    Experienced in what?
    Really, I loath anyone like him who barges in and expects to be made something important, and then gets what he wants, while at the time acting like a total jerk to some people. (I have enough of those people already in my life, don't need another)... Really nice guy, it seems...
    He earned his way about 2 years ago... That's the past, and I really don't care about the past much. Also, in a way you're contradicting yourself with the "earning" thing

    Wow... nice on changing the subject like that. That's totally different than something like an important position at the hive workshop

    i meant, he doesnt have to re-earn what he already has. in ralles eyes he is a great guy, you might hates his guts but it isnt really your concern. what i mean is, you are entitled to an opinoin but you cannot say he does not deserve it! its like me telling you not to get married because i dont like your girlfriend..who the hell am i to say that? fact is, he doesnt have to justify himself to you. all i want you to do is forget about it, i assure you that Malufa is a great guy and maybe if you start again you will like him.

    Just to get back on topic --

    I'd have to agree that peace would only bring a radical an opportunity to start war.

    As for the Nazi's, as far as I know, NAZI is the acronym for the German wording of the "National Socialist Workers Union" party. I know, anyways, that the Nazi party evolved from them.

    Doesn't seem like that much of a radical fascist party after all, eh? :p

    No they don't at all... but as we all found out, the name doesn't give justice to the actions...

    offtopic: supa, Malufa deserves to be a super-moderator a helluva lot more then you do, so shut it. He proved himself, he's a great, great, guy. He's an experienced and talented map maker, he is very smart, and he's a nice guy when you get to know him.

    PS Only those who suck the balls at English think that spelling and grammar are unimportant on the internet. Do you want to look professional, or do you want to look like some dip-shit that can't spell to save his own freaking life. Your choice, moron.

    I never said I wanted to be a super-moderator, probably the last position I'd want here. Also, I'd rather look like the dip-shit that can't spell for his life. Looking professional in a non formal online community just seems like a waste of time to me... But do you think I *"suck balls" at English? Doubt it.

    *That seems just so professional ;-)

    Ya, I'm thinking that we have had just about as many (if not more) comments disputing color tags and Malufa's standing than we have had on the actual topic. So, I put out a plea: please stay on topic.

    @Malufa: Haven't heard much of your opinion on the topic. Any input?

    OK, this is enough.

    Malufa definitely acted wrong in this thread. He has already been punished. Please live on.

    The next post HAS to be on-topic

    Well, my view is, there will always be war. You can't possibly have a permanent peace, because there is bound to be something that people disagree over, or someone is going to invade some other country in the quest for more land, resources, power, whatever, and then you will have yet another war on your hands... it's a never-ending cycle.

    Actually this was not my "come-back" thread, Hey guys was and it was far more bomabarded than this. To answer my thoughts it is simple: Leave well enough alone. I have no problems with the people on this site nor do I dislike anyone here no matter how much they seek to provoke or attack me. Stop talking about my colour and move on, that is all I ask of those who seek to say bad things.

    As for my beliefs relavent to this topic you will find my views at the begining. I believe that it is merely another representation of yin and yang, they are inexorably intertwined and must exist together.

    Malufa, your behavior and attitude are the issue, not your color text anymore

    Okay, interesting perspective to think about: In the novel, 1984, by George Orwell, one particular group of characters has the slogan "War is Peace; Freedom is Slavery; Ignorance is Strength." The book talks continually about how the idea of perpetual (ongoing) war brings absolute peace and how the common man's ignorance throughout that situation brings lasting peace.

    Any thoughts on the subject?

    the only way to call peace without war is "nothingness". if we all were to die, nothing surviving, no life anywhere throughout the universe, there would be no war. emotions cause war. if one has emotions, they are bound to conflict with other emotions, creating fights, or in our time, war. say, a bigass nuke is strong enough to blow everything to an oblivion in this huge wtf flash. few seconds after, there would be your peace.

    does no one think that the goodness in people is greater than a strange greed for more and competition? i think peace is possible. think of how many people start wars, not many, but how many are in them!??! the vast majority of fighters dont want to fight, they do because they have to. its the stupid leaders we elect that start the wars, unless its a civil wars which is started by people who dont like the leaders.

    I am an optemist, hoping that peace can occur; however, I am also a realist, so I know it cannot and will not. The only way that absolute peace can come is if everyone has the same aspirations, needs, beliefs, and understandings; and heck, if that's what peace means, I'm happy with a war every now and again.

    Oh, and I was thinking about the Book of Revelations in the Bible; it talks about a peace, at the time of the return of Christ, that will last for 1000 years (if I'm not mistaken). But first will come "wars and rumors of wars" and all sorts of pestilence, etc. So, I'm thinking, if in something like this revelation, involving supposed deity, there is war before peace, what hope do we, mortals have in creating a peaceful situation that is unmarred by war?
