Was reviewing my posts and realized today marks one year since I arrived in GI, though it has hardly felt that long. I’d like to thank everyone for their help over the past twelve months.

Let’s have another good year, GI groupies.

I do believe the current policy is to tolerate current mentions of IRL religions in already extant issues, but not to allow further mentions in future issues.

Kurnugia wrote:What does "Death by disappearance" imply? Is it like a forced disappearance or?

If yes, is there an issue for nations that have disappearance as a death cause?


Yes, it’s the government making you dissappear. Quickly shoved into a black SUV and never seen again, and all that.

Against. The proposal does not leave me convinced that the nominee is worthy of attention from the Security Council. I would suggest expanding the last clause of the resolution, in order to make the reason(s) why a condemnation is needed more clear. However, I feel that going forward and actually do...

As I see it, it runs right up to the line when it comes to verisimilitude, but doesn’t quite cross it.

I agree with Baggieland.

I’d have someone else, someone whos credibility isn’t shot for allegedly leaking government secrets and probably with authority call for changes to the system.

Someone other than the person CCO/Intern, who is probably not taken seriously anymore.

I think the premise is muddy. A muddy premise muddies pretty much everything else, and makes writing options more diffucult for you, the author. So let’s try and lower the difficulty level. The meat of the premise comes in the last sentence. The reliability of the polygraph is under scrutiny. Can yo...

My thinking was that if courts were abolished, the use of pretrial release, meaning bail or bail bonds, or any conditional release program that would ensure a detainee comes to court, would also be eliminated, since you no longer have judges or trials. This means that very low level offenders and pe...
