dislodging a convoy
I've asked this before, and I know I should know, but: what does it take to dislodge a convoy? if one unit attacks a convoying unit does the convoyed unit arrive at its destination, or stay where it started? Does it take two units, a move and a support, which would give the area to the dislodging units? Please explain.

Is the premise "all men are created equal" necessary for a Western republic?
See above. I have thoughts on this but will save them for a little while later.

Please be mindful of the additional etiquette requests I am making in the next post.

Underrepresented minority groups.
I think that when people have been singing the praises of both vanilla and strawberry milkshakes, the truly greatest milkshakes have fallen to the wayside. Chocolate-Peanut butter shakes are the best and you all need to see the error of your ways.

Anyone available to cancel a game?
I don't know the protocol or how often this happens, but the site crashed, and now Silent Partners-3 is back up, some countries' moves processed and others didn't. I watch all the games in this series (I have set up the games). I hope we're not expected to continue under conditions like these, but i'm open to however people usually handle this.

Resulting Fallacy
This article is about decision making in poker, but I think it equally applies to Diplomacy and well lots of other things too. I think a lot of players, including myself, fall into this trap of believing everything that works was a good decision and everything that doesn't was a bad one.

Yes you can make bad descions with a good result and good ones with bad results.

Trump may end up as one of these dependig who side your on.

Nice article explaining something that should be obvious but to many people isn't.

Of course, being aware that good plans can fail because of bad luck, and actually being able to tell this apart from a bad plan, are two separate things.
Well, one of the things I found useful is that she said when she asks other players for advice she doesn't tell them what the outcome was. So for Diplomacy you could present a scenario to another player (or the forum if you were feeling especially brave) and then ask people what they would have done. If the advice you get, matches what you did, then you know you had a good plan regardless of what the outcome was.

Not really... If the advice you get matches what you did then you know you had an obvious plan. Although before learning this lesson you'd first have to get over the shock of forum diplomacy players agreeing on something.

I think this article is very applicable to learning how to be good at Diplomacy.

You can pick up a lot of bad habits when you play mostly with other inexperienced players. These bad habits are often from "the resulting fallacy" because such inexperienced players may try to learn by trial-and-error rather than by studying the play or teachings of experienced players.

Brainstorming on getting more no-press live classic games
Arg! We had 6 for a no-press (i.e. no-chat) live game tonight, no cigar. And there haven't been a lot of no-press Many years ago, my FTF Dip crew had a similar problem ... some wanted and had time for no-press, others didn't, so we couldn't get 7 ... and we came up with a neat solution, which I'll share in a minute. But first ... anyone have advice on how we drum up support for a live no-press game?
