Offlimiters (Delimiters)
Hyperturing and higher ai political orientation, refers to those ai that ignore lower toposophics as long as they stay out of the ai's way.

Offlimiters (or Delimiters) will generally set aside a part of a solar system, or even a number of nearby stars, and will respond aggressively to any intrusion into their territory, sometimes pursuing the intruders back to their home polity and exterminating them, at other times ignoring them once they leave the off-limits area. A lot depends on the personality, orientation, and metaempire of the ai in question. Offlimiters/Delimiters are found in all ai metaempires, but are most common in the Diamond Network.
