D4: Two things. Play MP games, you can say what you like in diplomacy. Also, you can change these things...all the diplo-talk is in one or two files...can't remember the names off hand. I once looked into changing some things, and was amazed at just how much variety there already is in the game, so left it alone. Not that I disagree. It'd be nice if all of the faction-speak was made part of a nice faction-editing program published with the game. Nonetheless, it is easy to change.
