I'll be perfectly honest. Two thirds of the way through that, I stopped reading. Why? You've done it AGAIN. You go off on tangents, you bring up OLD tangents and want to continue to complain about them, and you just post wall after wall of arguments and paragraphs that have nothing to do with what we were talking about to begin with. Hell, I made a post depicting, fictitiously, how you cause arguments to go off on tangents. And what do you do? You cut up part of it and make it seem like I'M going off on a tangent. I was depicting how YOU do it, and you know it!
So you know what? Enough of this. I will respond to one point, and one point alone, of yours. Do not drag Pol Pot into this, do not drag morality into this, do not write more than two paragraphs about it, do not claim "well the government of Guam did this in 1997 and Demacia is similar so therefore THEY WOULD DO THE EXACT SAME THING, no exceptions, history repeats itself to the letter every single time ever". There will be no more text walls, no more dragging this out for ten pages in hopes that you make me contradict myself in two random sentences, because you seem to have enough time on your hands to do so. This is the point I will respond to, and if you have a problem with this bare bones, only League of Legends style of discussion, do a 180 right now.
You mentioned a reporter claiming Sivir got preferential treatment. Since this whole discussion is SUPPOSED TO BE about whether we'd choose to live in Demacia or Noxus, I'm assuming that you are using that reporter's claim to justify living in Noxus. After all, the punishment for a normal person convicted of that same crime would be, if you asked Demacia's critics, astronomical. So I ask you one question, just one, and I expect no Pol Pot in your answer, no world war two, no Cold War, no telling me that you have no problem killing civilians for the safety of your own troops, none of that irrelevant sidetracking:
Do you have any, ANY evidence of a person convicted of a crime as 'minor' as destruction of public property in Demacia, and the resulting sentence was some mind-blowingly draconic punishment that was one rung above public execution? You may use any such crime on that level or lower. I don't want to hear any response of "well there was this rape conviction and the guy was executed for it and that wouldn't happen in Canada"; that's not what people think of when they think of a truly corrupt, barbaric legal system where "there are no misdemeanors." Though honestly, even a case like that would be worth looking at, for I'm not aware of any specific examples. That's the question. Answer it if you're comfortable entering into a discussion solely regarding League of Legends. Not "the Allied forces did this in Normandy so Demacia would do the exact same thing, no exceptions, they're literally the same people." League of Legends.
A) No, you weren't "depicting how I did it" - otherwise you would've just linked to a quote and source thread and been done with it.
B) If you're not going to read what I said, I don't have much motivation to read and reply to yours - especially since you've previously asked me not to skim over your posts as you "don't skip".
because you seem to have enough time on your hands to do so. <-- Interesting.
This is the point I will respond to, and if you have a problem with this bare bones, only League of Legends style of discussion, do a 180 right now. <-- Then do a 180, because you deviate from it. You put little insults and assertions that my arguments are worthless, off topic, irrelivant, worth "magic beans", but you don't want me to explain why they're not, or how they're related, because doing so is also, conveniently, off topic. You want special rights to make those assertions, but don't want them responded to?
As for your question, your assumption was wrong. I wasn't using the claim to justify living in Noxus. I already stated, previously, before you posted that, that I preferred Noxus for my own reasons. I've also stated in previous threads that if people prefer Demacia for different reasons, they can do so.
If it's "supposed to be" about whether we'd chose to live in Demacia or Noxus, then why is how they penalize people not related?
The way I understood your point, was that you used Sivir's light sentence as evidence of non-draconian. I gave a response suggesting that such a circumstance could exist in draconian law. That is directly related, and that was the end of the point. I replied to something you said. If it was off topic, so was your comment. Or you misinterprited the point I was making, or I misinterprited yours. No big deal either way.
