07 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Russia]:literally shut the fuck up. you crazy person
07 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [USA]:How exactly do I do that 'literally'? Tell me, then I'll try to carry out your wishes.
07 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Russia]:by wiping your throat with iodine, then, using a local anesthetic and a sterilized scalpel remove your vocal chords.
07 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [USA]:Sorry, thought I had to find a 'fuck', whatever that is, and enclose it in a confined space. 'Literally', you said.
07 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Russia]:alright put it up your arse then
07 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [USA]:Define a 'fuck', in as much detail as possible so that we can positively identify it, the specifications of the enclosure required, and ensure me of the legalities of the proposed action and I will be more than willing to carry out your request.
07 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Russia]:no
07 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [USA]:Oh, now you say find a 'fuck', which I haven't yet been able to identify, and, instead of enclosing it in a proper habitat suitable for 'fucks', whatever they are, insert it into my anus? Is that the contract? You'd better sign it before we go ahead on this.
Who's the weirdo?
07 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Russia]:you are! ffs, guy you are tragic !
07 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [USA]:I'd say tragi/comic on a good day. Lighten up. I was/am bored. So? No space for that?
07 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [USA]:Ok. Wrong place to discuss this. I'll meet you downstairs in the scary man's office. Then we'll really know why we have a problem.
07 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [USA]:Learning irony? Huh?
07 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [USA]:Still the wrong place.
Meet you at dawn outside the palace gates. Pistols at dawn. Is that fair with you? Bring your seconds.
Apart from that, we may speak no more.
07 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Russia]:fuck off
07 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [India]:I'd like to point out, before this degrades further, that you can "mute" someone by clicking the little speaker button beneath their country name. I'd presume that it'd prevent direct contact as well as posts to this - the global messageboard. Of course you're all probably not seeing this because I'm already muted.

tl;dr - if someone's bugging you, mute them.
07 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [USA]:Glad to oblige. Noblesse oblige and all that.
Is that literally? How exactly does one do that?
I thought we were trying to catch those elusive 'fucks' (still, as yet unidentified in our records, going back many hundreds of years, as a species) for your concern.
07 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [USA]:How can I mute myself? Possible?
07 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [USA]:Difficult sometimes not to rise to the bait.
07 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [USA]:India]:"I'd like to point out, before this degrades further, that you can "mute" someone by clicking the little speaker button beneath their country name.

Well we are.
You started this whole shindig. Go find a 'fuck' and send it on its way.
07 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [USA]:Over and out.
10 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Western-Canada]:Hello Quebec:
Nice move into London! If you want to move on Texas, I will move on mexico.
10 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Russia]:fail
11 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [USA]:Interesting . . .
11 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [USA]:The 007 ploy?
"Mr Bond. I vill tell you precisely how I vill kill you."
11 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [USA]:Haven't you noticed it never works.
11 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Frozen-Antarctica]:Wonder why British Columbia, which is normally abbreviated, B.C., is BCo. Seems a waste of space on this map.
11 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Western-Canada]:Maybe it was incorporated?
11 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2002: [Frozen-Antarctica]:Very possibly.
14 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2003: [USA]:Tribute to Biko
14 May 12 UTC Autumn, 2003: [USA]:Maybe that's why South Africa left
17 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 2007: [India]:I just want to say how much I appreciate the opportunity everyone, especially the two Russias, are giving me to gloat. When I come back from one or two centres, the gloatation will be truly epic, such that you all begin weeping at the sheer enormity of the task. I will remind you that, given how much as Russia enjoys my repartee, if I am eliminated I will be depriving him and everyone else of further writings of this caliber. Thus I urge you to consider wisely your actions in the upcoming turns. Yours Truly, India.
17 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 2007: [USA]:Didn't see much repartee, India. If this is an example of its caliber, that is probably all to the good and perhaps elimination is too humane for you. Yours truly, Puzzled.
17 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 2007: [India]:In a room full of silence, any noise is repartee.
18 Jun 12 UTC Spring, 2007: [USA]:Now that is repartee! :~)
13 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 2010: [India]:How many centres do I have to have to win this game?
13 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Ghana]:I believe it is 44, but I may be wrong for the solo.
14 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 2010: [USA]:It is 44 for the solo.
14 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 2010: [USA]:Only 41 to go, India!
14 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 2010: [India]:thanks USA. I'm trying to pace myself. don't want to spook everyone.
14 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 2010: [USA]:Extremely cunning strategy :) Perhaps you shouldn't have put it on global. They might catch on, but probably not. Here's to eventual victory!
20 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 2011: [USA]:Didn't realize penguins could fly :) Seriously impressive!
20 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Ghana]:Indeed.
20 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Western-Canada]:Second that.
21 Jul 12 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Frozen-Antarctica]:Haha, that is an ugly map. Very ugly. But, I guess I'm impressed, too!
04 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 2013: [USA]:Another one! All hail the penguin!
23 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 2015: [Pacific-Russia]:Glad to see India going strong, my enclaves in Burma and the Phillipines remain also.
01 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 2016: [USA]:Penguin Riot are cool!
20 Sep 12 UTC [Frozen-Antarctica]:Well-played Ghana. India, Canada, I am sorry for the sneakiness. It wasn't cool, but it was how the game worked out.
20 Sep 12 UTC [India]:Thank you. Good thing the computer ended the game because I had you two over a barrel. I have to admit that it was a slight challenge fighting the combined force of 74 units you two possess with my 4, but given time...

Congrats Ghana for the win, and everyone on a game well played (well except those that dropped). Thank you Frozen and Ghana for being (to a point) trustworthy and honourable allies. And congrats Western for holding out til the bitter end.
21 Sep 12 UTC [Western-Canada]:Well played gentlemen and thank you. India's play was quite stellar.
