Or, y'know, ask him to stop. :v
To be frank, why my first comment on that one thread was like so was because I wholly know that kind of attitude on commenting and the need to comment. Personal experience. :/

Also I like how my post is wholly ignored despite PW's own post being right after mine. >_>

A few others and myself have tried, but that only seems to add fuel to the fire as it's too important in his eyes to make his point. If no one responds to him, he has nothing to respond to. We've all done similar things in the past, though not all to the same extent.

Because trying to stuff Fate/Whatever's engrish and the title of a 17th century book on statecraft into Pokemon syntax tends to make the content incomprehensible.

Okay then... get some pants on.
I recommend you get your pants and all your other clothes on before purchasing your equipment at the armory, unless of course, you want to put on an article of clothing each real-time day :P
Also, you may want to cross out your first action post.

Added a quotes page to the tropes page. Mostly quotes from Piecewise, but also has Tiriuin's excellent description of the overall starting scernario.

Search the sigtext topic for "piecewise". Many good quotes there.
One of my favourites is this:

@swordsmith: You could try checking with Steve the contents of Order 118 before playing the soundbite to the sods via comms. I suspect those orders are all standardized and therefore Steve knows what it means.

"Hey steve." You speak into the air.
>Yes?
"Could you guys also make a hamburger out of this arm when they cut it off? I wanted to eat it just for the sake of tasting it."
>That is horrible and disgusting. It will no doubt set you apart and create fear in your team mates. So of course.

My guess is that "Order 118" is mostly an authorization measure. Every consecutive order must be assigned a number, following a specific pattern (not necessarily straightforward), otherwise the Sods fall back on any directives they have for the "command center is taken over" situation.

So... does anyone want to take their chances and say say "Order [Random number]" in the hopes that it makes the Sods escort them, assist them or spontaneously break dance?

It'll be like Perplexicon except as a squad command game! :P

Not at all. It might be funny to watch the UWM try to figure that out first hand. The rebellion might succeed much sooner after that.
