Now go away or I shall taunt you a second time.
May someone give me a quick summary of what the WA is voting on? I just got back from work and can't be bothered to read all that jargon.
If not, whatever, I'll just abstain.
Um, basically a yes vote means you believe "if you're in the WA, you HAVE to let lawyers from other nations into your nation if someone gets sued or charged with a crime, so they can give notice and demand court appearance in that other nation of people in yours, or else have your own state attorneys do it for them."
I voted no because (a) that's a massive breach of sovereignty and (b) it basically means every WA nation has to abide by the strictest criminal and civil law rules of ANY member nation, because international aggrieved parties could always sue in whatever nation is most favorable. The US already has serious problems with inter-state civil and criminal law producing perverse incentives for both prosecution(/plaintiff) and defense(/defendant). This is MUCH worse.
I voted no, what about you guys?
Alright. Thanks for the summary, friend. I'll probably vote no as well.
How can you analyze the current WA proposals in such an easy and accurate manner? I think others having a hard time to comprehend such proposals.
I also voted no, but my WA nation isn't actually in this region, as I'm a member of Balder's military so I have to use it on operations elsewhere. :P
Condensing info into meaningful chunks is basically my job and my goal career. I'm a tutor (previously for college students, now for elementary/middle school kids), and I want to do physics research and teaching at the college level. Believe me, I wasn't always good at it.
My Fellow Members of Balder. I have a humble request. If you should be so kind as to extend to me an endorsement I shall return the favor in kind.
Here I sit, reviving a nation on an IPad 1 (That's iOS 5.1.1!) because of a broken computer.
(And also because I hate myself with the burning rage of ten million suns. That too.)
