17 Jan 16 UTC Spring, 1902: So, I just thought I would share the big-ass whine that I just received from our waaaay-to-serious and exceptionally immature Austrian player. Apparently, he had a tizzy fit when I didn't do as he asked, begged, demanded, etc., in attacking Turkey. I also had the audacity to disagree (correctly), with his (or her) highnesses' rules interpretation. Boo-hoo!

Read on, and should you decide to work with Austria on his crusade to rid the world of me, you too can reap the insults when you don't toe his line...(and no, as Turkey may or may not now confirm, I didn't have a deal to screw you--just decided to play my own strategy). Austria's last not to me follows--enjoy!

Are you on drugs? Where do I start?

First of all, You weren't in Ukraine; you were in Rumania. Second, the Turkish fleet in the Black Sea can't move into Ukraine. It's land-locked. I know that your rules expertise is extensive, but I'm pretty sure that fleets aren't allowed in land-locked spaces. If by some act of God he had succeeded in displacing you from Rumania you could have just retreated to Ukraine. That, of course, would never have happened BECAUSE THE MOVES I SUGGESTED, NO, BEGGED YOU TO MAKE WOULD HAVE WORKED!

I spent a lot of time typing, trying to convince you of the need to write two stinkin' moves. Two moves. That was all you had to do and for one reason or another you were incapable of doing that. To be honest, I don't care why you didn't write them. It suffices for my purposes that you just didn't write them. I have no desire to ally with incompetence, duplicity, or both..

You were dead wrong about the rules interpretation, but were either too dumb to realize it or using it as an excuse to screw me. That's OK. I've been screwed before. It's part of the game.

Now let me introduce you to another part of the game. It's called "payback." As soon as I send this I'm on the phone to Turkey, Germany, and England, anyone who can benefit from my assistance in defeating you. I will sacrifice my armies to allow others to grow, so long as I'm convinced that they're after you.

Jesus, what a jerk.
17 Jan 16 UTC Spring, 1902: BTW. You can all follow Austria's call for an intifada against me, or, and I think this would be much more fun, let's all attack Austria...Given how easily angry and frustrated this little boy (or girl if that be the case) becomes when you don't follow his orders or in some way disagree with him, I think it'd be a hoot to watch him melt down turn after turn! Then again, he'd probably quit before before too long. Typical of the name-callers. Of course, it would be fun while it lasted!

No matter, and as always, good luck and have fun!
18 Jan 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: In retrospect, I may have been a bit over the top.
