As you should? Seriously? There is no choice about DOWing where you have a DP. Regardless of the existence of a DoF. And no warning that I could see that entering into a DP could lead to a diplo hit. At least give a guy a head's up. And a DP only kicks in if a third party is the aggressor. Yet I'M the one taking the dip hit? A DP should trump a DoF in terms of global politics. Or the game should offer the option for you to remain neutral. Or at least warn you about the diplo hit. Since the game doesn't have that option, and doesn't warn you, there should NOT be a diplo hit. And as for the other diplo hit, if it didn't happen, how am I suffering a diplo hit when I never promised France to move from their borders, but never invaded Rome, while Rome was the nation I assured I wouldn't DoW? Personally, I think V has all kinds of diplo bugs and mistakes. I can't tell you how many times I've told a Civ to piss off, only to later be told I broke my promise not to expand towards them.
