OOC: So you want to make it less likely to pass, then? :P I really don't care about people who vote against proposals because they don't like the author. Also, your version doesn't fix the issue, which is the spurious justifications of what makes a war "just", which has been the main comp...

I do hope so. I would recommend the following synthesis of the current proposal with my own draft, which UM is free to use if I am credited as a co-author. UM, we can discuss this further over TG if you'd like. Committed to the pursuit of international peace and security among all World Assembly mem...

Could you clarify why you believe this is covered by past resolutions? OOC: The copyright one. Why do you think it doesn't cover this? Unless you're not talking about copyrighted material at all, in which case you need to change at least your preamble. FCR requires member states to recognize copyri...

OOC: I echo Fauxia's words. Auralia's contributions to NationStates greatly outweigh any momentary lapse of judgement. It takes quite a bit more than a 'momentary' lapse of judgment to multi & submit a self-commend. Now that the vote is over, I'd like to comment on this. I agree it was not a mo...

I really shouldn't have to be presenting information the author should have. Whether this information was not included out of not doing sufficient research on the nominee or willfully ignoring it, I don't know. This particular scenario is rather indicative of the nominee's character, especially whe...

UM, Phydios and others who are similarly minded -- I think our time is far better spent working to prevent would-be persecutors like Maowi from acquiring any real political power than continuing to play a game with people who clearly do not respect us as human beings.

Trollnaming is a post made only to call out a player suspected of trolling. My interpretation of this rule is that the term "trolling" specifically refers to the prohibited behaviour defined in the OSRS as "trolling", and not the broader concept of trolling. I think this is supp...

As the linked quote shows, I clarified that I am not accusing SP of breaking the rules. The word "trolling" can be used a more general sense, not only as the specific behaviour prohibited by the OSRS.

I'm not sure this would be legal even if Reproductive Freedoms were repealed, as On Abortion has a sort of "reverse blocker": 7. INSISTS that all member nations retain the ability to legalize abortion for purposes not covered under the preceding clauses either unilaterally within their own...

This is a trolling attempt, and I have little interest in being manipulated for SP's amusement.

This kind of behaviour is partly why GA culture is so toxic.
