I don't get it. ssharma posts hyper-nationalist crap and rants, gets 20
replies. I try and start a debate on freedman colonization, and I get
no attention.

Everything on this page has been ignored in favor of the troll.

I don't know what you mean by "page", but I replied to the all-hail-India
threads _and_ to "No Yugoslavia" and "Hitler dies Feb 1941". As to why I did
not reply to your post about the colonization of Iowa or what was it, the
sad truth is that I'm unable to give a meaningful contribution there. Sorry.

Well, the pages are rather temporary, but even scanning past pages, the
spam style pages get more attention.

It really isn't fair, as some althists got ignored in favor of "All
Hail my Country" and "I hate Islam" threads. Not just my first post,
but others too. there isn't even a way to bump, and bring back a
notable topic.

I didn't really expect much attention for the Colonization thread (in
Oklahoma), but I expected something before it got pushed back to older
topics.

I swear, I was on the verge of posting a "Thanks for posting this, but
I dont' know enough to comment" to your thread, but decided against it
at the last minute. Please don't be discouraged; sometimes good WIs
don't get responded to. Keep it up!

Yeah, I agree with the above posts- it was a really good idea that I
sadly know nothing about.

The answer, my friend, can be found by doing a GoogleGroups on this
newsgroup and the phrase "square law of shw-i".

Well you now have a thoughtful response from David Tenner, and none of
us can ask for more than that.

Much agreed; I wish David Tenner would reply to mine more often
(although he seems to have been paying attention for "Adventures in
Politics" which is cool :D )

Well, sorry for this rant and spam. I guess that a lot of WIs will get
ignored, and at least you guys found it interesting.

Have you ever bothered to look at the email address extensions of many
of the posters?

For example, do you know what the .au extension on *my* email address
means?

Perhaps you shouldn't be so cocksure that the world is the USA and
that everyone knows about the most obscure aspects of *American*
History.

For example, if I posted a what if about Sir Phillip Game dying of
apoplexy the night before meeting Jack Lang would you have a clew?
Short of a quick, and lucky, Google I think not.

Get over it.

Why do you assume I'm white? Racist. Most of my topics have been on
racial issues, and on freedmen in particular. Mayeb I'm black?

I currently play a politsim with an Indian Muslim (Not Indian accoridng
to you) and am friendly with an Indian exchange student (she is in less
normal classes till she gets the hang of English). I wouldn't mind a
GOOD India WI. I do mind WIs that make no sense. I do mind WIs that
have a political purpose. If I posted that the entire world would be
conquered by the True Aryans by 1500 if the Jews were annhilated, I
would be called a nazi. You remove Islam, India overcomes all of its
numerous problems and natural disabilities, and conquers the world.
That makes you an RSS blackshirt.

I am currently playing a politsim with an Indian Muslim (but you don't
count them as people, do you?), and he is the most able player. I am
not a racist. I have no problem with India what ifs, I do have problems
with posts that wipe out a race and makes India great as a result of
it. I do have a problem with a WI that ignores a country's real
situation for an idealised myth. I dislike WIs that have a political
goal. If I started saying that if not for the Jews, Germany would have
conquered the world, I would be called a Nazi. You are an RSS
Blackshirt.
