Stuff like this is a part of the reason I left the WA (the other part is that I'm half certain that I'm already failing to comply with, like, half the resolutions).
There are really 3 ways to deal with this: Complain to technical (though I'm certain somebody already has), withdraw from WA participation (I did that, though one could argue doing that is giving up and letting a bad system continue), or follow the advice of this dispatch (Yes, I know that the source is one you'd usually do well to take the perspectives of with a grain of salt, but it's still an interesting argument)
These activities appear to be symptoms of ultranationalism and fascism. War chanting in the RMB, open hostility towards regions of different national classification/focus, and unwavering unanimity in their regional ideology. It is notable that Montealba and Driselbia are regions which are directly aligned with KAISERREICH, a region which has been liberated recently for suspected radicalism and fascist sentiments behind closed doors and under the guise of Monarchism/so-called "Anarcho-Monarchism."
Stay vigilant with these, friends.The Wolf Clan invaders have been targeting these regions in the hopes of exposing the ignorant nations within the KAISERREICH of its inherent toxicity and violation of the sanctity of human liberties.

I just got back from Easter Vigil service.
Allelulia! Christ is risen tomorrow morning. Alleluia! We are redeemed! Alleluia! Lent is over!
God bless you all!
Take your advertisements elsewhere. The Realm of Balder is not interested in working with those who do not conduct diplomacy in a reasonable manner. Do not come back.
That's anti-intellectualist dismissal of the hard work of others. If you don't like the facts the statistics represent, say so. If you disagree with the statistics, make your own calculations and disprove the wrong ones. Claiming that statistics are irrelevant when a poster has made a legitimate point is taking the coward's way out.
And worse still, on top of those issues, it misses a much greater problem by focusing on a rather small one. That is, people all too often lie with factually correct stats. Because data analysis and presentation are hugely important for understanding what any statistical data actually means. Don't distrust statistics merely because they're statistics. Distrust them because their presentation can be deeply misleading--even when the people reporting this information are genuinely trying to be honest. Look up Simpson's Paradox (which technically isn't a paradox, just an incongruity, but "paradox" is catchier) for a common example, e.g. where a real university looked like it was horribly male-favoring sexist for graduate-level admissions in the aggregate, but for each and every department individually, it favored women over men by a substantial margin--the real sexism was in what women had been taught (by society) to apply for, more or less, rather than in anything sexist the university itself was doing. But learning this requires extremely careful and self-evaluative analysis of data, which a lot of people don't feel like putting the effort into, or worse, have a genuine incentive not to.
I hope everyone had a happy Easter dinner!
