The Boo or its protectorates will soon be warping into the following systems:

 

Pandonia

Beor

Darwin

Agneti

Clergea

Schleipner

Ave

Anfous

 

Any objections should now be made with accompanying proof of claims, any of which should be sent to the Boo Consulate at merovais@yahoo.com .

 

In Peace

While we welcome this opportunity for diplomatic discourse we doubt seriously that all, if any, of these systems are yours since we have not detected your presence. If you can present sufficient evidence to establish colorable claims we would be more than happy to entertain negotions regarding passage and borders.

"Colorable claims" eh? I guess now it's Mr. Boo, Esq. to all of us. :blink:

Yes but the Boo use napoleonic code as their basis and a majority of the players use common law (UK and US). Thus, any claim the Boo make can be argued as non valid because their premise for actual land claims is radically different from ours.

Who knows, maybe he'll agree to give up 1/3 of his known territory for about 25 Iron...

The Boo Civil Code is very much an indigenous one:)

 

The Republic of France never actually replaced Spanish private law (Which was an Hispanicised version of Roman law), so the laws in force in Louisiana at the time it became American were Spanish as exemplified by the Sietes des Partidas which governed most of the private matters in the Spanish portions of the New World. After statehood Louisiana commissioned a full blown Civil Code in 1828--The same Code we have now, with some revision, except that the French text has been droped (although it controls where the articles haven't been changed) and chattle slavery has been eleminiated. Our law is thus Spanish, it was just writen in French because that is what the majority of the people could read. Before that the Territory of Olreans' governing Assembly commissioned the Digest of 1808 which was a restatement of the laws in force in the Louisina Territories. It was basically copied verbatum into the Code of 1828. Napoleon's admittedly wonderful Civil Code was not written until 1811, I think. Both Louisiana and France utilized the same French sources of legal scholarship in drafting their respective codes, but they are not the same. There are similarities in all roman legal systems, but there are also differences.

 

We should note that a great portion of the private law in the Western States derive from Spanish Law. That is where community property and other such institutions originate. When the Western territories were organized into states after the Mexican War they had to receive and adopt, statutorily, the Common Law as it then existed. They also adopted the Spanish Laws by statute. Thus the law of Colorado is also Spanish in origin and hense it is the Boo who conform, since, presumably, Colorado's law governs our cyber galaxy :-) :blink:

Our position is that your government has made the claim. We regard these systems as open to free access unless you can somehow demonstrate why they shouldn't be. Indeed, most of these systems are sovereign territories that belong to the Boo or our Protectorates. This means that if you have a claim it better be a very compelling one.

 

How you prove up your adverse claim is up to you. Without evidence, however, we must presume your claims to be a hoax. Nevertheless, this diplomatic discourse has been a pleasure. Do post again.

Well well, I need strong evidence, to claim a world, as you say.

 

Exactly what evidence are you presenting?

First thing we do, is kill all the lawyers.

 

Just fyi, this statement in the play by Ole' Billy (if that is his real name) was made by a character advocating utter anarchy. Because the lawyers supported justice, freedom and upheld the law, the character(s) believed that by killing all the lawyers they could create anarchy and thus gain by the lack of a civilized government. Therefore, those advocating killing all the lawyers (despite the inherent evil in murder) are not those who advocate justice and fairness in dealing with others.

 

Cheers :robot:
