I know acting like an uninformed shitposter is your shtick, Tupe, but maybe once in a while you should give it a rest.

But we're talking about SPSF, no one mentioned TBH at all. Take your own advice ;)

I was also confused about that, not that I'd be averse to having potential access to SPSF's update force ;)

This is the kind of narrow-minded thinking that lead to tag raiding taking over the game.

When I read poorly constructed criticism of raiding, it's normally directed at TBH, so I mentioned them by accident. It's obvious I was talking about the SPSF, same as Tupe was. My slip-up is clearly different than deliberately comparing nice orgs to The Invaders out of ignorance, but sure DYP.

(It's a weird situation when I'm verbally defending TSP)

Good evening.

I'd like to protest several elements of your pending proscription of me.

I'll begin by laying out a few relevant bits of information from your public forums.




The following regions and individuals will be immediately proscribed. The criteria mentioned below relate to Article 1 of the Proscription Act, which lay out the Acts of Hostility that establish eligibility for proscription.

Ever-Wandering Souls of The Black Hawks (criteria 1, 3, 4)
A)Outright considers TSP an enemy force as-is
B)Attempted to manipulate the SPSF in 2016 by using unrelated incidents to get Imki
C)Is the singular reason why TWP proscribed his entire region, relating to ill-suited conduct during a joint raid.
D)Is the singular reason why TEP (an ally) proscribed his entire region, relating to blackmailing the EPSA military commander
E)Sensitive intelligence suggests he has conspired, or is conspiring to, overthrow the Coalition and "cleanse" it.


lettering added by me for reference.

Proscription Act
An Act to grant authority to declare hostile persons or organizations prohibited from entering or residing in the Coalition
1. Acts of Hostility

(1) Any individual, region or organization that was or is actively involved or complicit in an attempt, successful or otherwise, to illegally overthrow the legitimate government of The South Pacific or its allies and partners, shall be considered hostile.

(2) Any individual, region or organization that has coordinated to exploit, manipulate, or unduly influence elections or votes in The South Pacific, or its allies and partners, on behalf of a foreign region or organization shall be considered hostile.

(3) Any individual, region or organization that has engaged in or has attempted to engage in coordinated espionage against The South Pacific or its allies and partners shall be considered hostile.

(4) Any individual, region or organization that has or has attempted to sabotage military operations of The South Pacific, outside of normal raiding and defending dynamics, shall be considered hostile.


(5) Any individual that is an agent acting on behalf of a foreign region or organization to the detriment of The South Pacific shall be considered hostile.





I have several issues with the content of the proscription, which I will address thoroughly.




>Even taken at face value, item A is more relevant to the region The Black Hawks, as "The South Pacific is considered hostile in terms of Gameplay by The Black Hawks" is a statement of formal TBH position, not particularly of my personal views. It's odd, therefore to see it applied only to me, unlike later line items in this proscription list which are applied to entire invader regions.

>Item A does not, as far as I can tell, carry any inherent violation of Proscription Act lines 1, 3, or 4, as cited. It does not include any attempt to overthrow the government, "sabotage the military outside of normal R&D dynamics," or particularly acting to the detriment of the region. It is merely a statement of how we classify your military in terms of Allied, Opposed, or Other.




>Item B (besides being an incomplete, nonsense sentence, I can only assume) is nonsense. As Discussed Previously, concerns regarding the at the time pending possibility of TBH and the SPSF working together were raised with their military leader at the time, who then validated said concerns, apologized, and said the causes for concern would not happen again. I know that Roavin has enjoyed twisting that interaction for years now, but I continue to be happy to share the actual content of that conversation to easily disprove the more salacious claims stemming from it.

>Item B again does not, as far as I can tell, carry any inherent violation of Proscription Act lines 1, 3, or 4, as cited. Assuming the intended relevant section is section 4, then even ignoring that characterizing that interaction as an "attempt to manipulate the SPSF" is incredibly disingenuous, discussion of concerns re:potentially working together, and what would be required on behalf of the SPSF for TBH to consider such, are entirely within "normal raiding and defending dynamics." Such conversations occur on an absolutely regular basis.




>Items C and D refer to proscriptions which never once had any formal reasoning cited on record, and assign them reasons.

>The proscriptions mentioned in items C and D have both been revoked by their issuing organizations, without further public explanation.

>I'd love to dispute the claims being made in items C and D. As was requested of the regions in question many times without delivery, details specific claims there and I'll be happy to counter them. Item D, "blackmail," is particularly disingenuous. Whether you're referring to GreyGhost (who was the deputy MOFA during most of these incidents, afaik) or Elfin, I doubt either would still be my friends today if I'd had a habit of blackmailing them.

>Yet again, and particularly strongly in this case, I see absolutely no way in which Items C and D, even taken at face value, are relevant to "criteria 1, 3, 4" of the Proscription Act. Neither accuse me of attempting to overthrow the governments of any allies of TSP, or of committing espionage against them.




>Item E, as with Item A, taken at face value should apply to the region, not to me as an individual. I do not generally individually conspire to overthrow any regions, but rather organize operations on behalf of The Black Hawks. And, to additionally note, Rai has been head of the Talon Division of TBH for quite some time, placing him in charge of any and all TBH sleeper operations, infiltration, etc etc. My roles in Terra Division are mainly technical these days, mucking with forum conversion and recruitment namely.

>I'd love to see evidence of this item. As far as I know, I'm not currently orchestrating any large or small scale efforts with the aim of overthrow the government of TSP, or even like, influencing votes there, or hell even just to make anyone there particularly ill and annoyed. I've enjoyed rumors of y'alls internal politics being a toxic mess recently, but that's about as far as my catharsis against your region has gone.

>At least this line is actually relevant to the Proscription Act.




Despite how honored I am to top your list of pending proscriptions, compared to the solid facts delivered in your other proposed prescriptions, I'm left feeling disappointed at best. Particularly in the relevancy to the actual proscription act, given that only one of the five claims made even is relevant to it, and said claim relies on "Sensitive intelligence" not detailed, rather than on generally solid facts named in your other pending items. If you're going to ban me from my original native home, but also from a place which I have not set foot in as a member since Milograd ejected me years ago, I would appreciate it if you at least laid some solid groundwork for doing so.
