Ten guys jump one, what a man
You fight each other, the police state wins
Stab your backs when you trash our halls
Trash a bank if you’ve got real balls -Dead Kennedys

“I really don’t understand Null at all because the way I see it, they claim to be growing apart but they still have strong agreements that include respect of each others rights of passage and structures.  No camping jump bridges, stations or just cloaky skulking about.  Isn’t that kinda the definition of Blue and ‘alliance’?”

“Yeah but they aren’t blue, you see?  The Coalitions are allowed to shoot each other, aside from the restrictions you mentioned above.  While TEST and Goons may be blue the rest of their respective coalition members are not held to the same strictures.”

“Except for the part about camping, structures and most especially moons.”

“Well, yeah.  Except for that.”

“And you don’t see that as them still being a larger coalition with just some allowances for ‘good fights’ inside?  Hell, RvB is more acrimonious than that.  TEST has just announced that they are the biggest . . .whatever, in New Eden.  But I am saying that as part of Goons they have been biggest for quite some time.”

“But I keep telling you they are not part of . . . ”

“Then let’s see them act like it.  Hit a moon or three, reset and eject.  Look, with Goons and TEST it is not words it is actions.  What they say means nothing as they have a long loooong history of trolling and lying or propaganda.  You watch what they do, and don’t do.  Want to impress me you don’t stand next to Daddy yelping that you are a ‘big boy’ now.  Kick dad in the trust fund and move out.”

“You really don’t understand Null at all, do you?”

“I SAID that!”

Diplomacy is the art of saying ‘Nice doggie’ until you can find a rock. – Will Rogers

Which means I am ignoring most of what is said and just watching the actions, from that point of view the Dotlan map is even more monochromatic.  Are they pretending to split to seem less threatening to remaining alliances of null?  Or maybe trying to extend the umbrella with the old ‘you won’t be with goons, you’ll be with us!’

Who would fall for that?

Fly it like you won it, this is also a post in the Keres draw

    Until the funding of large alliances is seperated from passive sources and perhaps some things are done to reduce the ability of large alliances from bloobing the living crap out of anything that moves anywhere in seconds, Null Sec is just nullbear land for the most part. If you live there, you are blue to most everyone if you don’t, a lot of space is pretty vacant. As someone once said and you reitterated, it’s not what you say, it’s what you do that reveals you to the world.
