"Refight the first insterstellar war of Freespace"

<< < (3/7) > >>

The US Civil War is commonly referred to as the first "modern" war.

The "modern era" started after the end of the middle ages (Renaissance was "early modern").

Therefore the US Civil War could not be the first modern war because there were plenty of wars in the modern period before it.

You see how ridiculous semantics can become?

I have changed the forum description anyway.

(And I seem to remember someone getting all mad at the new description and posting about it in Hosted Support, but I can't find any such post.  Maybe I imagined it... :nervous:)

Androgeos Exeunt:
Cue to facepalm?

The new forum description is . . . stylish. Extremely . . . unique.  ;)

What is it now?
