"New Game" page needs correction.
When creating a game and selecting the pre-phase length, the description says up to 5 days but the dropdown gives only up to 2.5 days.

Leaving the grey arrow
Is there any bigger asshole than the guy who's doomed to defeat and puts in his moves with a grey arrow so that everyone has to wait a day or more each phase? Of course everyone goes out of town sometimes or is unable to get to the site for some reason, but someone who does it faithfully every turn should be banned. It's the behavior of a crybaby.

On punching nazis
I've decided to appease the centrists. Instead of punching nazis, we'll murder them by drone with no due process.

@Yanik, your post was inappropriate, as are a vast majority of the posts you make. In a vacuum, I wouldn't care that much. When you put them all together, I find you problematic.

As for centrism, you clearly missed the point of the post entirely. I'd explain it to you, but I doubt you have the capacity to understand. (That one's just for you, Prado.)

I'm mocking people who like killing people with drones. This includes large, ideologically centrist swaths of the democratic party, like Obama.

The problem, ghug, is that you specifically said the thread was to call out centrists instead of conservatives so that you could make a pointed joke at James, but also said it exists to call out people who are in favor of drone strikes. The only way to reconcile these two is by claiming centrists are pro-drone strikes.

"@Yanik, your post was inappropriate, as are a vast majority of the posts you make. In a vacuum, I wouldn't care that much. When you put them all together, I find you problematic."

can you string together a few quotes of mine that are "problematic?" you said it was a VAST MAJORITY so it shouldn't be hard, but you've failed to quote me so far.


"As for centrism, you clearly missed the point of the post entirely. I'd explain it to you, but I doubt you have the capacity to understand. (That one's just for you, Prado.)"

ad hominem, and an unfunny one at that



"I'm mocking people who like killing people with drones. This includes large, ideologically centrist swaths of the democratic party, like Obama."

ok... so the almighty satire was:

"I've decided to appease the centrists. Instead of punching nazis, we'll murder them by drone with no due process."

so instead of doing one democrat thing, we'll do another primarily democrat thing.

but then why did you immediately post:

"I love how after all the talk of calling both sides out on their shit, James suddenly only has eyes for Obama."

but... i thought YOU were mocking the democrats. this doesn't seem genuine.


but hey, you want to insult democrats: go right ahead. if you have a clever zinger about Republicans throw it out there though.

It's almost like assuming the centrist-ground between anti-dronestrikes and anti-dronestrimes is pro-dronestrikes is ridiculous or something.

"ad hominem, and an unfunny one at that"

You're way too fucking fond of the ad hominem claim. It's a fallacy if I'm trying to undermine his arguments by bringing up unrelated facts to make him look bad. A joke about someone is not an ad hominem. In this case the joke was about me being pretentious, so while I appreciate the sentiment, I don't need you to defend me from myself.
JamesYanik (548 D)
17 Aug 17 UTC
also the basic idea of centrism is the combination of two partisan ideas.

1. punching nazis
2. drone strikes

if this is satirical of centrism, then one side should be liberal, one conservative, and the combination should be hilariously bad.

but i pointed out both of those are primarily democrat viewpoints.

thus either it's a bad piece of satire, or it's super-critical of democrats. knowing DO, i believe it's the former.

do you reject this?

Prado, it turns out that the whole drone thing is popular in the center regardless of party. You can label yourself a centrist and be opposed, and good on you for that because killing people is bad, but that doesn't change that fact.

You define centrist as someone not affiliated with both parties. I'm defining it ideologically, which happens to encompass large parts of both parties. It's popular with the political establishment and their supporters.
TrPrado (367 D Mod)

That's my definition for independent. I know centrists in both parties. I have a very good friend in particular in mind who's a Republican and would be a centrist by any measure. He's not in favor of killing civilians. No other centrist I know or have ever heard of tries to justify killing civilians.

TrPrado, a very telling sign that you think Obamas drone program killed "more covilians than any other". I see you've conveniently forgotten the one millions Iraqis killed by Bush's lies to launch and invasion to boost his poll numbers. Or Nixon, Johnson, and Kennedy and their disaster in Vietnam. Of course the black guy is the worst (even if that isn't remotely true

Obama carried out more drone strikes in his first year in office than Bush did his entire time as president - https://www.thebureauinvestigates.com/stories/2017-01-17/obamas-covert-drone-war-in-numbers-ten-times-more-strikes-than-bush.

Using the highest estimates available, the total number of deaths resulting from the
Iraq war (including friendly, enemy, and civilian deaths) is less than 200,000. Where tf did you get 1 million Iraqis killed from?

Also, stop being racist.

Update: I did a little more searching and it appears the numbers I found earlier were actually a little dated. That number should be revised up to 250,00-300,000, still far below the 1 million mark though.
