Game drawn
16 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1999: As a Mexican Canadian, I allege it is not a stereotype, it is what actually happens. We apologise when we walk into lampposts too.
16 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1999: Once, my brother dropped his spoon and apologized to the spoon for dropping it and to the floor for hitting it.
16 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1999: Your brother sounds like son-in-law material.
16 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1999: You're wanting to set my brother up with your daughter? Hahaha. Surely, your daughter could do better than my little brother.
16 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1999: Moderator: (TrPrado): This game has been unpaused
20 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1999: Hey Jeffie, hey Treeby, I'm fairly sure I speak for the rest of the riffraff when I say it would go a long way if youseguyz would press the READY button.
20 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1999: And to our Canadian friends at the top of the world. Greetings. And here we thought Canadians were pacifists. Especially you westcoasters. You're supposed to be too high in every sense of the word to care about anything. BC, Québec, you do know that Greenland isn't really green. Its just a Danish real estate scam - false advertising - propaganda.
20 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1999: Yes, pressing Ready would be sweet if you aren't waiting on correspondence.
21 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 2000: Ooh.. And here I thought you were illiterate. My bad.
22 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 2000: Man, the disses in this chat are being legendary.
22 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 2000: You call it false advertising, I call it free real estate. Because Stonks
22 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 2000: Stonks???
22 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 2000: Just Google it, Boomer
22 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 2000: Boomer? Hey, I be waay older than that. I be of the 'teeth in the glass' generation. You know, the ones that always smell bad, no matter what.
22 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 2000: And I looked it up and I still don't get it. Hey Frenchie!!! Do you have a speech impediment? Are you unable to pro-noun-ce the wo-rd ST-OXS? Is the 'cks' diphthong too difficult for you? If it is, we all understand. You're Canadian and we all have to make allowances for what those northern winters do to your brain cells.
22 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 2000: I'm glad you understand the brain cell thing, but it will be hilarious when a Canadian with the IQ of 60 defeats your Mexican scum
22 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 2000: Have you every seen our polluted rivers. Scum is exactly the right word. But I caution you; scum floats, and is a itch and an alf to get rid of.
22 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 2000: And on that friendly note...
22 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 2000: As we approach the close of the calendar year, I would like to take this opportunity to extend my warmest wishes for a healthy, happy, safe, and prosperous holiday season and new year to one and all, and to all of your loved ones too. Win, lose or draw, I would like to thank each and every one of you for the hours of pleasure you provide by playing Diplomacy with/against me. G-d bless us all.
22 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 2000: CHAOS REIGNS
22 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 2000: also yeah what he said
22 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 2000: You guys junt went from an intense shit-talking match to heartwarming holyday messages......man I love this group
22 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 2000: I feel all warm and fuzzy now
23 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 2000: Ooh. Maybe they all fell for it!!! DUCK DUCK DUCK - did I say that in global chat?
23 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 2000: Y'all just fling to ignore Hawaii? That's prime real estate folks!
23 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 2000: Going*
23 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 2000: My dear waterlogged compadré. Not all is as it seems.
23 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 2000: I'm not about to let myself get overstretched again
23 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 2000: Again? Have you tried Botox? It did wonders for my sister's octogenarian 'friend'.
23 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 2000: I hear it can be used to stifle excessive perspiration as well.
23 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 2000: What would the rest of you say to pausing this game for the rest of the week. I, for one am going to be MIA because of the holidays, but I would prefer to keep this game going and not be kicked. We could potentially unpause it this Saturday if all things go well.
23 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 2000: 2 days is a really generous clock, but if you can't check in at all then I guess I'm fine with a pause.
23 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 2000: I'm really sorry guys, but I don't want to lose any reliability because of holidays.
23 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 2000: Sounds fine to me
23 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 2000: sure
24 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 2000: Don't worry man, take your time.
24 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 2000: Moderator: (Aurelin): Paused for a week
31 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 2000: Moderator: (Aurelin): Unpaused. Have fun!
01 Jan 20 UTC Autumn, 2000: Please be aware that I am in Toronto with family for the day, after which I will be driving from Toronto back to Montreal. The likelihood of me receiving your messages/pleas for succour/requests for sage advice and insightful 2021 stock market picks risk not be read any time soon. We regret any inconvenience this might cause but the real world trumps all.
02 Jan 20 UTC Autumn, 2000: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.

12 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 2002: Good morning all. The holidays are now over and real world responsibilities are pressing in from all sides. Time is once again an extremely precious commodity. You will see that I've already pressed DRAW. I respectfully request that rather than try for a solo, once your minimum threshold has been reached, that the top rung players please agree to bring this game to an end. I look forward to playing with and against all of you again in December 2020. Good luck.
14 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 2002: If everyone presses/clicks "Ready" then the game will advance before the time runs out. Moves things along quicker if you weren't aware, no worries if you like taking the full time though.
18 Jan 20 UTC Autumn, 2002: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
