  1. Looks to me like someone didn't bother spending any CP on increasing Issue Familiarity or Debating Skills

  2. I am done. I am done seeing this forum continuously left to locked threads, bad-faith arguments, and constant fighting. I am done seeing people I highly respect being roped into fights with people who have no regard for their arguments, and who would much rather engage in throwing away opposing evidence, refusing to recognize their opponent's points, acting superior to others, and all around being a negative influence on this forum. I am done with every post being a flame war, and I am done seeing flaws in our moderation system exposed through the recent arguments and flame wars on this forum.

  6. Admin needs to focus on his games more than anything. I could care less about what he says on here. I have bought his games because they have much potential to be explored. This genre of gaming has its niche, so It shouldn't be hard to please it.

  7. Something I've noticed - neither of them are particularly good at contextualizing. They both tend to make references to things without really explaining what they're talking about, in a way that may make sense to those of us who follow politics closely but could just confuse people who don't.

  14. President Hollingsworth gives a speech after the death of Hamilton Fellow Countrymen, Our nation emerged from the conflagration of revolution just 17 short years ago. Our form of government has stood for only a decade. As I enter office as your third President, I seek to lead a nation which cannot afford to devolve into rule by bullet rather than by ballot. I should hope to amend the fractures between North and South, Republican and Federalist. Our duty as Americans is to prove our model of government the finest on earth seen since the days of Athens and the Roman Senate. Our duty is

  15. "Keep your comments fact-oriented and if you want to attack, attack an idea, not a user." Keep in mind there are people from various political backgrounds here. The great advantage of a place like this is you get something unusual - many smart, well-informed people from different political backgrounds discussing and analyzing topics. But that comes with a risk - people with politically divergent views often don't have similar values, and can not get along very well. So keep comments focused on facts. If you want to attack, attack an idea, not a user.

  16. So let me ask you guys this. How old are you? 17 years old Do you like Mountain Dew? I used to, years ago, but these days it tastes like toilet water. Have you played Mass Effect? No. Ever been to Arizona? No. Ideal place to live? Portland, Maine, and I plan on moving there after I finish my education Did you vote?(I don't care who you voted for. I'm asking if you voted ) No. Joe Biden isn't worth committing voter fraud over . Preference: Cake or pie? Cake. Especially Ice-Cream-Cake, I have one for my birthday every year.

  19. Unignoring you for a second to respond to this as I saw someone quote you. You've been getting it too easy. Calling him immature and unaccountable is a personal attack in itself, you said he "cries to the admin", earlier today, another personal attack, you frequently use "_______ _____" and stuff in place of insults when we all know what you're trying to say. You say vcczar constantly cries to the admin and doesn't act like an adult when it is you who is doing it. This is one page (of 23) of your post history. You've contributed to the recent toxic culture more than anyone here has

  22. Agreed. I happen to disagree with @PoliticalPundit's analysis, but he's been much more civil than @Patine has been lately. You've got to calm down, man. The personal attacks left and right have got to stop. Look at how @vcczar responded - pointed out a perceived flaw in reasoning and politely explained why he finds that to be an important part of the argument. It's very civil, even though you can tell that @vcczar and @PoliticalPundit are disagreeing. V clearly states he disagrees with the assessment, in fact. Likewise, just the other day I was a clown and thought something was unconstitu

  23. I actually do understand that you’re trying to make a rational argument here, and I appreciate that as it’s a rarity on the internet. But a few things to clarify, as an Iraq War Veteran myself. 1) “The VA” is actually something like 480 different hospitals across the country. Some of them are, indeed, poorly run. The one in Phoenix made national news a couple years ago for being shockingly bad. But most of them are outstanding. In Michigan, for example, the civilian hospitals got immediately overrun with COVID and it was the VA hospitals there who stepped up to save the day by “activ

  24. @admin_270, @The Blood both made professional, courteous, apologies where they didn't blame anyone for what they said or did. I'm glad this was the conclusion to this. Hopefully everyone involved has learned something for this, I know I have. Everyone on this forum is a wonderful person who contributes to the unique culture we have here in their own way. I usually despise talking about politics with people, but with you guys I can do it all day. From @vcczar's leadership, insight, polls, and all-around contribution to @Patine's wittiness, excessive usage of adjectives, and his intelligenc

  25. I don't know how to articulate my points better than to say them outside of a vote. Everyone has the right to their own beliefs and to post them in a free and open manner, including in this forum. That includes the admin, regardless of political view. People can jibe each other, whatever. I admit that I do it as well. But I never will make a personal attack on someone else's intellect, and I thought everyone on this forum was better than that. I learned that I was wrong. I have been on this forum since 2018, and I have never been treated worse than the way I was treated today. It hurts me

  26. I’m back! I had to spend four hours acknowledging the presence of my wife and daughter. It was harrowing. But now on to more important things: mass effect! Age: 37 mountain Dew: I’m not sure if I’ve ever had it. I’m a Coke drinker. Mass Effect: Yes. I was obsessed with the second game — I thought the suicide mission was a masterpiece. My wife still jokes about how heartbroken I was when one of my favorite characters died. Didn’t love the third game as much, but I was still into it. Then I reached the ending...and it was just the WORST. It shit all of the rest of th

  27. Map is below, which is much more critical of Biden's chances than most pundit forecasts. The colors are in Safe, Likely, Leans, and Tilt. If Trump wins all the tilts, then it is a 269-269 tie, which is frightening. I created an algorithm that adjust the avg state polls, attempting to factor in tends in demographic support, trends in polling, trends in economics, approval, favorability, and many more. Basically, the numbers don't matter as much as which way these things are trending overall. One factor that is really helping Trump is that Hispanic support is trending better for Trum

  28. Thoughts from your friend kitten! Very classy start, both men were civil and Trump contained himself unlike other debates that I have seen him involved in. To me it was a strange sight to see but rather welcoming. The moderator did a good job going through question after question and keeping the flow moving. Did Trump kill the debate? No and yes. He certainly fired up his base but that could fire up independents/centrists/moderates that were undecided. Did Biden pull out a win? I say no but he didn't lose because he was the typical Joe Biden that we have seen in debates as

Share some things you're fond of doing outside the forum with the forum I have been an avid MMO player for a while now, and that mostly comes in the form of a (former) child's game called Wizard101. Ive played for 8 years now, and have finally beat the game for the first time I also enjoy reading, I love Game of Thrones (Tully/Tyrell are my favorites), Lord of the Rings, and more. I like to write, whether it be fantasy or RP. Outside of that, I play trombone in our marching and

I like to read a lot. I have a bookshelf overflowing with books. I play video games, not too often tho especially since I've been focusing on university. Final Fantasy is one of my favourites, especially VII and XV. I make scenarios for PI, PMI,CI. If you ever have any scenario ideas, share them with me and we can make them a reality I listen to all sorts of music, especially soundtrack

  38. I enjoy making scenarios frankly. Hence why I got the games originally. I love playing the scenarios afterwards too. I've also learned a lot in scenario making since my first scenario. Y'all should see the wackiness of a scenario I'm making these days But enough scenario talk from me, Expanding to include more electoral options is a dream! I'm tired of FPTP and preferences We need electoral reform! PR and MMP! Heck it'll just make me want to make even more scenarios for all of you guys!

  39. Absolutely, I haven't played the game since 2017-2018 and don't really have any reason or desire to at all anymore. I'm here for the great folks, discussion, and RPs that we do as a community. I love this community, the game and its admin are just an unfortunate side piece of our community. As far as I'm concerned, 270soft forum is for a great community, not a subpar game.

  40. A Swedish group conducted a large-ranging study on political parties and how they've changed over the past 20-ish years, and the drift from pro-democracy standards to illiberal democracies. As you can see, the Republican party moved drastically from the "Democratic Right" to the "Illiberal Right", however they still occupy a range of territory that really isn't seen from other political parties. It is largely the center between the UK Conservative Party and the AKP in Turkey (if a bit closer to the AKP by my eyesight). Meanwhile, the Democrats are largely still in the exact same pla

  46. Last election, my upper middle class Ohio neighborhood was a sea of “lock her up” signs. About a month ago, I noticed that the split between Trump and Biden signs was more 50/50. Well, I just walked through my neighborhood on foot, intentionally counting. And we have a sudden infestation again. 23 Trump sign houses, 7 Biden sign houses (including mine.). Plus two houses that had no presidential sign but just “pray to end abortion”, and one that had no presidential sign but did display a LGBT flag. One trend: A lot of the Trump houses also had signs about supporting the po

  47. I actually don't believe that Republican elected officials are really as passionate about overturning Roe v. Wade as they pretend to be. My reasoning: 1) It's not like they've lacked opportunity. Trump took office with Republicans dominating the White House, the Senate, the House, the Governors, the state legislatures, and the Supreme Court. A 6-3 advantage in the Supreme Court doesn't give you anything that a 5-4 advantage doesn't also give you. They've had every opportunity to overturn Roe v. Wade and they've made no actual, serious effort to do so. 2) I suspect many of them are

I'm not going to weigh in on the "should transgender people serve in the military" as it's not my argument, but just because I saw this, I like to adhere to the quote by none other than Senator Barry Goldwater. "You don't need to be straight to fight and die for your country... you just need to shoot straight." I'll leave it at that.

  49. I am studying at university full-time, by taking courses mainly in history, politics and East Asian studies. I love watching sports and good movies (especially Lord of the Rings and Star Wars), playing video games and collecting various things. Currently I am buying (old) NFL and NBA cards the most. Besides that I like trains, playing chess and reading about the Supreme Court. These are basically the most vibrant of my hobbies. I hardly find a field not interesting as you can see on my full chart on the left... I didn't even mention the NASA, mathematics or (classical) music.
