South America Variant
I have no friends. So between my mom and dad and two siblings we play the 5-player South America map. I searched "Diplomacy South America Strategy" and only get Risk results. I am always the first to lose and my parents laugh every time and tell me to make myself useful and do the dishes while they enjoy a game with their real children. Any help?

Diplomacy mentioned in controversial Buzzfeed gaming post
Yes, you read that right. Buzzfeed somehow made a post about gaming controversial.

This is the post: http://www.buzzfeed.com/tomchivers/monopoly-sucks
You'll see that Diplomacy gets high marks.

Are social classes good? And I don't this turning to political discussion, I just want to know whether a concentration of wealth in a select few is good for society as a whole. Have we simply never seen social classes in an unabused system?

Yanik played 177 games in a single year. Yes, he was annoying, but he almost single-handedly kept the traffic to the site at reasonable levels. Let him back.

It's a no-reply. He'll notice next time he tries to log in and find out what happened and then they'll go from there.

Yanik has been banned more times than Draug, may he rest in peace, at this point.

What I have never understood is why meta/no reply are bundled together in the same banned message. If a newspaper reported a local politician had been arrested for pedophilia/speeding there would be a few raised eyebrows.

@Oct obviously he gave no reply to the Meta accusation. It's not an OR it's an AND.

Considering he's been investigated and found innocent (I'm assuming now, but I think a fair assumption) several times now, is it not worth giving him the benefit of the doubt? Does this not cause issues with the games he's in?
TrPrado (461 D Mod)
08 Apr 15 UTC
This is only his second ban (I'm aware because that's how many times my phone has blown up with texts from him about it). The last time he was found innocent, but he this time has accidentally broken a different site rule. Mod policy has been properly implemented. He's given me his reasoning for not replying, but I don't know if I'm allowed to share that with the forum.
bo_sox48 (5202 D Mod (G))

Don't. Just give them a couple of days.

Can you share whether or not he intends to try and return to the site?

Life without possibility of parole is fine by me. I actually had a conversation on this forum years ago in which it occurred to me that the only reason I supported the death penalty in my country was due to the fact that I fully expected it would never be applied to me. That seemed like a poor reason for advocating the death of anyone, so I changed my position on the subject. Removing the person from society is enough in my book.

Life without parole is good. I only endorse the death penalty when the convict can not be adequately detained. Which is pretty rare in the West.

Actually, I am a big fan of the Republic of China (Taiwan), and I refuse to refer to Red China as "China," because the Red Chinese government is an illegitimate representative of the long-suffering Chinese people.

The Chinese people are only beginning to suffer. Their old tradition pre-Mao was a pretty marvelous example of living within the land and within the culture. It's only since that era that they've suffered so massively.

Thoughts on Modern Diplomacy II?
Hello, I'm returning to WebDipWorld after an absence of several years. I am interested to know what the community thinks of this Modern Dip II variant. Is it enjoyable? Fairly balanced? (I don't expect perfection from a variant . . . )

Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
