I'd like to take this opportunity to point out that while NationStates has not had any swatting threats on-site (that we are aware of), should such threats occur they will be dealt with harshly like any other threat. Carry on. --The Modified Democratic States of Cogitation "Think about it for a...

There were two nations named "Dysnomia", both of which died of inactivity different numbers of years ago. You'll need to be more specific. [edit] Oh, wait, you meant your puppet "Eris I Dysnomia". This post constituted a violation of the ban issued against you. You were deleted f...

Okay, but seriously, there was a minor technical glitch that admin was able to quickly address, once they were alerted to it. It shouldn't recur, and we're now back to normal operation.

If this seriously distresses you, I recommend an overdose of barbiturates to solve your problems. Wishing death on someone is normally a 1-day forumban offense for someone with a clean record.
