Just Thought I'd Remind You...
Today is Palm Sunday....on Friday we mourn the death of the greatest man to walk the Earth. Though He was both God and yet man.
For those of you who do not realize the sheer magnitude of God's Love and sacrifice through this gesture of Grace, I would like for you to go out, purchase a Bible, and read the whole thing.

2-Way Draws... 17-17. No WIn. _ Two 'friends' get together & sweep the board.
They don't win, they won't let you survive: just a few points more.
A stalemate line unreached... just a Draw. -- Make any sense ?

And the Bad News Just Keeps Marching In For Eden...
http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/nflpa-warns-players-may-face-criminal-charges-bounty-155246283.html
Even if charges aren't brought against any players...wow, now they need lawyers? More and more, the Raiders are seriously in jeopardy of losing that "dirtiest team" mantle, fair or not, to the Saints...that SB win isn't looking as clean anymore (which is a shame, to be fair...)

Speaking of the sad state of science
A former researcher at Amgen Inc has found that many basic studies on cancer -- a high proportion of them from university labs -- are unreliable. C. Glenn Begley identified 53 "landmark" publications -- papers in top journals, from reputable labs -- for his team to reproduce. 47 were frauds.

Question/debate
At what point does it become bad form to not draw or cancel because of NMRs/CDs? It seems like it is almost inevitable to have at least one cd in live games, but is it bad to profit because of that and push on for a solo despite all the other players voting for a draw/cancel?

WebDiplomacy and The Final Crusade? (Game Proposal/Invite)
I think it's safe to say one of our most discussed/popular/maddening discussion topics here on the threads has been religion--one vs. another, atheism vs. theism, discrepancies between definitions of those identities (see: SC and I having a near-Jewish Civil War) so...anyone up for a game? Represent your denomination/branch of agnosticism/branch of atheism, we'll chat...have some wine...last players standing "win" The Last Crusade...? ;)

Player kicked out?
Looks like a player in our game got kicked out and someone took their place. The game is here: http://webdiplomacy.net/map.php?gameID=84494 The player in question is India, who was eighnjel or something like that, and is now timgard. India didn't log in all weekend but Argentina has never logged in and has not been kicked out. Is there any way to reverse this? Why did it happen? How do we replace Argentina?

How would you all like to be in on an experiment?
How about I mod the forum. Any hate, trolling, etc... I see I silence. If the op posts it again because I silenced the thread, I ban. Maybe then you guys will appreciate the freedom and stop trolling and crapping up the forum. Thoughts?

In Defense of mapleleaf, krellin, and All the Rest...
We've created them.
They have as much right to speak their mind and spew as much vitriol as I spew Shakespeare...the same way we've made me into the seeming embodiment of the long-winded pseudo-intellectual Ivory Tower elitist, we've created these trolls, too...you pay them heed, and you lend credence to their creed. Respond, mute them, ignore them...but they have their right to speak, too...

That being said, what the hell IS going on these days? Things do seem to be particularly angry lately... if even your old pal YJ is noticing, something's gotta be up.

I don't mute anyone, but everyone has that option, after all...

And what's more--

When you write as much and as pretentiously as I do, you HAVE to know and accept you'll get slammed by people...that's part of the deal in being any kind of speaker.

So mapleleaf and krellin and King Atom and TC and HolyCrusader and all the rest...

As much as I disagree with them...
Find them irritating at times...or reprehensible...or venomous...or just plain idiotic...

They have their right to respond, too.

So if you can't stand the heat, get out of the fray, I suppose, or mute them, or just ignore them, because as much as they can inflame tensions here, they have every right to do so--and I think we'd lose something if we didn't have such inflammatory figures...

It'd be like banning Glenn Beck--sure, you've stopped up a hole from which nothing but nonsensical refuse spews...

But

1. Where would we get our free entertainment then? and
2. Who'll make my Shakespearean monologues almost coherent then?

;)

Geez, fortknox is on a bit of a tirade (for him that is) today. Dude, let's focus on planning the face 2 face and getting the leagues back underway and let the rest of this shit just flush itself down the toilet.

Mod-a-Day Program
After listening to your suggestions about self-moderation, we've decided to try something new. Basically, we will give a user with a reasonable record mod privileges for one day to help keep order in the forum. We hope this will prevent any one person from going crazy with power, as it will only be for 24 hours. If you're interested, please post here.
