snip I have nothing against Balder at all, this whole conversation is better directed towards the Minister of Foreign Affairs but you've presumed to involve yourself. There was nothing factually incorrect about my comment, you just jumped at another chance to hammer your poor innocent keyboard. If ...

You may be asking the wrong question. Ask if you're persona non grata there.

To confirm, I took the original question as intending to cover that, so the answer is the same.

As much as I disagree with the leadership of Balder on almost everything, why in the world is everyone seizing upon a completely non-controversial foreign update to roast them? Give it a rest. The foreign update had election results that helped to validate certain criticisms of Balder. That is why ...

On the contrary, that is a logical failure on your part to distinguish between sufficient and necessary elements. You're confusing exclusivity here with sufficiency. Transparency is not a sufficient condition of democracy, it is a necessary condition. The NPO's public display of the Civil Code does...
