07 May 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: yet keep in mind that no one suspected my betrayal at first
08 May 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: All right David, I've got 125 000 insults coming. This might take a while . . .
08 May 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: Artless base-court apple-john
08 May 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: Artless base-court baggage
08 May 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: Artless base-court barnacle
08 May 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: Artless base-court bladder
08 May 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: Artless base-court boar-pig
08 May 09 UTC Autumn, 1910: Artless base-court bugbear
08 May 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Oh please! Stop reading out of your dictionary for insults.
08 May 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Oh quiet up you surly knotty-paved moldwarp.
08 May 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Hush, what a mouth you have!
(You audacious stew-rotted pug)
09 May 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Oh you dare! You Yeasty rump-fed giglet.
09 May 09 UTC Spring, 1911: lol I am enjoying this
10 May 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Out of insults David? I still have 124 992 left.
10 May 09 UTC Spring, 1911: No, you Otiose hoary-eyed moue, I have plenty left as well.
Merriam-Webster word-of-the-day works well. That and lists of adjectives and little-used words. I should write a computer program to make billions of these up.
10 May 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Thou mewling earth-vexing fustilarian, you haven't seen anything yet, and I doubt that Merriam Webster has words as powerful as the ones I'll throw at you!
10 May 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Paunchy toad-spotted foot-licker
10 May 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Just you wait, you quixotic lie-harking non-corpus, until I get my program finished. 10 000 adjectives*10 000 verbs*10 000 nouns = 1 000 000 000 000 possible insults!
Take that you pint-nosed carlinging nindex!
10 May 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Listen you gleeking swag-bellied ratsbane, the point is that your insults are not up to the match of competing with mine. Sorry to disappoint you, even if you are a qualling folly-bitten joithead.
11 May 09 UTC Spring, 1911: I know what you're up to you knavish dread-bolted maggot-pie! You're not actually making yours up! That's cheating, peevish pale-hearted whipster.
11 May 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Is that the best you can do you loggerheaded tardy-gaited clotpole? You fail me yet again. All I can say in your defense is that you are an infectuous sheep-biting varlet.
11 May 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Can I suggest for the next games to be something like 48 hours instead of 72
13 May 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: Well, Sean, rather than continue to inundate this board with insults, of which I have over 400 000 generated now, I suggest we call a truce to the insults.
13 May 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: Yeah that is a good Idea Mike.... 48 hours phases would make this game end this century
13 May 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: Well it would have been over for you if you hadn't helped out England there, what did he offer you? Or are you just being cheap?
13 May 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: That goes for you too, France. Supporting Burgundy into your own country, bet you didn't know that didn't work, eh?

Why does everyone seem to just give up and help someone who has nothing to offer them? It seems unfair (and nearly metagaming) to try supporting someone who is in the process of invading you simply to have them win instead of someone else. But that's just my thoughts on things...
14 May 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: it's not like they were forced to help me... they chose to help me.
14 May 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: Come on you frothy guts-griping haggard, win this durned game or my defeat will have been for nothing!
14 May 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: Death to perfidious Albion !
14 May 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: Yes, but they chose to help you in a manner that no nation on Earth would ever. It is generally frowned upon in the diplomacy world to support someone, or even make room for someone, to improve their chances of invading you. It is a move that just doesn't make sense from a survival standpoint.
15 May 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: I see your point, but say you were a small country and two larger countries were trying to take over (one wanting to preform an "Ethnic Cleansing" and the other just to have space for war).
I guess in the end it would have to be a choice thats best for the people.

but to avoid this kind of conflict in future games- no smaller countries can give themselves up- "Play the Game like a Pro"-BW
does this help at all? (and yes I realize I take advantage of the smaller countries I'll stop it in future games)
15 May 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: All is fair in war.
15 May 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: Alright, then. To war!
15 May 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: Death to perfidious Albion!
17 May 09 UTC Autumn, 1911: So... hows everyones long weekend going?
17 May 09 UTC Spring, 1912: Its going pretty good Mike all things considered. Next four stouges game I hope that I am not this accursed Russia. Italy is the only way to go... for their pasta and the olive oil is to die for.
18 May 09 UTC Spring, 1912: Got that right!
18 May 09 UTC Spring, 1912: David! Hurry up and make your move.... I am not getting any younger over here.
18 May 09 UTC Spring, 1912: that may just be you Thomas... I have the disease that Benjamin Button has :D
18 May 09 UTC Spring, 1912: Death to the limeys!
19 May 09 UTC Spring, 1912: WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! None of that now!!!!!!!
19 May 09 UTC Spring, 1912: Sean !!! David~!~~ and Taylor!!! Read my story already!!! I want to know if you guys think if its awesome!
19 May 09 UTC Spring, 1912: Sorry, I had little (read annoying) cousins over. How's this?
19 May 09 UTC Spring, 1912: I think that went well, hey Thomas? Now you don't have to wait for me to make moves anymore ; )
19 May 09 UTC Spring, 1912: Death to the lobsters!
21 May 09 UTC Common you limeys and frogs! Finish your moves so we can get a move on!

Death the the frogs and the lobsters!
22 May 09 UTC Wow... I did not expect to see Italy attack Spain... Congrats to Mr. David
22 May 09 UTC Amazing! The tottering dog hearted horn-beast is actually good at something ! One will never cease to discover singular occurrences.
22 May 09 UTC Good game! Especially you, Sean, you unmuzzled earth-vexing jolthead. It was a good game, especially that last line against you, Pepper. I was actually worried that I wouldn't be able to push past your line. With proper Support Holds, I think you could have stopped any advance I could try. Then I would have had to vote draw.
