    The current nodelist shows there are about 20 systems in R20.

    So, my statement really becomes: Do you think all 20 of those

    three candidates, without any "encouragement" from Beorn?

    Yes, my mistake. Wasn’t paying proper attention.

    As the RC, I would think that guiding those sysops is his prerogative. But if he’s voting without their input, that’s not good.

    If it's one of the BMW bridges, that I've crossed over and under many times, I doubt that you can sell it to anyone but an ignorant, US Las Vegas investor.

    Maybe some Russian oligarch will still be interested. Just don't expect to be paid though...

    Honestly I don't think there's ANY chance that all of them wanted to

    he voted without any input from them, which is actually allowed, but
    the bold-faced lie is the issue here. Oh well. Who's surprised?

    Guiding, perhaps. Convincing them of what they should choose due

    The more likely answer is that there was no consultation done.

    But if he's voting without their input, that's not good.

    It's certainly "legal" as per P4, but not a good practice, in.....
    practice.

    Damn it, Dan! Stop making me agree with you! (o_-)
    (So glad we're both done with that initial bs, btw. It's far more fun when we get along.)

    I will first say that neither of us were part of R20's internal deliberations, and we cannot be certain what went on 'behind closed doors'. Having said
    that, you're correct in saying that lying about it would be a pretty big
    issue, and also pointless.

    I choose to give Bjorn the benefit of the doubt here, though. I have not seen him lie in the past, so I have no reason to suspect it here. But, (as you were quick to point out on Day One) I am very new here! I have not had the chance
    to experience the full gamut of every participant's personality.

    I begin to wonder if this is, perhaps, a good thing. Surely, not everyone is
    as evil as his opponents would say? (o_O)

    Do you think anyone actually believes that?

    I'm pretty sure he's the only person in the region.

    In Z1 it's quite easy and straightforward to consider another region within the same zone because up to a high degree it is the same playing field ... culturally, linguistically, historicaly. Yeah yeah yeah Canada, Texas, ...

    Move to another zone such as Z2 and every region is a different country or set of countries, most likely there are different languages all over the place, different cultures and they were eachother's foes to the death not really that long ago. It's very diffult to judge what goes on in a different region, even if you display the knowitall-attitude as you do .... and Dan .... and Shaun.... I would even say 'especially' with that knowitall-attitude...

    My own region R29 Belgium has Dutch/Flemish as its language and 22km from here (13.7 miles) is the Netherlands, also speaking Dutch and while technically it should be easy, both sides agree that that's already enough to create confusion. So you and those other 2 dudes claim you know what goes on in Scandinavia?

    For the record, R20 consists of 3 countries with different languages and cultures .... If you want to get on Bjorn's back because you doubt he polled his region, then try to answer this question ... how many RCs do you think did poll their region one way or the other?

    I even know about RCs who did not poll their region and do not vote either ... Plenty reasons to get upset if that's what you intend to become ...

    Hey, Ward? Feel free to go fu--um...'have sex with'...yourself at any time!
    You can't call it attitude if I really *do* know it all! (^_^)

    I have always claimed the opposite! (@_@) More than once, I've said 'I don't really know what it's like in Europe.'

    However, here in Z1, we are divided into regions by border, just like it's
    done in Z2, as far as I'm aware. Not *our* fault that there's only one
    computer in all of Whogivzafukistan...

    For the record, R20 consists of 3 countries with different languages and cultures .... If you want to get on Bjorn's back because you doubt he polled his region

    In a previous message, I actually defended Bjorn; I'm a little surprised that you ignored that. It does no good at all to pick and choose which facts
    to ignore.

    then try to answer this question ... how many RCs do
    you think did poll their region one way or the other?

    I definitely don't know the answer to that question, and neither do you. I do know that my RC asked me and everyone else in my region for opinions. And
    you know the same (or opposite) for *only* yours. I cannot speak for R20 any more than you can.

    It's not 'knowitall attitude' if everyone knows it.

    I even know about RCs who did not poll their region and do not vote
    either ... Plenty reasons to get upset if that's what you intend to
    become ...

    That's a different topic entirely, and not one I wish to get into.

    Ah, no. Me thinking that a representative should check with their sysops isn't being a know it all. They can literally just email or netmail with each other. It's really not complicated.

    I have ZERO doubt that many (most?) RCs did not poll their region and
    submitted their vote. Some did, probably. Many don't even vote,
    obviously, so therefore wouldn't bother polling their sysops.

    The main point that I made earlier was that I think Bjorn *LIED* about
    his vote. He said that his R20 sysops *UNANIMOUSLY* voted to *ABSTAIN*
    on *ALL* *THREE* candidates.

    Now seriously, do you actually believe that claim? Put aside your old crony-ism and the fact that he's your buddy, and give me your HONEST
    opinion on that claim. Do you REALLY believe he polled his 20 or so
    sysops, and they ALL independently came up with the idea of abstaining
    on ALL THREE candidates?

    Come on man, let's try to at least be HONEST once in a while, eh?

    Put aside your old crony-ism and the fact that he's your buddy, ...

    You rwally believe that Khrap?

    Do you REALLY believe he polled his 20 or so sysops, ...

    Yups ... perhaps you need to clarify what "polling" is ... If an RC writes in a sysop-echo "This is happening and this will be my intended vote" and nobody responds while they all are "Live", then that is pretty unanymous to me ...

    Yups ... perhaps you need to clarify what "polling" is ... If an RC
    writes in a sysop-echo "This is happening and this will be my intended vote" and nobody responds while they all are "Live", then that is pretty unanymous to me ...

    "unanimous"...sorry...I truly am a 'grammar Nazi', at least in english...

    Also, abstentions don't count, remember? Perhaps these SysOps are
    simply abstaining? (o_O)

    Wait, isn't that exactly what Bjorn just did?

    Yeah, I figured you'd come up with that kind of "logic" as an explanation.

    I'm not sure why I even bother trying to talk to you two. I'm about
    done wasting my time.

    The main point that I made earlier was that I think Bjorn *LIED* about
    his vote. He said that his R20 sysops *UNANIMOUSLY* voted to *ABSTAIN*
    on *ALL* *THREE* candidates.

    This does seem doubtful, to an outside observer. And any defense
    of this, that doesn't also come from Bjorn himself, should also
    be doubted.

    It's more than doubtful, it's VERY likely to be true. Nearly 100%
    probability that it's true.

    Yes, any defense other than from Bjorn is completely useless. Especially
    from his decades-long cronies. To be completely truthful, I would have
    ZERO confidence in anything further that Bjorn would say about it. Pretty
    sure we won't hear another word from him about it, anyway.

    Not much I dislike more than a liar.

    Come on man, let's try to at least be HONEST once in a while, eh?

    'Honestly', I'm surprised you didn't blast him for the
    'knowitall' remark, as I did, and another...

    I didn't bother, because I saw those comments for what they were:
    A diversion tactic to shift focus away from the point I was trying
    to make (that Bjorn lied about his vote). Pretty standard practice
    from both of these guys, that I've learned to easily pick up on.

    In this case, *and this alone(o_O)*, you are better than I, sir.
    You set an example that I should have followed.

    Well, maybe. Perhaps just more experience with these folks who will
    generally not answer a direct question, and will instead try to divert attention and start a new flamefest so that the original point of the conversation is lost and forgotten.



    ... A conclusion is simply the place where someone got tired of thinking.

    Well, since we're being honest and all...(o_O)

    I really tried my best to disagree with you. I did not like the tone at all. But...

    generally not answer a direct question, and will instead try to divert attention and start a new flamefest so that the original point of the conversation is lost and forgotten.

    I find that very long description slash run on sentence with not nearly enough punctuation, oh my god who writes like this certainly not me wait im actually doing it right now.

    to be a little too accurate... -_-'

    Couldn't find anything else to pick at, so I went with grammar. ~\(^_^)/~

    Shaun,

    We stopped doing that when the one whose name we're not supposed to mention, kicked the bucket.

    If you want to go with grammar, spelling, puntuation for one, then you should do it for "all" and then that's what you'll do during your Fido-days for the rest of your life.

    Dan,

    Now seriously, do you actually believe that claim?

    Absolutely ... Those Swedes, these Finns and the fearsome Dane are a constituency to behold.

    Put aside your old crony-ism and the fact that he's your buddy, ...

    Bjorn my buddy? Under which flat stone have you been hiding ... after all th names that I called him?

    You rwally believe that Khrap?

    Do you REALLY believe he polled his 20 or so sysops, ...

    Yups ... perhaps you need to clarify what "polling" is ... If an RC writes i sysop-echo "This is happening and this will be my intended vote" and nobody responds while they all are "Live", then that is pretty unanymous to me ...

    Yeah, I was laughing too at you and Bjorn being 'buddies'. Ah well, too off topic here.
