I dunno if TRF finds this annoying or if they appreciate the free bumps they are getting out of this.

Ebil West Leas Oros! That's what the terrorist want! You are facilitating the spread of their message!
Strong sarcasm involved. Comparing IRL terrorism with a function of the game. That's just distasteful.

And you were close—we do raid purely on ideological grounds! Because it’s okay to be political on a political browser game.

True, but raids should have a reason aside from simply being an opposing ideology. There needs to be a justification. For instance, if the region attacked you first. Or if it raided an ally. Or if it has been attacking innocents (Which you have done before).

Mine is pretty much “founderless? Stupid userites.”

TRF’s political justification is fine, a bonus if they hit Nazi regions.

Admiralty Board Statement on TRE


As comrade Leslie Feinberg wrote all the way back in 1996:
In order to understand the lives of people who have passed as another sex in any direction, it must be remembered that trans people have always existed, but were once viewed with respect as vital, contributing members of our societies.

We have not always been forced to pass, to go underground, in order to work and live. We have a right to live openly and proudly. When we are denied those rights, we are the ones who suffer that oppression. But when our lives are suppressed, everyone is denied an understanding of the rich diversity of sex and gender expression and experience that exist in human society.

I have lived as a man because I could not survive openly as a transgendered person. Yes, I am oppressed in this society, but I am not merely a product of oppression. That is a phrase that renders all our trans identities meaningless. Passing means having to hide your identity in fear, in order to live. Being forced to pass is a recent historical development.

It is passing that is a product of oppression.

The behavior of the leadership of TRE, as revealed by The Black Hawks, is despicable.

We stand in solidarity with our LGBTQ comrades and our Black comrades against bigotry and hatred, and we will continue in our own communities to make sure that they are places where people of any race and all gender identities can feel safe and loved.

We are pushing for a full blacklist against The Roman Empire, Festavo, and Plagentine in our particular sphere of interest—anti-fascist action—and are inspired by the solidarity of organizations and regions doing the same in their own spheres of gameplay.

"At the risk of seeming ridiculous, let me say that the true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love. ... We must strive every day so that this love of living humanity will be transformed into actual deeds, into acts that serve as examples, as a moving force."

Pax ignescens!

I'm glad to see that players at least are standing up against threats and harassment. Still it's a bit odd to hear this coming from TRF, and especially Misley, given their history.

I lost my main nation after falsifying telegrams. And not even in a way that implied the fake telegrams would have been rule-breaking if they were real.

I don't see how this is remotely comparable, except to bring up my history in a salacious way to imply that I lost my main nation because of out-of-character behavior as utterly reprehensible as is the case here.
