Sounds like a small bit of sabre rattling. I expect both sides will calm down after a bit.

Huh?
What do you mean posting some current news usually ends with the poster being banned or butthurt?
Maybe I'm just dense but when has that ever happened?

If posters don't act like dicks, they won't be temp banned. It really is that simple. The forum rules are quite straightforward, and they don't preclude posts about current events with the potential for T2K/military/post apoc crossover.

I completely agree - just don't get political and keep it polite

Personally, I would argue that the fact that we have forgotten about it is a damned good thing.
It means that people did not keep focused on the unimportant parts, it means people moved on and let the negative parts be forgotten, it means people didn't continue to fight over points that were not relevant to the original post.

RCAF, you seem very concerned about how the forum should be run and what is acceptable content for posting. Have you considered applying for a mod position?

Dude, don't get all philosophical over what is essentially a non-issue.
This is a forum supporting a hobby, it's not a real world conclave making decisions about the fate of nations.

I love how you successfully threadjacked and then turned around to complain the thread is off-topic. That's some master-level trollish kung fu.

The T2k connection here is actually pretty easy... France is positioning itself as the Mediterranean's peacekeeper and potentially siding against a fellow NATO member.

I'm sorry. I'm having trouble understanding the point you're trying to make. How is it off-topic to draw a connection between France's real-world behavior in 2020 and France's game-world behavior in 1996-1998? Or are you now seizing double-unofficial mod control of the forum and declaring that any real-world events after 1991 are off-topic?

Gentlemen, please keep it civil, and keep it on topic. If you're not sure what that means, please see the Forum Guidelines sticky.

The OP was/is of interest to this community. The discussion has not veered into politics. A mod warning has already been posted (msg #5). I'm not going to lock a thread because a single member is continuing to intentionally troll and/or thread-crap in it. Instead, if said member refuses to cease and desist, administrative action will be taken.
