Most Well Known Current Leaders?
I was wondering what the most well known current leaders of the world are and realized that I actually didn't know very many. So my question for you guys is how many current world leaders do you know and which ones are they? Also, what country are you from?

Worst Mistakes in Diplomacy
I'm curious to know what people consider their worst mistakes in their entire Diplomacy career. Is it failing in a guaranteed solo? Messing up a secure draw? Being eliminated when you shouldn't have?

Diplomacy walk-on music
It's the year 2030. Diplomacy has finally taken its rightful place as one of the "big four" global sports, along with soccer, twenty20 cricket, and ultimate frisbee. The first million dollar tournament opens with hordes of screaming fans straining to glimpse you as you stroll to the game board, your walk-on music reverberating through the arena...

What is that music?

The Death of a Legend
As above, so below
Yellowjacket (835 D (B))
04 Jun 16 UTC
(+9)

Hark, my fellows, listen close,
To what your Lords hath wrought.
Perhaps a warning e'er we begin,
Joyful this tale is not.

Thus starts the saga of Yellow Jacket,
Read out loud! (to feel immersion)
For this is the legend of a legend so great,
T'must be told in the third person.

Respected oft-times for his game,
But more feared for his word.
For wielded he, tongue razor-keen,
As a knight doth wield his sword.

He'd pit this wit against all foes,
Who dared logic disdain.
And should their speech much reason lack,
That tongue would lash them pain.

Against the vile right-winger,
Would our hero mock and jape.
And against the vapid fundie,
Did he rail and did he ape.

To match our hero's gift of gab,
Too many had aspired.
And yet as all good things must go,
So this thing too, expired.

You see, came he, upon a foil,
Some Lord of Webdip Land.
Tiresome, dim! Yet grasping him,
A checkered bann'r in hand.

Hither and yon the petty lord strode,
Enforcing and mandating.
T'was whispered, "With banhammer so large -
Perhaps he's compensating?"

Now against our hero's levity,
This lord was wont to bray:
"Am I not master of this land?
I say what you may say!"

And Yellow Jacket did respond,
With customary grace:
Took rod in hand, and with it, slapped,
That lord across the face.

Snick Snack! Snick Snack! So truly struck,
The small lord's paltry hide.
Imposs'ble to forgive, he found,
This damage to his pride.

Retribution? Swift! Indeed it was,
As many did forsee.
But much to the surprise of all,
Banhammer'd t'was not to be!

More cruel, the Lords of Webdip land,
(How the wicked ones did rejoice!)
Through magicks vile did they defile
Our hero's very voice.

Didst thou know? 'Tis true! Full on a year,
Did our champ'yon agonize.
They bade him read, most insipid of things,
But ne'er he could crack wise.

Too brutal was this punishment!
The Lords fin'ly had recognition.
Our hero's tongue would be returned,
IF... His tone he'd recondition.

"Can it be so?" You may well ask.
"Shall our pal truly be free?"
Alas, alack, it shan't be thus.
I'll explain so you can see.

What purpose the archer, without her bow?
Or the bird who can't take wing?
And what good is a wit, having blunted its edge?
Or this wasp, without his sting?

Of what use is Webdip land to him,
If the inane flows unabated?
And what at all use is he to you?
With his retorts thus 'moderated?'

Unrepentant, instead, he'll wish to all,
His dearest friends, "Goodbye!"
For rather than live as less than himself,
The legend would rather die.

Upon this grave, let tyrant Lords
Bear witness to their sin,
As they scrawl, "We killed the Yellow Jacket."
And sign: "-Webdip Admin."

Sad to see you go, YJ. Remember some fun times with ya in mafia way back and on the forum.


When they came for Yellowjacket, I did not speak out, because I wasn't a bee.

When they came for Al Swearengan, I did not speak out, because he's kind of a dick.

When they came for me, there was no one left to speak out.

Good night and good luck YJ.

This site now exclusively caters to limp-wristed welfare beneficiaries and rich kids, to wit, the scum of western society.

I'm not saying that's a bad thing, just that it's not to the taste of people with a soul and more than 2 brain cells.

Long live sacred pre-Zultar webdip!

Wanted: Thoughtful Discussion
I'm working on a project where I have to document the process of having a discussion with someone whose views I disagree with. The point of the assignment is to examine my own biases, and find ways to address them. So, since I consider myself liberal in most social and economic policy, I'm looking for an open-minded conservative to debate and discuss politics with. If you're interested, shoot me a PM. Thanks.
