So it's the first vote of the new world congress. I submitted a proposal for arts funding. Boudicca submits one for banning marble. I just mined my first marble, and she has nothing against me yet, is not at war or even feeling badly towards anyone who has marble, so who knows why. I think AI's just suggest stupid bans out of thin air, most of the time. Random stupidity just for the sake of a dumb proposal. :shrug: So the vote rolls around, and there's no way I'm going to let her ban one of my luxes, so I cast my two votes (leader) as nay against it. When the results are in, she didn't even cast a single vote for her 'ban marble' proposal, and it loses by like 8 votes due to most of the rest of the world thinking she's as dumb as I do. Instead, she casts her 3 votes (built the Forbidden Palace) for MY suggestion, which she could have ignored, since it passed easily with no nays from anyone. So ok, she's as completely and undeniably dumb as a box of rocks, for proposing it for no good reason in the first place, and then for not even voting for her own proposal. Sure enough, the next turn, I get a glare from her and the diplo hit for 'voting down her proposal'. :le sigh: There should be a rule that if you don't even cast one vote for your own proposal, you should not be allowed to look down your nose at other civs for voting against it- put up or shut up, twit. End of tale.
