25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: Spain, I think he needs some help, and I feel you on the pro-life thing. He always misreads my response, and somehow that making me the dumbass. He thinks Cuba has better healthcare then the United States and America is in the UK's pocket (and Israel's of course). I wonder if he's going to continue to send me messages in private chat, but I am no longer amused.
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: At this point, nobody is ammused.
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: Je suis amuse...
Not really, just the only French I remember... Damn US-centric educational system! :)
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: lol @ Germany

25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: I don't see why you think boyfriend is an insult. I'm a strong supporter of LGBT rights.
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: And I'm not? My little brother is gay and I have gay friends. Not all Republicans are against gay marriage, son. But, I don't call them faggots hmm, wonder why. Just like how I am kind to special Ed. kids, but call people retarded all the time.
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: Yes, but you keep implying I have a boyfriend as if that's some kind of insult when we're trying to have a serious discussion. You're perpetuating a culture of hatred.
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: @ Spain - Yeah, France is making me begin to question my pro-life stance.
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: Still not sure if this global chat is amusing..... or becoming annoying.... :P
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: Offensive is the more appropriate description. Crap, I said I wasn't gonna comment anymore.
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: I will never be silenced.
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: Did you also receive swastika symbols in pm?
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: No, nothing other than the low educated vitriol that he spews in an attempt for attention. Really sad.
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: Also, if he had the time to do that ass-rape thing above, he obviously has way to much time on his hands for being a dick to people.
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: he made a picture of a swatika with some neonazi texts and sent it to me.
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: swastika
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: "A culture of hatred", son, you are encouraging anti-semitism and sending swastikas to people. How do you know I'm not Jewish? Any gay person with a brain would know I am not the troublemaker here. Or that I am desperate enough for attention to pick fights with people over an online game.
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: It's all about upbringing or the lack thereof, imho. He just wants the attention and we're providing that with the responses. Let's just agree to cease all commentary.
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: Yeah Poland, I got the same thing as you.
25 Feb 14 UTC Autumn, 1997: You guys are pretty dumb. I've never even lived in the UK.

26 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1998: GameMaster: ExpDel was banned: meta/no response. The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.
Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
26 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1998: Nice!
26 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1998: Finally
26 Feb 14 UTC Spring, 1998: Praise the Lord!
12 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2001: Can't we just draw after Russia is gone? We had a nice game, but it sucks to have to fight a long and tiresome impossible battle.
12 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2001: Poland would be happy to accomodate a little bit of love :)
15 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2002: And Russia is dead! Long live Russia!
17 Mar 14 UTC Spring, 2003: Wow... Italy left?
27 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2005: Where's a distracting tirade from France when you need one? :)
27 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2005: Lord, I hope never again; however, I am curious as to who he was.
27 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2005: Soon we shall see who he was....
27 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2005: Good game guys! I quickened my own suffering by forgetting to move.
27 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2005: Yeah, I saw the NMR coming with three minutes left and took some liberties.
28 Mar 14 UTC Autumn, 2005: Oh just draw, Poland deserves some points. :)
02 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 2006: I am glad I still have control over Moldavia.
04 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 2007: Poland, I'm glad you have a sense of humor; however, I'm going to make one observation here that I hope doesn't fall on deaf ears. I was perfectly happy to allow you to share in a three way Draw. You deserved the points. When you began to delay your orders, however, and responded that you were doing so just to bore the s**t out of me, I had no remorse in cutting you out. I could have won this game but Egypt has been a class act throughout the entire game and he deserved and will receive a Draw. Being humble isn't always bad! Better luck in your next game. It shall be interesting just to see whom the players were.
04 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 2007: Yorkshire for the win!
04 Apr 14 UTC Spring, 2007: Do I need to cover that unsightly brown in Yorkshire?
05 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 2007: I knew you were bullshitting me when you asked me to stab germany and then complained about it afterwards. I don't think you would ever have given me a draw.
05 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 2007: Well..... I'm going to stay out of this argument *goes and hides in a corner*
05 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 2007: With all due respect, you're incorrect. This was always supposed to have been a three way draw and you would have substituted for italy who left.
05 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 2007: Just offering constructive criticism on how to be successful in this game. How you use it is up to you.
05 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 2007: Based upon my ranking, I feel I've earned the right to offer criticism.
06 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 2007: Spain, from what I saw in the game, you have no ability to hold to any agreement that doesn't immediately benefit you, and/or you are able to exploit. Granted, its just one game, but I cite our agreement in splitting up France as example 1, and Poland's stab, and your inability to hold off invading scandinavia when he did.
06 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 2007: Well, you have the ability to look at my history once names are revealed. Certainly alliances are sometimes broken, but, as I have stated, I typically stay with my alliances long term. Ask Egypt and Italy, if he were still here. This triple was formed from the beginning and would have dominated. Yes, I broke alliances with both you and France that I had no intention of keeping, just as you have likely done in other games. It's simply part of the strategy involved. Perhaps, then, it's a matter of communication as to whom you trust or not.

Thanks for participating, though, and I hope I will have the pleasure of playing with you again in another game.
06 Apr 14 UTC Autumn, 2007: I'm sure you will.
