Winning
Oli won.
On Imperial Civilization's off-topic thread (link inside), there was a brief stint of Second to Last Person to Post Wins. Now that the thread is closed, Oli won.

Advertise your NON-live games here!
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 use brave and presearch.io as search engines and sometimes google.

Idk. My mother had came over talking about a new rightfull blood heir to the thrown, having documents to prove it threw out the queen (she cant be found) and was claiming that all signs pointed to him being the anti christ.... It was crazy to hear but there was a couple of youtube videos in google searches when she was telling me about it but couldnt view them and then everything was gone next day. All seams very nuts and i must find out what the hell

If the Queen had actually been deposed, it'd be front page news on every newspaper, for weeks on end, across the globe. Well, the Anglosphere at least.

I don't want to insult your mother, so I won't, but suffice it to say she's mistaken. The Internet is so vast, so complete, that you can search for any claim and find people claiming to have proof. For example, on a whim I just searched "Jeff bezos is a lizard proof" and was served a bunch of links asserting they had proof that Jeff Bezos is a lizard person.

Jeff Bezos is not a lizard person.

The Internet does not serve up merely the truth. It serves you literally every possible opinion, literally every possible hot take, because in a world of seven billion people, no idea, no theory about the well known people of the world, is new or unique.

Everything you could think about any household name has already been thought before, and someone has cared deeply enough about that thought to rant about it on YouTube. This is especially true for the world's longest serving monarch, a woman old enough to have watched the world go through entire eras, a woman powerful enough to be on the currencies of people that don't even speak her language (probably, I don't care enough to check).

Sounds like some Q-Anon-Bullshit. Qtards still haven't figured out that the whole Q thing was a massive psyop and the things they claim become more and more absurd. I know a guy who literally claims Elivs is Q and Biden is already dead and just a hologram. They already claimed the queen has died some years ago. (Even if there was somebody who would be the real heir to the throne it wouldn't matter as the queen was ritually crowned and nobody cares about the real line of sucession anyway)

I just notice that there is a clip in there of Bezos being interviewed by Henry Blodget.

Does it seem interesting to anyone else that a man acknowledged to be a fraud, who as a legal matter has admitted to being a fundamentally dishonest person, is barred for life from working in finance services, cannot sit for the Bar exam in any state, cannot sit for a CPA exam in any state, cannot work as an insurance agent in any state and could not get a realtors license in any state has seemingly become a prominent and respected journalist in our society?
Mikey99 (2037 D)
30 Jun 21 UTC
I never heard of the guy so I just googled him. His wiki pages mentions his being barred from working in securities but nothing more than that. And it seems he has been a finance writer most of his career. Lizard-man Bezos owns a stake in Blodget's company.

A convicted fraudster cannot become a lawyer. All of those professions involve fiduciary obligations to other people. Those who are established fraudsters cannot be employed in those professions.
gopher27 (1606 D Mod)

But my point was that someone broadly known for personal dishonesty naturally becomes a journalist.

Listing pronouns
One of the pitfalls of online Diplomacy I fall into is that I often don't know the genders of my fellow players and get the pronouns wrong. As far as I'm aware, the site doesn't yet have a feature for us to list the pronouns we use. Maybe we could all start listing the pronouns we use in our profile quotes to cut down on the confusion and ambiguity? I went ahead and put mine there.

Standardized Diplo-Language?
I was wondering if anyone has ever come up with a standard language of diplomacy commands so as to maintain anonymity while playing an anon game among friends. If you're playing with friends, you can tell who is who by how they write. Thanks for any comments or ideas.

Random Idea for variant
I guess this would be tricky to code, but how is this idea for vDip?

During a build phase and where a power has available build capacity, any unit sitting in a supply centre may be boosted by a power of 1, ie, doubled. This unit will require twice the normal ongoing supply maintenance.

VP
Kinda curious on VP... I understand that the gains are lesser as one gets higher, but how does one player (for example) get to over 2000 with under 12 total games and only 1 win? I know its not that consequential in the grand scheme of things. but as I get to a moderately respectable total, the vp gains from a win or draw seem trivial and disproportionate to lost vp when losing. How does VP calculations actually work?
