Answering Ender, Per CmndrWilkens Request

A failed experiment whereby board users were invited to advise the Senate, and instead attempted to replace the Senate.

Also, to whoever called Havok "mild mannered": :lol:
It's all relative, as they say in Kentucky.

Leave the names of the posters out of it. Go back and re-type Havok's first post on the subject or put your thumb over his name on your monitor if you have to. Now read what he wrote. Be honest -who in his or her right mind could read that and come to the conclusion that Havok supports the use of child soldiers in real life? It's not just dishonest, it's deranged.
As I said, it can be interpreted as support. But only if you take a very narrow focus and ignore the other context. Perhaps I didn't make that clear enough. I do not think he did, as I tend to look at the whole picture, not just parts of it.

We are supposed to review the posting history of the person in question. How is bringing up past examples of their behavior, which is what we are directly required to do, a vendetta?
If you have a problem with the nomination you vote "no" in the senate thread and say why. You don't fucking derail the nomination thread with links to threads where you 2 had a hissy fit because you personally dislike the member being nominated.
Are you fucking kidding me? The thread is about reviewing someones history. Of course you post relevant information.

Flagg already conceded on that point.

Sorry, I was just dumbfounded when I read that and posted without reading further.
