Re: Conference of the Monarch (Thoughts)

As for this being a pretend environment with pretend monarchs, yes - you're right. However, within the confines of the game, the players have given the captains, royalty, and monarchs implied authority to speak on their behalf in any number of game situations. Even if you did not "elect" your in-game leadership, by your continued membership in the crew/flag, you accept the "play time" authority that the in-game position represents. Disagree? Start your own flag.

Thank you for making the point for me. As I said - it's represents a confusion between the imaginary and reality. Between "play time" and real life. You're absolutely right about players accepting the "play time" authority of their in-game monarchs by virtue of their being members in the first place. However, representing our interests as consumers to a company with whom we do business is not "play time." That's real life, where pretend monarchs have absolutely no authority or standing whatsoever.
