 [[noob movement|N00b rights]] – rather, the curtailing of n00b rights – was a major issue approached by the [[2007 Parliament]] on several occasions throughout its session. ​ After the movement'​s prominent leader [[Demosthenes]] agreed to dissolve both the Noob Party and Shadow Parliament before joining the [[Evil Party]], n00b rights fell off the agenda for several months. ​ The issue was brought up again in May 2008, though, when [[the_lyniezian]] declared His Administratorness'​ Government to be irrelevant and announced the establishment of a second, allegedly n00b-dominated opposition government, the Anti-Parliament. ​ The Anti-Parliament came under intense criticism from His Administratorness'​ Government, especially from recently returned [[ahcom president|President]] [[Midgard]],​ which considered the Anti-Parliament an illegal subversion of the duly elected government'​s authority. [[noob movement|N00b rights]] – rather, the curtailing of n00b rights – was a major issue approached by the [[2007 Parliament]] on several occasions throughout its session. ​ After the movement'​s prominent leader [[Demosthenes]] agreed to dissolve both the Noob Party and Shadow Parliament before joining the [[Evil Party]], n00b rights fell off the agenda for several months. ​ The issue was brought up again in May 2008, though, when [[the_lyniezian]] declared His Administratorness'​ Government to be irrelevant and announced the establishment of a second, allegedly n00b-dominated opposition government, the Anti-Parliament. ​ The Anti-Parliament came under intense criticism from His Administratorness'​ Government, especially from recently returned [[ahcom president|President]] [[Midgard]],​ which considered the Anti-Parliament an illegal subversion of the duly elected government'​s authority.
