19 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: GameMaster: Clownie was banned: Multi/Meta/NoReply. 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!
19 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: who was the banned person?
19 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: Not France, I'm still here.
19 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 1902: It was me, but I got unbanned because it was a misunderstanding. Shame it breaks anon.
22 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: Professional armchair psychology by Russia:

"People who hide behind threats prove themselves very weak in character. Threats are meant to make the one giving the threat a feeling of power, which shows their weak character and self-worth since they have to resort to bullying to make themselves feel important."

He then promptly muted me. I rate it 2/10. Low energy. Sad!
22 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: Russia made a similar message to me after I asked him to bounce in Gal on the first move.

He's worse than Jeb!
22 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: Please clap.
22 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: I value honesty and straight-forwardness, not threats. Threats are for the weak that need to make themselves feel more valuable. A person of character and worth does not need to resort to threats as they have a strength of character and value that is not dependent on bullying others to make themselves feel big.

And at least, you see I am consistent in my beliefs.
23 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: Shut up Russia
23 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: So I'm guessing everyone except Italy hates Russia (not that Italy is pro-Russia or anything)?
23 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: Did I touch too close to home, Turkey?
23 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: France doesn't hate anyone. Not even England.
23 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: And that's a good. Hatred is such a negative, just like the need for threats.
23 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: You're just so annoying
23 Nov 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: I don't hate Russia, I find him endearingly immature.
09 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1908: Why save on a build phase? Jw
09 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 1909: Why global?
09 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 1909: You're not the only one that does it
14 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 1910: RIP Russia

1910 and first to be eliminated
18 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1911: With France gone, I'm happy to draw.
18 Dec 16 UTC Me too
18 Dec 16 UTC Gg all
