Part of the reason I had not already posted the request publicly is because I was selfishly waiting to see what whb had to say about it. I figured he would find it irresistible to put at least one veiled jab at me in there (which he did), and was just genuinely curious to see how it would be worded. As far as me poisoning the issue by posting... I actually think it works to our benefit diplomatically if we post in support of the reload and a team (RB for example) actually is dumb enough to take the bait and oppose the reload just because of a desire to oppose me personally. It will completely sour their relations with Civfr and instantly endear us to them... Then again maybe we just want a nice quick reload without any Turn 0 meta-game political fights? Thoughts?
