    OK, yes I can see that as a valid and constructive argument, which is countered on religious freedom grounds; something the UK prides its self on. So to do so, you need the get the approval and support of the said religious leaders, within the country. With out this, you have a constant fight on your hands.

    Well, they don't. :) the girls and women who've fallen victim of such practices need help (both medical and psychological), and it must be done with respect and with their safety and well being first. They must not be used as a political tool.

    Which liberal society permits FGM? As far as I know, it's illegal and punishable everywhere that fits that description. It's also not a "muslim" thing, btw. It's an old (barbaric and nasty) folk tradition in certain parts of the world, and needs to be tackled there for what it is. It doesn't come from Islamic teachings. /addition I know your intentions are good with the "burgha ban", but it actually works against the aims that you want to further. The subject it worth a different thread however, one I'll try to start after I've gotten a full nights sleep, unlike currently.

    Meh! So what is the going rate for murder these days? 5.000 credits? So fine me then. Not that I have a clue what this 'Salome' person is all about.

    And I would honestly applaud you. I would disagree on all options being too bad to endorse even as the "least evil", but I'd say that it's a perfectly valid way to signal your disapproval, and vastly better than abstaining from voting.

    This could be helpful. It's often quite illuminating to watch how politicians have voted on issues, rather than listening to what they promise to do in the future

    Republicans and Tories have little else to offer, especially if they wish to appease their main backers. Imagine how a campaign will go if they just said: We are going to cut all public spending to cover tax cuts to corporations. We are going to de-regulate all employment laws and business regulations to encourage unlimited growth.

    I understand the security issues and if you have to ban one kind of face mask, you have to ban them all. However: This impinges on the freedom to protest lawfully without being added to a list of 'trouble makers' etc.. If you join any march these days, against anything backed by the government; you will be filmed and then become marked for life, as a trouble maker. Also, where do we stand, when you consider pollution issues? I see that Japan is not on that list of countries that have some form of ban on face masks. With the growing issues of danger to health in large cities, due to pollution, this question has to be raised. As to the 'oppression of women' issue, it must be counter productive. I say this because if it IS the husbands or fathers demand that she wear such a thing in public; then banning them in public, would mean she cannot leave the house, which is worse, with regards to her freedoms.

    As this is about a French election and the Burqa banning option is in the public domain. What are the grounds for doing so?

    BOOM! Game over. - - - Updated - - - This is a good thread, but has only been about the game and so needs moving away from off topic. - - - Updated - - - You maybe entitled to your opinion and I would fight anyone who tried to stop you voicing it; but you are still wrong.

    No ire. If the rule applies to super powers it something similar should apply to independents too. Otherwise it is skewing results in one direction. based on nothing more than random traffic. My concern is about the players experience. EDIT - The super powers have plenty of tangible BGS effects. Do missions for them and get the most powerful ships in the game is the first that comes to mind.

    Hypothetically; because my decision is of course private. Hypothetically I would vote for the Loony party because; my right to vote has been earned by blood, sweat and tears, throughout history and so I feel obligated to use my right to vote and abstaining is not acceptable. However: I do not believe, after taking the time to research the options, that all the other candidates do not deserve this vote I have. They are all basically the same and out for what they can get etc. etc., so on refection, the Loony party seems to be the most honest out of the lot of them. Secondly: I don't wish to see the Loony candidate to lose their deposit.

    They thrive on fear tactics. I said before, this is the last opportunity because they know that the pain the county is heading for, is all down to them and what they have done. This pain cannot be hidden for much longer.

    Hello Adam. The majority of player faction are independent. Skewing stuff to the super powers is rail roading the game play and also does not make sense. It's not good for the player communities in general especially those who have set -up independent groups and factions because they have no interest in the super powers and want to create their own narrative. The weight towards super powers is basically turning a sandbox in to a one way street with a super power at the destination for any one interested in being independent and defeats the spirit of free from free play. Well that just my observation from what Ive gathered so far. Thank you for your time. o7 Please roll this bias back. Your virtual pal Ben

    Back on topic, I fear Russia will try very hard to effect the results in the next two weeks. At this point I wouldn't be too surprised even by a bomb going off (no suicide attacks tough, you can't pay state actors to die for such a cause afterall). It has been reported that there have been phishing attempts directed at Marcon's campaign officials. What is going on in French language Facebook and Twitter is hopefully being watched and analysed. The key is stopping disinformation and malicious rumours quickly.

    No it wouldn't. I would be interested in hearing why though. - - - Updated - - - The state can take the position that if you obay the law (to the extent we all do, so not perfectly) and try to contrbute, you're welcome here. Nativism is poisonous. One of the nicest, most Finnish people (in the positive sense) I've met was a very dark skinned young bloke. We met on a plane, flying home from England. Spoke very little (perfect local boy accent), and shared the comfortable, easy silence that is the hallmark of my people.

    Nah it predates that (I use a 1070 BTW) by a long streak, it has been happening for years - it is just one of those strange things where the brain pops something up between deciding what to write and actually writing it.

    This is a pretty fair post. The arbitrary things need to be looked at while some aspects do reasonably require some time and I am fine with that.

About Arry

Basic Information

About Arry
Biography:
I'm a dog. A dog was in space long before man had the nerve to venture there.
I am fed and watered by an old feller, who still thinks that playing Elite should be done in the traditional way; via a keyboard, with a P.C. that has to crash every hour or so. So today he is using a Toshiba, satellite pro C660, duel core Intel 1.6GHz CPU, 8 GB of Ram and unknown GPU. No idea of "frame rates" etc.
Rules to play the game this way?
Avoid Star-ports, combat and pressing more that one key at any time. So it feels a bit like using the ZX81, but at least today, he can cough without the system crashing.
His aim in life is to reach Elite, within my lifetime?
Location:
Somewhere near Sol?
Interests:
Bones, chewing up things and spiting them out and the ocational ball licking.
Occupation:
See above?

WOOF! WOOF!

WHAT!? You think I said or did something wrong again? Blame T.j

8 out of 10 Cats, have me on their ignore lists: 5 out of 10 posters; have me on their kill lists?
