I am currently occupying this chair and this computer I am typing from so everyone is Occupying something. Might occupy ESD for a couple of minutes later today. So I am not really seeing how this is going to accomplish anything in real life or STO.

As a rule of thumb, real world politics and gaming don't mix, unless of course the game is about real world politics.

Ideally you could get people to talk about those things sensibly and maturely. The problem being that it rarely works out like that, and instead devolves into a flame war.

Here in Canada anyway the media only reports on it when a protestor strokes out on heroin, or says something low-brow. Proof of the mainstream media's agenda. Anyone who belives the NWO is only a conspiricy "theory' is blind to the fact that they are living on the eve of it if not the in the dawn.

a similar thread got closed because of the connection to real world events. technically anything not sto or star trek related should not be posted but they let a lot of things slide, but not politics.

i expect this thread will get closed down as well most likely.
