I still don't get why people get so upset about GOONS wanting them to write short stories or draw funny pictures. You must not care about your alliance very much if you can't write a comedic short story to save its life.

Well, that's the problem with /b/, they can't generate any content. All they know how to do is take content from other groups, memefy it, and repeat the memes endlessly.

Either way, have fun in Athens, /b/.

This is a thread I could never predict or even dreamt up. So many different ironies running in different directions...

Grouping?

CN translation: Two people/alliances I don't like just got together so now two birds can be killed with one stone a bit more literally than that phrase is usually intended. It's used as a joke as much if not more than it is seriously.

Its the whole being forced to generate a humorous short story at sword-point, you know? I have enough trouble with writers block under normal circumstances. That and I think its kind of humiliating, like being turned into their puppet :-/ dancing for their amusement.

This thread makes me feel somehow dirty inside. Oh the existential crises.

Also, all of you are next. :smug:

You are dirty inside. And outside. Literally and metaphorically.
All hail Londo Mollari, the consumer!

(btw, does this mean you are like the borg? either consume or destroy something?)

I agree. We should have demanded money and tech instead. Or maybe just installed a viceroy. Or better yet, simply continued to attack without any terms for peace. Damn us and our cruel terms.

Didn't say your terms were cruel, just I felt they were kind of humiliating. Admittedly, i could have handled the situation better.

You think? I went from being a Dictator of an alliance to just a nobody...

You were dictator of a newbie micro-alliance that everyone hated. You were already a nobody.

It's designed to be humilating, much like a school-yard bully beating up a smaller kid and making him say "I'm a monkey's uncle" or whatever. It's meaningless, except the bully gets off on it.

To be quite honest, you're not that bad for a /b/ member. You must see how you're just providing tears for our enjoyment by producing threads like this, however. You're putting a lot more effort into crying about how GOONS ruined your day by making you decide between eating a small slice of humble pie for our enjoyment or merging your alliance into another one. Every individual that has successfully completed our terms comes out of it with an entry on our 'do not attack' list, and most come out of there with a smile on their faces. All it takes is 5-10 minutes of creativity and a sense of humor.

Honestly I was just ribbing you guys. And I wouldn't say I am crying, I was more just mildly annoyed by the whole situation. But hey, by folding into Athens, I got 3 tech deals the same day. That was pretty sweet. :lol1:

This just in: Athens sicks attack-dogs GOONS on unsuspecting [s]newbs[/s] micro-alliances in covert plan to bolster their numbers by way of strong-arm mergers, suspected tear splitting scheme in progress. Full Story At 11. :ehm:
