End game diplomacy

Hi all,

Just been thinking about things in BotF after smashing a couple of games out this week.

When I'm winning I like to basically decimate an enemy empire down to one low population system with no dilithium, essentially making them a weak minor race. After this the AI is set to 2 bars of reputation and "enraged" and no matter how much cash I throw at them they don't get any happier (not that I really blame them). Is this intentional or a bug? This often happens in any game I'm doing really well in even before I've "neutered" the enemy.

I've found that unlike minors, throwing money at majors doesn't seem to have the same effect that it does on minors. Sometimes it just seems to be a wasted effort, other times it will flip them from icy or even despised to cordial in a few turns and to enthusiastic in another.
I haven't figured out why, just that it isn't directly proportional to the amount of cash you throw at them like it is with minors.
