Ok I tink we can play this to our advantage... Quote the part of whomp where he says they are not trading with them and then show them that part that kuningas posted. Now ask Mr Whomp what exactly is going on. "we may be able to get passed this oversight and work with you guys if you gift us a tech." OR My favorite...play completely stupid and then walk over there and take their cities while we "were going to hit Epsilon". Seriously....NO more trades with piffle unless they are very favorable to us.
