11 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: Bye bye Russia...
See you in a next "encarnation"...
;-)
11 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: He's not dead yet.
11 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: See ya!
12 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: I was not just saying Russia is dead... i am saying that the both of us (he and me) are dead...
;-(
12 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: You're not dead either.
12 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: It's just a flesh wound.
12 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: I've had worse.
12 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: Come back. I'll bite you in the kneecap.
12 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: That sounds painful.


To the person biting, not the one with the kneecap.
12 Nov 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: see ya!
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: Good game, all.
DipperDon
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: bugger! :)
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: Dipper. It's BESM! I've missed you.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: ya'll don't need sev now, do ya?
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: By the way, who are you Russia?
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: It's yours, my friend.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: Assuming Ag agrees, of course.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: Who is Ag?
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: Russia. At least I think so.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: ag7433
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: He outed himself last year.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: How do you know? I'm so confused.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: lol He put it in the global press. Or at least I thought he did.
Maybe he didn't. Now I'm confused.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: Plastic Hussar here. I can't seem to avoid playing games with BESM these days.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: I wonder if I'm in any more annon games with either of you two. Dipp, you're number 14 now? Good. I still remember the game your france rolled through my germany just when I was rolling through Russia.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: I can still remember the game where he turned me inside out and stomped all over what was left. Oh wait, that was this game.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: Dipper is such a sweet guy. I have missed playing against him. Would have been fun to know it was him winning the game.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: Why doesn't aus retreat so we can get Dipperman his win.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: To be honest, I am thinking of not playing any more anon games. I prefer knowing who I am talking with. I can see the attraction for the "big poppies" but for the common folk, not so much.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: Well, I play both, but ann games keep people from hitting me because of my points or rating. Last time I was in a game with Dip, he was pissed about something. Glad he came back from chess.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: Yes - you are a big poppy.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: You are too kind.

But I'll never leave chess. I'm a mediocre player, but I enjoy fast games too much to ever quit. Mostly five minute blitz games, a lot faster than what most people think of when they think of chess.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: I'm Dipperdon on ICC if anyone wants to play.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: What is a big poppy? and who?
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: You know - a big poppy stands out and gets it's head lopped off. It refers to the phenomenon of high ranking players being immediate targets of the mob.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: Well then, Dip is as am I. But Dip deserves the abuse, while I am generally sweet and trusting. I refer back to his France and my disappearing Germany.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: lol BESM, I'm nominating you as a captain for the upcoming world championship tournament. I do hope you'll accept the nomination, run, win, and let me play on your team.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: I don't know nuthing about tournaments.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: correction: It's called the World Series Diplomacy Tournament, I think. See the forum if you haven't already.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: I haven't. Where in the forum? You know me. I just know about playing, nothing much else.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: I just looked at the forum and saw nothing, Dipman, but I do like it that you are being so sweet to me. Are you really playing in a tournamen? Have you? How does it you, big guy?
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: http://www.webdiplomacy.net/forum.php?viewthread=496471#496471
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: You were serrious. I just went there. Those people can all play. Nice complement from you. Thank you. I'd love to play on any team you were on. Don't know how tournaments work. 7 boards and player from each team on each board?
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: ag, you need to be in that tournament. You're a damn fine player, and we need you.
14 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1912: I am so confused.
