Persona Non Grata Magnum Opus

Oh god, that brings back memories (as a spectator, mind you).

 

The beautiful part was the way everyone thought of them as some great, huge unknown. A lot of alliances were tied to them at one time or another.

 

And then they turned out to be the most inactive people ever.

 

The night they were attacked, we tried to find out what the hell was going on because my (then) alliance was allied to them. We waited the amount necessary to cancel our treaty before it dawned on us that they were never going to get back to us, so we considered our deal null.

 

It was weeks -- and I do mean weeks -- later that their great leader finally messaged us.

 

My weirdest experience in FA damage control. But there was literally nothing else to do. If they'd said all the spying charges were BS we would have been happy to fight. Instead, we got silence. It turned out to all be true, but we found out when everyone else did and after the mea culpa we got from Terry.

 

Got flak for sitting on my hands, but I wasn't about to push my face into a buzzsaw for someone who wouldn't even take my calls.

Yes, smash things! Go <checks thread title> oh....I only sort of know what's going on, honestly.

 

The world is stupid and awful. Sadly, given the sorry state of my nation all I can do is watch it burn.

 

Anyway, yes, smash things!

Terry Howard, lol.

Lol, Terry Howard.  I remember when he was a powerful voice/force on CN.  He hated me especially after accusing me of setting up Brothers of the Storm to ignite the Unjust War, saying that I coerced BoTS to needle Genmay into attacking them.  BoTS was White sphere, and Terry Howard had decided that he was responsible for the entire sphere. I assured Terry that it wasn't just me, but my Emperor, Electron Sponge who coerced the Brotherhood to needle Genmay into igniting that poweder keg. The rest is history... :)

If I had to mention only one individual with really an heavy and intimidating tone and presence, on top of really a great intelligence and political clout, courage and defiance, I'd probably choose Electron Sponge.

No offence meant to anyone else, but only a very few (that I know of) aren't/weren't dwarfed in comparison, and none of those few is still in activity.

 

(Full disclosure: for most of his career I definitely didn't like what ES was doing, basically every single darn time.)

Agreed. Working with him -- albeit briefly -- was one of the few highlights of my CN career.

The funny thing is 3 of the nation's are bill locked

 

And @conistonslim

 

That's not how I remember it back when I was in the Oculus leadership channels..  but could well have happened towards the end when there was a changeover of a few alliance leaderships who had a different view on the world than we originally did.

 

EDIT:

 

The fight back continues...
