Cliche’s Evil Plans

I, as I assume all other active players got this PM from Darth Cliche earlier today:

Rodlen plans to repeal the G-Man rule and start a fourth faction called EEB! I put this in a post, but Rodlen abused his admin powers and removed it!

This is a highly accusatory remark, given that you have no proof of the statement. If it was intended as a joke, I think it was a very poor one as accusing another player of cheating is no laughing matter. If it was serious, then Rodlen is a veteran player here who at least has my respect, and so for now I am giving him the benefit of the doubt, but regardless a PM to the rest of members is no way to resolve a dispute. We have rules for that, and PMs should really only be seen as a last result if someone is blatantly abusing power to prevent you from using the methods outlined in the ruleset.

Secrets don’t make friends, (or particularly good rules, *cough cough*) so can we can ‘sending messages behind other players backs’ and if we have a problem with another player, deal with it like civilized people?

The accusal was serious. Also, it was not an accusal of cheating, since nothing in the rules prevents what he’s been doing.

Also, if a quorum of Citizens agree, I will give out my password publicly, let everyone read the PM I received from Rodlen, then change my password.

You could just request that an admin verify the contents of that one PM


20-12-2008 03:47:45 UTC

Alright. I wonder why Clucky himself didn’t verify it.


20-12-2008 03:48:25 UTC

I admit that the accusal is serious.

I also admit that I abused my admin powers and removed said accusal.  And then stated directly that I abused my admin powers.  At about that point, the post lost all seriousness.

The first part is well within the rules, the second, if true, would be a fine point for a CfJ.  That’s what they are there for.


20-12-2008 03:49:12 UTC

I agree that it lost seriousness at around that time.


20-12-2008 03:56:53 UTC

It wasn’t even that serious in the first place. It was about a fourth faction called EEB.

One that is Definitely Not A Puppet Nation Of The DDA!

Also, Comment #42 was part of the accusal. I also sent Yoda and Syl a different message, which actually quoted your PM.

EEB does not equal DDA, everyone!!! The DDA and EEB leaders say so!

I ended up getting a small handful of PM’s about this from acouple of others with responses to DC.


20-12-2008 04:27:37 UTC

What I don’t get is why Rodlen sent me his plans anyway.


20-12-2008 04:29:53 UTC


Blame Nemesis.

It’s all a Nemesis plot.
