Pure democracy is one of the worst ways to structure an alliance. Good luck - you're really going to need it.

guys, seriously, drop below the radar. Announce nothing at all. Consolidate your alliance away from the public eye, and only come out to play when your threads can get to 3 replies without someone mentioning the massive failure who used to be your leader.

Good job, you're bad for your alliance.

Yet.. I guess I've no room to talk.

Not really, it depends on how you view the difference between raiding and attacking.
