Caricatures - Public Press game
This was one that we did a while back and I thought it was fun. A public press game where everyone assumes a stereotypical accent.

ie Austria-Hungary types like John Cleese in the phrase book skit "EYE vill nut boiy dis record, it is skretched".

Speak if you guys want. I know my first comment is: I have no idea how the hell I made this happen by pissing off all 3 of my initial enemies. This is a perfect example of how you CAN make something happen without allies...lol

Do You Hear the People Sing...Egypt Sung For *This?*
http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/world/la-fg-egypt-court-elections-20120615,0,511695.story
LA Times, BBC News, and other outlets reporting Egypt's parliament has been dissolved by their high court while keeping a Mubarak supporter on the ballot for the Presidential Election. Thoughts?

pretending to CD
Ive tried this in a recent gunboat game, and it actually ended up working out fairly well. Is pretending to CD a valid strategy?

Apples and oranges
I've seen a number of discussions on the forums recently comparing two positions or ideas that are too different to reach a valid conclusion about which is better. Since invalid comparisons are in vogue right now, I thought we might discuss the classic: apples vs oranges. Go!

For debate: When is a gunboat not really a gunboat?
Hey gang: I accidentally clicked onto a gunboat game and now have no real way of backing out. Others are not really being acquiescent about a Cancel, so it looks like I'm (more or less) stuck. So instead, I'm setting up this thread as a potential discussion spot for gameID=91706. If players are talking here, is it still gunboat?

Not making this up, beware Webdip community, your days of calling someone a faggot after an NMR/CD may soon come back to haunt you. Or perhaps your anti government rants on the forum wouldn't help either ;)

Meh... The British parliament can kiss my smelly white American ass. Fuck them and their laws. I'm not under their juris-my-dick-tion and they can suck my cock if they think I give a fuck about their laws and opinions. Their all a bunch of fucking sodomists and pedophiles in parliament anyhow.

This website is not subject to British law. Australia may share a head of state with the UK but not a parliment. Nevermind the fact that Kestas could easily move webdips hosting to Sweden (home of the free? at least thepiratebay is still available...)

Now the UK could potentially block British citizens from viewing such inflammatory website. They can claim it applies to any website, but what case law is there at the moment in the UK? What does it take for a British court to claim jurisdiction over an Australian or Swedish website?

I'd like to hear Kestas' opinion, and legal advice. (any free legal advice out there?)
orathaic (1004 D (B))
13 Jun 12 UTC
Draug, what about the next time you want to visit the UK? would you like to be picked up at customs for trolling? If Kestas choose to comply with UK laws he could reveal your identity to the Authorities there... (or at least your IP address)

This sounds like it is being pushed by ISPs and webhosts who want to earn some measure of protection from legal action, tbh.
Draugnar (25 D X)
13 Jun 12 UTC
Um, been there once. Don't want to go back. I'll stick with tropical climates not rainy and cold for my vacations thank you.

Oh, and I should point out that they have no way to compell Kestas or the IP/equipment providers release the info as, once again, it is out of their juris-my-dick-tion!

And we have this law that says we can't be tried for a crime if it wasn't a crime when we commited it. So I can call those fuckers every name in the book and *still8 nothing will happen to me as the US has no law and I woudl have to do it *after* they passed one for it to be a crime. I love the US legal system!

At least until the Republicans take over here and decide it's a good way to get rid of their opposition too. It hasn't been that many years since the Patriot Act was used to get library records to see what people were checking out certain books.

Hey, don't lay it all on the Republicans. Obama signed the NDAA into law back in January and it seriously expanded the Patriot Act and the military's role going so far as allowing the military to detain US citizens arrested on US soil.

There's enough blame in the curtailing of our freedoms to go aroudn fro both sides of the aisle.

Draugnar: Yes, but when it comes to civil liberties and jingoism, the reality is that the Democrats are much more prone to maintain the status quo than worsen the situation/start a disaster like the Republicans
