    I dont think bribery can go unchallenged, something must be done. Someone cannot win an election after having bribed with rep, doesnt work that way. Lets keep corruption out of the MUN.
    tough crap, no rules against it so stop whinging.

    right, cos my maturity is determined by my actions on an internet forum:rolleyes:

    there is a life beyond TSR, as hard as that may be for you to accept, just get over it.

    its not regarding the internet, its regarding a single forum, which whilst it may play a huge role in your life is simply a pastime for me, where there is no need for me to be mature or sensible as long as i keep within the rules of the forum.

    Although it may be a pasttime for you, we don't want cheating to ruin our time in the MUN. We may enjoy this or think a lot more of it than you do, and don't want our posting and activities here ruined by your selfish and cheating behaviour.

    cant see how my behaviour has in any way ruined the "MUN experience" for anyone. if however, you want a dig because you felt insulted regarding comments i made elsewhere regarding you, comments for which you had no response, then fine carry on, but do not expect me to change my outlook because it fails to fit into your perfect world.

    If you were elected under false pretences by bribing someone, we would have lost a perfectly good French rep candidate, who probably could have done the job much better than someone who had to give rep to get elected. You'll be elected cos you can rep, not cos you are right. That is ruining the experience.

    and yet being a member of a clique allowing you to form a monopoly on the MUN and gain votes for whatever you want is fine?:rolleyes:

    hardly anything here is judged on ability but more on friendships, wake up and smell the coffee.

    im not talking about you personally. my point is that MOST people here get things done by forming friendships not by their ability. if you were very skilled at screwing your debaters into the ground you would end up with a bank of enemies with a grudge against you. however you would get far by attempting to be friends with everyone and so maintaining a very neutral and amicable style of debating, so my point is that nobody wins an election here because of their ability but more becuase of their frienships and because of other methods. feel free to look down on me for attempting to bribe voters but nearly all of you have in one way or another not played a fair game, the truth hurts.

    Not really. I hardly know the person I voted for in the French Rep election. I observed his/her style and skill at debating and voted for her/him. He/She is a mere aquaintance, not a friend.
