Yeah, definition is important. I just don't think that anyone who feels the need to boast about using a whole alliance to take out one player has much claim to being any sort of "real deal" regardless of how good their alliance might be - unless it's "real deal childish buffoon".
The phrase 'real deal' is Djdom's.
The original thread is Djdom's.
He opened his mouth too wide and he was silenced. Op-ing one or two major players in an enemy alliance, repeatedly if needs be, is a legitimate and effective tactic.
Trust me, nobody is boasting that Djdom is no more. Personally I will miss the BP from his interminable and unsuccessful attacks on Mauro.
