As some of you may remember, some time ago, the Galactic Confederacy of Civilisations called a referendum on whether to welcome you to our family of planets, or erase you from existence. /1
The campaign to embrace you called itself Befriend; the campaign to destroy you (of which I am co-director), Obliterate.
It looked a close-run thing for a while. /2
But with 99.9% of votes in, finally (drum roll) … it looks like an overwhelming win for Obliterate, with 51.8%! (I know. Uncanny, isn’t it?) /3
