    Congratulations on your awesome win and displacing an Inca win from the "Hall of Shame" "Hall of Inca Wins" and helping to transform it back to the Hall of Fame, game by game.

    The term "Hall of Shame" "Hall of Inca Wins" is simply a way of expressing my disdain for #1 Inca games in the Hall of Fame.

    Yes, we all get it. Please try to stop working this off-topic comment into every thread you visit.

    (btw, I'm glad you're back to commenting on the HoF updates. Cheers)

    Huge gratz on Cseanny for his killer U.N. 1070 AD.
    Will come on that one with my full-blown HoF over 9000 cheating abilities at that potential time.

    I simply commented on how a #1 Inca game got beat this update. Please explain how that's off-topic for this thread.

    Please reread your own comments regarding Inca in the Challenge IX-10 thread (where Tachywaxon gained the above mentioned new #1 game):

    http://forums.civfanatics.com/showpost.php?p=12144499&postcount=34

    I refrained from responding to it in that thread, but will refer to it now as an example of "off-topic" comments to promote Inca in a competition that bans it.

    I was simply trying to fire up the players for that challenge and was joking. Friendly trash-talk. I have no intention of submitting a competing Inca game. As the current holder of that slot, it was a completely "on-topic" comment.

    RE: your post, I did not criticize the entire thing. You start out on-topic and work in your worn-out, negative comments.

    You are spreading your hatred around the boards. I had to bite my tongue and try to not respond when you once again worked the Inca filter and more HoF disrespect into an unrelated thread here:

    I see nothing wrong with my post you linked to and my coining of the term Hall of Shame. I truly believe it is a "shame" that so many #1 games in the HoF are Inca for reasons I won't repeat here. I have respect for and like the staff and all players. I like you and respect you as a player.

    Perhaps, "Hall of Shame" is too derogatory a term after all. I shall amend that to "Hall of Inca Wins" which seems neutral to me.

    EDIT: Well after further consideration, I regret using the term "Hall of Shame". I further acknowledge that it is clearly derogatory. I didn't consider how others would respond to it. I apologize for my slip in ettiquette. As I mentioned before, I shall use the coined term "Hall of Inca Wins" instead which has no intristic derogatory meaning (it is more a statement of fact or future prediction).

    This thread had gotten seriously off topic, please keep it to discussion of the update please.

    I moved all the other posts to their own thread over here.
