Re: Trump presidency

Once again, there's exactly zero reason to believe there was ever any intention to send or receive any classified information on the private email server. The spillage is a separate issue which would have been just as much of an issue on a state.gov account. I'm not saying the spillage wasn't techni...

Re: Trump presidency

I realize I'm tilting at windmills, but I'll try again: - Clinton's use of a private email server was terrible opsec, it wasn't illegal. - Had the spillage that occurred done so on state.gov accounts, it would have broken exactly the same rules and been just as bad. - Please don't misunderstand me, ...

Re: Wheel of Time 2 - The White Tower (D6)

Thanks for the game, all. It was kind of a brutal setup for my first go as a mafioso, but them's the breaks. I tried to deal with it by sticking as closely as I could to my town play, but boy did that bite me on the rear a couple of times. Out of curiosity, Sabrar, did you vote for Diemo on D1 becau...

Jude, I think it'd be better to lynch ahippo rather than SirGabriel. Either way it will confirm, but if they are Siuan, I'd rather lynch the supporter than Siuan herself.
