- Do not post Facebook information about other forum users.

- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create ‘sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.

- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

      Interesting point of view, though I would have probably gone the other way.
      PVPers are mostly the ones howling for change and saying the 'system' is broken.
      Monsters hunters (mostly) are happy with business as usual. Especially if business as usual also infers their 'investments' in FP get them huge advantages over competition.

        And the endless chorus of 'make Health relevant' aka Healthcare Reform. Which kinda makes the Guild battles like Obamacare.

          the only problem is that all my views are extremist =)
          the scale of political wing-ed-ness needs a second axis.

                  I'd agree with all that if from personal experience I hadn't found that most pvpers give way more energy (as a percentage ratio it's so much more it hurts), time and dedication to any monster, share their dinner without quibbles, help old people cross the road even if they're late for work, and that most monster hunters are selfish pigs who piss all over the public toilet rims and steal from everyone when no one's looking, and are all for sharing other people's belongings but certainly not their own, but let's not disillusion anyone.

                  For a bunch of supposedly american republicans, CAL2 functions suspiciously like a communist utopia, but then no one can see us and we can pretend what we want to the world

                    You forget the difference between corporate sponsored hype and reality. Stay in reality and your statement becomes false.

                    Republicans are the taggers - taking credit for the work of others. Driving public roads, protected by government paid for military, police and fire, protected from bad food by the FDA, bad air and water by the EPA, etc., but all the time complaining about how they made it on their own and trying hard not to pay for the benefits which they receive from living in a civilized society.

                    They are also the CC users, trying to get ahead using money rather than hard work.

                        If only any of them did - but I am curious if anyone has any idea of how the Tea Party fits in to this discussion!

                          Defyeler: I follow politics the way I watch grass grow.
                          Captain Ron:This is all that needed to be said..

                          Politics is everything in society. If we can spend god knows how many hours on this game, we can at least keep up with what the politicians are doing and why.

                          This requires a few applicable quotes from "Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars".

                          "The primary reason why the individual citizens of a country create a political structure is a subconscious wish or desire to perpetuate their own dependency relationship of childhood. Simply put, they want a human god to eliminate all risk from their life, pat them on the head, kiss their bruises, put a chicken on every dinner table, clothe their bodies, tuck them into bed at night, and tell them that everything will be alright when they wake up in the morning.

                          This public demand is incredible, so the human god, the politician, meets incredibility with incredibility by promising the world and delivering nothing. So who is the bigger liar? the public? or the "godfather"?

                          This public behavior is surrender born of fear, laziness, and expediency. It is the basis of the welfare state as a strategic weapon, useful against a disgusting public."

                          "Again, most people want to be free to do the things (to explore, etc.) but they are afraid to fail.
                          The fear of failure is manifested in irresponsibility, and especially in delegating those personal responsibilities to others where success is uncertain or carries possible or created liabilities (law) which the person is not prepared to accept. They want authority (root word - "author"), but they will not accept responsibility or liability. So they hire politicians to face reality for them."

                          "The people hire the politicians so that the people can:
                          -obtain security without managing it.
                          -obtain action without thinking about it.
                          -inflict theft, injury, and death upon others without having to contemplate either life or death.
                          -avoid responsibility for their own intentions.
                          -obtain the benefits of reality and science without exerting themselves in the discipline of facing or learning either of these things.
                          -They give the politicians the power to create and manage a war machine to:
                          -provide for the survival of the nation/womb.
                          -prevent encroachment of anything upon the nation/womb.
                          -destroy the enemy who threatens the nation/womb.
                          -destroy those citizens of their own country who do not conform for the sake of stability of the nation/womb."

                            It is only through the deft action of politicians and the government at large that you can ignore politics.

                            In a tribe of 30 people, nobody can afford to ignore the political machinations of other people.

                              The Tea Party in Castle Age are those who claim to be 'attack heavy hybrids' (aka independent voters) but are really PvPers (Republicans) and everybody knows it. They think that Kobo was really born in Kenya and his Alchemy shop business license is a forgery. They also blame everything they hate about Congress on the Shadow Cat (aka Nancy Pelosi).

                              Also they play Castle Age using a dial up internet connection. Still. In the year 2010.

                                So being a Hybrid with BSI and LSI in the same ballpark makes me what? An Independent?

                                Does that make me Ralph Nader of CA?

                                A seat belt on every horse!

                                (If you didn't get that, it's OK, no one did.)

                                On another note I think it's safe to say that CC players are Ross Perot.
