And yeah, can I get more tinfoil over here please? XD


Or in other words, you insult what you're incapable of understanding.

I only asked if you had another theory. To the best of my estimations you were either unwilling or unprepared to offer one. I meant no insult.

Since old-Ansom would have considered new-Ansom an abomination, I wonder if Charlie assumed that Jillian would dust new-Ansom out of loyalty to the values of old-Ansom. Charlie hasn't had the same face-to-face contact with decrypted units that the units on the scene have had, so he may not realize how vividly alive they are.

It's not clear that Jillian would go back and deal with Wanda even if Ansom were dead... although it does seem marginally more likely that she would go back for better or ill. He may be thinking that Jillian could be bribed to head back into the fray if Ansom were removed from the picture... or would do it for Jetstone's sake.


Maybe he thought that Sammy would appear to be croaking rather than capturing Ansom on his own initiative, and that Jillian would be more favorably inclined toward Jetstone if Haggar were the ones who croaked Ansom.

As good of an explanation as any I had!

You'll recall that Charlie views all of the decrypted as "things", "puppets", whatever. He likely took an identical view of Ansom at the time, and assumed that Jillian did as well.

However he views them (which I don't think we can divine at this time due to Charlie's penchant for double-talk), it is fair to say that he wants at least one archon back alive more than he wants it dead. His words backed up with his money.

So that's not intended as an insult?

Then, please, expound on the meaning of "tinfoil" in this sentence and how it is not a suggestion your opponent is paranoid and delusional.

That part, as used and explained earlier on this page, was addressed to Rob Balder. It is asking for a new update, which we have since received.
