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.

Unpopular opinion thread
I saw this posted on another forum and it ended up being a great thread.

Post an unpopular opinion you have, and only comment if you (dis)agree under others - no arguing.

No 'speech freedom' AS WE KNOW IT TODAY. As I've expressed before in this forum, I think the word 'freedom' is one of the most abused words I can think of.

But let me add some thinking. 'Speech freedom' should not be restricted for individuals.

But may I ask, how should we call someone who falsifies a physician degree? And then, how should you call an institution that tries to make you believe they are doing science but actually have other kind of motivations? If you have a private institution without some kind of acadamic credentials, producing and distributing to elementary school teachers hundreds of thousands of panflets that 'disproof' climate change, you should at least audit the money they use to do that.

This is just an example, called 'Heartland Institute', ironically the first word of their lemma happens to be 'freedom'.

Defend your freedom for lying to your people.

principians stop breaking the rules, we're not allowed to argue, but just because you're throwing crap out there.


public schools are usually backed by government fiat, so if you're impersonating someone with federal credentials: that's pretending to be authorized by the collective governance of the people, which belies basic societal rights. furthermore, using a patented school crest and a forged signature on a graduation certificate are both illegal. also neither of these are actual speech, rather actual physical actions done as deceit. hell, impersonating someone on public ground is not illegal, unless you provide forged documentation, are speaking to a public official, displaying their personal information without consent, or are inciting violence against them. you're equivocating both public and private rights, and you're also not considering the high school level philosophy of rights and liberties, which is that your rights end, where another's begin. this is why free speech is not allowed to directly incite violence against an individual, but not extended to block unpopular speech. you have a right to your own personal opinion, but not to threaten another with bodily harm

now PLEASE, DM me if you want to talk further, but let's stick with the OP
