Is this your opinion as you have a two man so called clan?
Or do you condone the cheating going on by a certain Clan?
Very well, Mister Rusty. I'd be happy to respond, but I wish your referents were more specific. The penultimate post on page 3, written by me, contains some statements of fact, some hearsay, and a supposition that includes a nice metaphor.
I don't think any of those could be called an opinion per se
As for your second question, has it been objectively determined that a strategy used by a certain Clan is cheating? If that were the case (and I don't believe it is), then of course I would not condone that behavior.
But if it is only unwritten rules that are being broken, then the logical fallacy of appealing to authority is further compounded by an appeal to unwritten authority. So, what would be a fair way to adjudicate this matter?
Sorry to respond with additional questions, in the manner of certain forum piqueurs. You may consider my questions to be rhetorical if you like.
As for condoning that strategy in the latter case, where there might be a breach of social mores albeit unwritten, I will say this:
Despite my previous withdrawal of support in response to the surprising manners of certain parties and paranoiacs, and despite the obviously self-serving nature of a certain clan bringing these objections to the fore, I would agree that anyone resigning any game early for any reason other than a clearly lost position or a real-life emergency (storm, severe medical issue, death in the family, etc.) is not being fair to the player on the other side of the board who has begun the game in good faith that it would be played to completion.
