23 Jan 13 UTC Spring, 2000: GameMaster: Bourne was banned: multi.
23 Jan 13 UTC Spring, 2000: [China]:Uh, was someone banned before we started? Great.
23 Jan 13 UTC Spring, 2000: [USA]:'Merica
23 Jan 13 UTC Spring, 2000: [Europe]:Welcome to the Scaldlands!
03 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2004: [Argentina]:lol, first game where i'm actually doing well
04 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 2005: [Near-East]:China i need your support to finish pac russia, can you attack yakutsk or support omsk to east sib
04 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 2005: [Europe]:Why are you talking on the global message board?
04 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 2005: [Western-Canada]:Deception?
04 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 2005: [Argentina]:Probably. That or just idiocy
04 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Libya]:I'd make fun of Near-East now, but I've accidently posted plans to the global message board in the past, so I really can't.
05 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Argentina]:Lolol
05 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Near-East]:Just a mistake, lol
07 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2006: [China]:Near-East is a whiny bitch.
07 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Oz]:Just like you are a backstabber
07 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2006: [China]:Oooohhh...backstabber! What a bad word!

This is Diplomacy. Grow up or go home.
07 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2006: [China]:By the way, Oz, weren't you the one inciting my "backstabbing?" Hypocrite, much?
07 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Oz]:I'm not going to bother replying to your messages and descending to your level
07 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2006: [China]:Because you can't respond substantively?
07 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Oz]:No, I just don't find replying to insulting messages something I enjoy.
07 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Argentina]:Hey now, lets be cool
08 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2006: [USA]:Yea, it's only a game, you win some you lose some. One thing I noticed in diplomacy is almost everybody backstabs. It is possible to play the game without lying. Watch what words you say and follow your exact words. That's not lying.
08 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Western-Canada]:Well said USA. Thanks for being a good sport and putting up a good fight. The only thing I hate more that a soloist is a quitter.
08 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Argentina]:Agreed. There really needs to be a warning label, "May Ruin Friendships"
08 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2006: [China]:I read an account in a Diplomacy book once about a jolly fellow that wound up being battered by a dwarf that he had stabbed in a game.

If that doesn't speak to the nature of Diplomacy, I don't know what does.
08 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Argentina]:Gotta love the dwarves
08 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2006: [USA]:I feel like that dwarf was a bit aggravated
08 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2006: [Argentina]:It would seem so
09 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 2007: [Argentina]:Why is Africa literally ALL supply centers
09 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 2007: [China]:Because the creator of this variant was an imperialist, bourgeois pig.
11 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 2008: [Near-East]:China what a curious way to put it, the vocabulary you use is just the same as your gameplay.
11 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 2008: [Near-East]:There are 4 nations in africa, while the other continents only have 3 or less
11 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 2008: [China]:Yes. I am a bad, bad, bad man. Of course your move into my territory on the same turn I stabbed you was evidence of how nice and trustworthy you are.

I don't know what game you think you're playing. This isn't Apples to Apples.
11 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 2008: [Near-East]:Haha
11 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 2008: [Near-East]:Your stabbing was not quite a suprise....
11 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 2008: [Near-East]:And your reactions eather, actually its a kind cabaret!
12 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Europe]:If anyone is wanting to join another world game, we need more players for "The Red Pill" since people started dropping out. There are currently 7 spots left and the password is matrix.
12 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Argentina]:what's the bet?
12 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Argentina]:i have mad money in play, so nevermind, i can't afford
12 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Europe]:For people who still want to know it's 10 points.
13 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 2009: [China]:I'll be inputting orders in around 7 hours. I won't be around till then. I just didn't want anyone thinking I was going to NMR. If anyone has any correspondence, I'll be answering it around then.
16 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 2010: [Argentina]:I gotta say, all this purple, yellow and red is looking mighty pretty
16 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 2010: [Near-East]:Good everybody thx
17 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 2010: [Western-Canada]:@ Near-East, thanks for fighting until the end and not quitting.
17 Feb 13 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Near-East]:I go in exile in Tibet!
19 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 2011: [Quebec]:I joined the red pill
19 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 2011: [Libya]:Ok, I have no clue why my fleet tried to move to northeast Indian. I don't think I told them too, but maybe I accidently did.
19 Feb 13 UTC Spring, 2011: [Argentina]:Errybody wanted the Northeast Indian
20 Feb 13 UTC [Western-Canada]:Gentlemen, I believe it is time to call for a five way draw. Many of you may remember from my first posts with you at the beginning of the game, I favored a four or five way draw in the end. Well here we are. I think everyone played a great game and deserves a share of the draw. Please vote draw. I look forward to playing with each of you in the future.
20 Feb 13 UTC [Libya]:works for me.

good game y'all!
