition by considering its opposite, support. Support, too, is an action. Support enables things. A treaty is support, war is support, diplomatic pressure is support. Opposition is powerful. If rulers and alliances took stock of their ideals, and stood upon them, the world would shudder. Truth is Found in Action Now, let us examine OsRavan's record of opposition to reparations, eternal wars, etc. For it is in a man's action that we find the truth. In his perverted part in a perverted play, he directed the forces of ODN in enforcement of peace terms in the DH-NPO War which included $2.427 Billion in reparations ($1B from Legion alone), and a month long extended war against the top tier of Pacifica. In the Dave War, ODN itself demanded an extended war of top-tier MCXA nations. In the TOP-C&G War, ODN stood shoulder-to-shoulder with its allies and coalition in demands for reps totaling over $1 Billion and tens-of-thousands of tech (most of it blood money to GOONS), and 40,000 tech from Legion. It is most often the case that when we discuss the historical sins of an alliance, we must be careful to remember that their sins have been across multiple administrations, and that distance makes for penance. Not so with ODN and OsRavan. OsRavan himself led the Network in each of these wars and always unfalteringly waved the banner of his bloodthirsty allies. OsRavan Found False Os's World is a weird place, indeed. It is a world where a man finds it perfectly sane to decry every kind of injustice who has himself committed his personal influence, and the military might of his alliance to the extraction of outrageous reps; who has himself accepted reps; who has put the weight of his alliance behind the acts he himself decries over and over again, enthusiastically. Why must we continue to examine OsRavan? OsRavan breathes rarefied air as one of very few men whose person came to define an AA and in many ways an era. His person is political, to discuss the person of OsRavan is to discuss ODN. Where OsRavan lies, the truth must be brought forth. This is no petty personal squabble, but a question of the state of things. As long as twisted manipulators such as OsRavan are allowed to spew their backwards histories, alliances will continue to emulate them. History is the sum of actions of men, OsRavan's opposition could have meant an entirely different world, but despite his repetitive cries that his principles give no regard to politics, we see that he has no principles, and he perpetuated a world without principle. So, my dear reader, on this, the 1,752nd day since OsRavan forced reparations from Cult of Justitia, and the 1,751st day since he began denying it, I'm your host Schattenmann bidding you good day from all of us in Os's World.

  8. You still owe me lunch after a drum-and-fife viewing.
  9. I am kind of laughing at the suggestion that the staff uses lyricalz rather than, you know, their own access system to the actual game.
  10. Overdue and greatly appreciated. Gnashing of teeth in 3, 2, . . .
  11. The old divisions don't mean as much toward the end. I haven't made a VE swipe in almost 3 years
  12. Hitchcock, we're having one of the first serious discussions here in like 6 months, so could you kindly keep your pissant infra flexing ad hominems out of it?
  13. ODN elects OsRavan for 70 years straight. The game isn't dying because the OWF is dead, the OWF is dead because everyone uses Skype to mention the game in between fart jokes and stories about their fake sex lives and real mental disorders, rather than using the OWF. Both make the game boring as hell. Anyone who tries to play seriously (actual risks, not derpa-doo wet's be fwiends wiv 100 tweaties, durrr I'm here for the community not the game) does indeed get pilloried, isolated, and kept in a dusty corner until time to roll them or draw in their NS for a few minutes. The OWF and game are dead because there is no ideology or actual politics. This is a serious question, Steve, what are we supposed to argue over if none of your alliances have any angle on gameplay? There isn't one alliance with a defining, differentiating ideology. No one does anything for any reason, they have no way to argue about it or defend it beyond RETARDED "friends" pap or equally stupid wishy-washy lobotomized crap about "honor." Not even NPO gives a single rip about Francoism, they're just a tub of NS like every other alliance. The game thrived in large part because of numbers, but its decline is due to the loss of politics. This is a geo-political simulator that you and your buddies turned into a geo-friendship simulator, forging fake friendships to make the biggest gang to go alliance raiding. MK and GOONS, and their allies like your moronic AA, made the fatal mistake of believing, erroneously, that the game needed a bad guy, so they just went around pissing people off and being bad, with pseudo-intellectuals like Azaghul and Londo spouting the most idiotic crap about saving the game by generating bad feelings and what they called activity. At the same time they spent years ripping down every political aspect of the game, they held their enemies to the old standards. You were wrong, here we are. All politics is dead, the game is useless. The way to vibrant gameplay is politics.
