I've really enjoyed playing variant-specific tournaments such as the Known World 15x15 currently underway.

Quote Association Thread
Hello! I saw a thread like this scrawled on the wall of a Guatemalan insane asylum deep in the jungle primeval. We start with a quote, and you then post the one quote that pops into your mind after you read that quote. The first word is FIRST.

“The key to Springfield has always been Elm Street. The Greeks knew it. The Carthaginians knew it. Now you know it.”

In an effort to compromise the pro-ads versus anti-ads for games: Post here for your non-live games to cut down on the number of ads but still advertise games. Post game link, WTA or PPSC, and the bet. Note: this doesn't count for special rules games.

I agree. These guys have a legitimate thread that they can knock themselves out on. They should keep their activity to that. I for one agree wholeheartedly with YCHTT and drano. I don't want vDip's threads being turned into dung heaps like webDip. Action is needed as they have ignored what was asked of them to keep their discussions to their thread. Mods?

My father ran a bakery on 35th and Main. When the draft came through, he took up his arms and fought. My pa charged the enemy with all intentions for a better life for his family, his country, and his nation. He crawled through barbed-wire, trudged through the littered remains of his fallen brothers in arms. My father wanted only the best for himself and our country. He only wanted the right thing. And when the world lost him, we lost more than a man. We lost the greatest father I could've ever imagined, the most generous businessman known to the Bronx, and the kindest soul east of the Mississippi. My father died believing that after all the hardships and all the torment he'd been through, he'd make a better world for us all. He did what no other man could. And I think the world of him. But look at you. You disgust me. You have the nerve and the guile to impend upon the very rights that my father died to uphold. You disgrace his name. And not just him, but every soldier who's ever fought to protect their nation, and every patriot who's looked out from a mountain in awe, and every mother raising her kids in hopes of a better life. You bring shame on them all. The honor that every father has passed down to his children and them, to their children, has been wasted on you. You not only fight against our rights, you fight our very beliefs. And let me tell you something pal. I do not take kindly to such threats. Me and my boys, we'll be looking for ya. You can laugh this off as just another aimless threat that you repeatedly find on the world wide web. But today, son, you crossed a line, and that line has determined a lot more than what you do in the next half hour. This is life or death baby. The boys are back in town and Frankie and I'll have a little treat for you. Kiss whatever few people love you good bye, because we're moving. We're heading out. And we ain't coming for a simple game of Uno. Nah, we ain't about that pal. This is real Monopoly.

Do not call the Police. they can't help you now.

First, freedom of speech is a restriction on the government, not a private organization. So your diatribe don't mean shit. I served my country for those same freedoms including the freedom to ignore fucktards like you and the HQDs. Mute. Bam!

Love that people don't get that freedom of speech doesn't mean you can say whatever you want with no consequences. Sure, freedom of speech applies here, but so does the right of a private organization to mute or ban someone who's being an ass like the HQDs are with their threads.

Y'all have less sense of humor then a funeral. I'm joking. And why am I being muted for literally one post on one forum ever. That's a bit absurd. And the fact that you are muting me for trying to lighten your dark lives really says something about yourself. If you fought for our country that's great. I never actually said anything about freedom of speech. In fact, in the end of my message, I was talking about Monopoly. The fact that you're judging me on a joke I posted once and only once is a fallacy in and of itself. Anywho, have fun muting like thirty people, because that's the easiest way to do it.

@Woodsman - There hasn't been a need to mute 30 people until this past month. It gives the feeling like a bunch of European soccer hooligans just entered the site and are trying to create as much chaos as possible. That's not us guys. If you want that, find somewhere else to do it. A joke is one thing, but spamming the message boards like they have been doing is really getting out of control.

@Samj why are you going off on woodsmans? over the past 3 months i've seen him comment about three things (not including this thread) what he;s saying i think is that some people just need to simmer and do what other people do and...............
IGNORE OR MUTE IT! like really that's what the button is there for

@Kenpai, you call that going off on someone? You must live a sheltered life.

Thu 18 May UTC
Yeah Samj really wasn't going off on woods I concur, and if he had I would have agreed with him. Someone making a post complaining about our spam and then someone spamming it is not a great move to make...

Also, different topic, in case it was unclear, woodsman's spam was something stupid about Monopoly and doesn't need a serious response about the first amendment or free speech. Just clearing that up
I've just muted all the HQDs and had evidently muted Kenpai already.

New Thread Idea
Does anyone know Polish History? Did The Deluge cause such material damage that it doomed Poland to economic and political death spiral, did it devastate the proto-bourgeois, densely populated Northwest at a key moment within a republic when it was fighting with the rural, agrarian South and East thus stunting an incipient movement towards urbanization and development or did it not really have any long term effect?
