palooka, sir, sionnach is not a marsupial. I do not do recon on umbillically-fixated, coop-crawling, toilet-brush-tailed canid miscreants. That would be beyond me. Marsupial Recon is not a Haz-Mat equipped unit, sir.
Hmmm, I went through my intelligence files bilby & this billb person seems to be ok. It's just coincidental his name is similar to yours.
I'm starting to wonder about "sionnach" though. He isn't showing a lot of respect for our Wordie First Expeditionary Battalion ("First in Words, First in Word Battles") members. What does Marsupial Recon have on sionnach?
Hmmm. That umbilical envy must be really gnawing, to make someone go to the lengths of creating a fake faux-wordie identity, just for the purpose of "exposing" it. Why not just call him Ern Malley and have him submit "faux-poetry"? It would be the continuation of a glorious tradition.

bilby of Marsupial Recon reporting, sir. I have detected an attempt to infiltrate the ranks with a trojan bilby! An obvious impostor! clam , of all things to say in your only comment on Wordie. A real bilby would never say clam ... life in the desert is eternally clamless, sir. The marsupial mountebank! I therefore deduce he is carrying WMD, an operative of Al-Flickr and a threat to the stability and good order of the Wordieverse as we know it.
Chained_Bear's right about the over-running of Alincarman. I wasn't issuing commands or directing the tactical operations, so it was more of a unplanned guerilla operation than an organized military seige. In fact I received no commendations or ribbons for Alincarman.
But contrary to sionnach's assertions, it was a fine show of Wordie firepower.
Despite the popular nomenclature, there is a set of classifications for armed word wars. While the action at Alincarman was not a pitched battle with clearly defined military forces in opposition, it was definitely a riot.
You can hardly consider the Alincar Initiative your finest hour, folks. I just took a look over there, and it reminds me of nothing so much as the aftermath of the lexical equivalent of a poorly supervised LSD ingestion experiment.
The Battle of Alincarman was fought at Any words List Its open!! by a platoon of 10 Wordies. I'm not sure what ordinal number this Word War this was; Word War historians will be debating this for years.
