Why are they apologizing? Their members committed hostilities against a treatied ally of numerous military partners of theirs. TBH basically can't survive without the updaters and pilers from unaligned militaries that they rely on. Instead of being the raiders we all know and love (or hate), they'r...

I feel like the Pointing Out clause isn't really needed - seems to me the focus would be better just on "they have reformed, and thus pose no further threat" as the other clauses do.

2 - I'm open to other names for this rule. I dislike the word "metagaming" in the SC, but only because it's one we've not really used before (it was always a GA term). If you flip the ordering on 2a and 2b, 'Real World References' would probably be close enough + obvious to new people, si...

You're thinking from the perspective that the actual actions were authorized by Council in the first place. In seventeen years of NS, I'm not sure there's ever been an attack on a GCR that's ever been officially authorized. Were any of the other attacks on TSP by TBH authorized by Council? I'm not ...

I can't say I at all check the Twitter pages of celebrities, even those I really like.

I can't say I pay attention to things celebrities do in general, which certainly seems to make life easier

What exactly are we defining as the "left" here? The Democratic Party, I think. More or less, plus the independents farther to the left or the independents more towards the middle. Either way, the figure is something like 65% of people who say they're Democrats also say they're Christian ...

Point of information, none of the actions involving voting in TSP's WA debates were ever condoned or discussed by the Council of Hawks prior to said actions occurring.

Once we were made aware by a third party, we found those involved and they were berated for said actions.

That article it also notes that the Pope has said masturbation is not a sin. Catholics, is this true/not true? Not true. And regardless, he doesn't have the power to make it not so anyway.

Not in general probably (as typically food is simply not harvested, based on other sources, rather than generically thrown out), but your specific article specifically said that they did. That says for the most part that they don't (or can't) harvest it for cost reasons, which is a different proble...

Here's the problem: Billionaires have lots of money. But they don't have Scrooge McDuck money pits full of gold coins. Most of the richest peoples' stuff is based on things like stocks. That means that a lot of their money is essentially trapped in ice. They can't just "give money" becaus...
