Posting in the only manner Grub taught me...the enumerated list!
1. The Emperor is the final word for the New Polar Order, he was in #stratego and he didn't agree to jack.
2. We never said "NpO is in" or replied to the list posted in the channel in which someone presumed we were "in". If someone wanted to assume we were "in" the hypothetical war because we would defend our ally then I guess that's a reasonable assumption to make, but that doesn't mean we agreed or subscribed to any particular plan or that we would be taking orders from or following the lead of any other alliance, especially not an unconnected band-wagoner or forum troll.
3. We made it clear we would not be a part of any "fairy tale" as the logs below which may or may not already be public show:
Note: The "legit CB" I was referring to there was a GOONS member conducting the fourth raid in recent times against a legitimate UPN member who had more than 100 days on the United Purple Nations AA. It had nothing to do with the UOKMB drama. At the time, $1,000,001 in aid had been sent to the UPN member from GOONS without the consent of UPN government which we believed had been sent in order to trick the UPN member into accepting a peace offer. Now in my opinion it was an affront to an alliance's sovereignty to bypass their leadership and disrespectful to raid and send reps so low as to retain profitability in the raid. Furthermore it was my feeling that there are only so many mistakes you should tolerate before you defend your membership against raids as is your right. Evidently ODN thought differently and negotiated higher reps for UPN from GOONS for this incident and it is resolved. Diplomacy won and everyone is happy.
Now you can debate the strength of that as a legitimate cause for war (it was only my personal opinion at the time that 'enough is enough'), but the point of this post is that we never supported the "honeypot" scheme or other concocted plots morons like HerooTime55 were spamming in #stratego that day. Neither did STA (their name was bandied about as possible protectors...lol).
Thanks for reading, I will endeavor to answer any sensible questions.
