Re: Regarding sinking blockades
 
 
There was also once was a time when flag A didn't like flag B, and wanted to deplete flag B's resources - a sinking blockade is a good start at doing that. You don't see that kind of grudge blockade as often these days, but every now and then it pops up.

Of course. That is just another form of material attrition. The main difference is that it can easily be done to flags which play fair, whereas material attrition with jobber pay can only be done to paywarring flags, who enjoy winning by outjobbing. Nonetheless, the later form of attrition is often condemned as immoral by the same people who praise sinking blockades. To me, that logic is flawed.


Sinking is an even field, you sink I sink we all sink.

Outjobbing by paywar is pretty obviously one sided. AND is easily and often done to fair-play flags by not so fair-play flags.
