Swedish dentist loses job, sued by government...
for reporting migrant age fraud to Swedish Migration Board

I apologize in advance for the source, but it's the only English-language website reporting on it. MSM obviously won't pick this story up.

Why are conservatives so bad at Diplomacy?
Is it the lack of intelligence? Ego over practicality? Naive self-interest? Inability to understand other perspectives? Poor social skills? Or some other factors?

I find it interesting that liberals tend to be better at this kind of realpolitik - maybe it's because we actually understand its consequences while conservatives just fetishize it.

That's an interesting assertion. Do you have any source/data to back it up? I'm not saying you're wrong - heck, I'd be happy to learn you're right - but I'd love to see some evidence.

Basically all the conservatives that post on this forum are worse than 500, most are worse than the 50%th percentile. All the top 100 players that post on the forum are leftist. I don't have any data, the notion that anyone would is absurd.

I have a feeling your assertion is completely invalid, but if it's true that the players that are conservative that post on the forum are all terrible, it may be due to the fact that there are many intelligent conservative players that realize there's absolutely no point in trying to rationalize or discuss topics with those that believe they are intellectually superior because of their political views. So we just don't post in the forum and quietly go about our business playing games, on a website designed for the purpose of playing a game.

o u t l i e r s

All of the data anyone has access to says that there are way more leftists at the top and way more conservatives on the bottom. Almost all the conservatives who post here are in the bottom 2000. You can assert that all the other conservatives recognize the futility of arguing, but then why don't the leftists also realize that futility? You have no actual evidence.

In any case, I don't give a shit about hidden conservatives. I just want everyone to recognize that all the forum posting fascists are actually really fucking awful at this game and make them feel bad, you don't really matter re: that point.

This is a stupid thread. I suggest you do not make any more threads calling a group of people stupid or that they lack sympathy. Condescension, you have been silenced for 7 days. The next silence will be a whole month.

FYI, there are plenty of people that I know of who are in the top 100 who are conservatives or have conservative tendencies. Octavious when he was playing is a top five player. HR has some conservative tendencies for someone in the UK. Here are a couple of other people: Gen Lee, ssorenn (my guess anyway), and that is just in the top 50.

You have no idea what people's political affiliations or leanings are other than a few loudmouths on the forum, and from what I can see, almost all of the loudmouths on the forum are not great at Diplomacy and I can back that up easily. Moreover, the loudmouths run the gamut in terms of political leanings.

How to protest the right way?
Can someone please enlighten me?

Apparently being peaceful isn't ok. But exiting a stadium early as a sign of your rejection of the protest is an acceptable protest.

Feature Request
I dislike bananas. I would like a feature to show when my opponents last ate a banana, as well as where that banana fell on the green-brown scale (I find green bananas less objectionable. Banana-based deserts and smoothies are unimportant, but this feature should also account for artificial banana flavors in things such as candy. I will generally leave implementation details such as how to display the color scale up to the developer, as I understand how important they are. Thanks!
