...And I'm still not going to tell you, Jacob.

There's no need to spell out all the evidence. First Shawn showed up shortly after Jacob got banned, and claimed to be "at Jacob's house", then Creeper used the same excuse. And then when we ban "you", someone else will show up claiming to be his acolyte or ally.

And I still use "plan" very loosely when it comes to the scheme to put a new monarch in charge of England. Why don't you go to England and try discussing this sort of thing with locals?

Jacob plans to do something like that by revealing information about English history to them. He studied English history and knows that Richard III seized the throne from his nephew Edward V because evidence was found that Edward IV had a previous marriage before marrying Elizabeth Woodville while his first wife was still alive  which made his marriage with her invalid and all his children were illegitimate. That was documented in the document known as the Titulus Regius. He therefore believes that Richard III was England’s last true King.

Then Richard III was defeated in the Battle of Bosworth Field and the usurper Henry VII secured his claim to the throne by marrying Elizabeth of York, a daughter of Edward IV and Elizabeth Woodville to merge the Houses of Lancaster and York. He ordered the Titulus Regius destroyed to cover up the fact that the woman he married was illegitimate. Only 1 copy survived. The true heirs are therefore the descendants of Richards eldest sister Anne of York.

He will join an existing society called the Richard III Society and eventually help them investigate and find smoking gun proof of Edward IV’s previous marriage. That will prove that the current royal family is descended from an illegitimate line whic will cause public outrage since the English have been paying taxes to support a family that has no right to be on the throne.

Many more people will join the Richard III Society and the Society will want to restore the true heir to avenge Richard III. It will become a political movement that will infiltrate parliament and change the monarchy.

I am starting to get annoyed by this "But his replacement could be equally bad or worse!" meme.

If you find out that someone is unfit for a job or elected position, it should be the duty of the organization or nation to have them replaced. Doesn't matter who the hypothetical replacement is, if they are also unfit they will be replaced then

EDIT: Oops, wrong thread.

Anyway, there is a comment that I've seen a few times and I can't remember it correctly so my less eloquent version would be "some men are afraid that they might be treated the way they are treating women."

Actually, similar comment has been made about minorities. White supremacists have an irrational fear of becoming a minority in their own country only because they think that they would get the same treatment that they want to give to minorities.

Not to mention, that particular market is largely what's keeping the Yakuza rolling in yen.

The poor bastards need something to keep them from killing themselves under the insane weight of Japanese working culture... well, any more often than they already do, at any rate.
