Okay, with the presumption that our opponents we are dealing with are at least as smart as us, I will go on and play the conversation as if I am the one receiving this message. "So, CFC needs Stone for something and they need it very soon? What are they up to? Pyramids? Or maybe HG? 10 more citizens would be cool for them, and they are gonna need Aquedut in their capitol too anyway with all those flood plains worked, so here you go! Or they want to build The Great Wall and have a chance for Great Spy? The dreaded espionage thing we were fighting them outside the game for so long and so heated? To give them chance to get a GSpy and steal our precious shiny hard-worked-for technologies which we have monopoly at while we have long NAP? No way! Or they want to build Moai on the other side of the lake and steal our Clams? Or they want to build Chichen Itza in their Isthmus city to push our culture and steal tiles from us and make it virtually unassailable until gunpowder? What are they up to? Hell, we wont give them OUR stone to use it to THEIR advantage. No matter what they have in mind, we better mess up their plans. Also, they say they are closing their happy cap? Well, build more units, you are in HR for God's sake! We wont just give them happy res now to let them use their hammers on libraries instead on axes to keep their cities in order!" I wont use my power to veto sending such message to RB. Until now we failed on the negotiations front to secure good deals with RB regarding land and resources. I want to see how it works this time.
