    Which clan issues the most fair challenges? Surely it will be the clan who has drawn the most challenges sharing the points with its opponents? Who are these fair clans? All one needs to do is make a search for the clans with the most drawn games, when we do this we see that chess troopers are the fairest clan, the second fairest clan is you guessed it, the Easy Riders.

    the third fairest clan is illuck and the next is the Wycombe symposium clan and fifth is the drunken pawns. These are the top five fairest clans in the land.

    More of your egalitarian nonsense !!
    I suppose that the next Scottish Premier League trophy should be presented
    to the team with the most draws ??
    Because the best team is not the best team !!

    Your personal ideology flows over into your ideas about competition in this site.
    The clan that wins must be cheating. So you have to cheat to defeat that clan.

    It all comes together for you, doesn't it ?

    I am not entirely convinced you understand the meaning of egalitarian, never the less, my premise stands, the teams with the most draws must surely be the fairest clan, having issued challenges which result in a balanced outcome. Its no coincidence of course that your clan does not feature in the top five of the lands fairest.

    Our clan does not aims for draws in clan challenges.
    So your assessment is correct.

    I know what egalitarian means.
    You and those of similar ideological leanings seem to think
    that people should be equal... but then stay equal.

    Setting fair challenges does not equate with equality, its a non sequitur because the conclusion does not logically follow from the premise.

    Your clan does not set fair challenges?

    Clans set challenges. Opposing clan leaders evaluate them and decide
    to accept or return to sender.

    Collusion is when 2 or more clan leaders arrange in advance to manufacture a
    bunch of challenges amongst themselves.
    This to generate a bunch of points for one of the clans in order
    to settle a perceived grievance that all clans involved have with
    another clan or individual.

    Need I say more ??

    and what would be your logic for Anti Metallica and Breaking Bad being at the top for losses, that they don't know their arse from their elbow?

    Yes ..... because the opposing clan leader has accepted them.
    And therefore thinks they are fair.
    You see ... that's where you miss the point !!
    The clan leader receiving the challenges makes that determination.

    That being said .... don't even try to apply that logic to your challenges with Anti-Metallica and Breaking Bad clans.
    Those are arranged challenges as part of your collusion with those clans.

    You now have your answer !! Happy ??

    So if antimetallica and breaking bad think that the challenges that they give and receive are fair, then they must be fair, according to your logic. thankyou so much.

    I've been away from the clan forums as you know for sometime.

    Who is Shirty?....Looks like you might be talking about a Clan leader because they are the only ones who can kick people from the clan.
    I think I get it now, but a very rude way to refer to a person. Do you recall what Russ said about being civil?
