If you simply keep prisoners, without putting them in labour camps /
mines or selling them to Lizards, do they affect the victim race's
happiness?

In other words, can you keep prisoners as hostages? Or does it make
little difference whether they are in camps etc?

Are you sure this happiness effect is true if the one keeping the
prisoners does not have labour camps or mines (or is not Lizard)??

At least the people not used in labour buildings don't send the POW
messages or do they??

Not much experience in this one because I have been normally the one
taking the prisoners ;)

Messages are sent and Happiness is affected even if they are not in
labor camps/mines

It is especially crippling if you spread these prisoners around...
IIRC, each base of prisoners affects enemy happiness.

IIRC, there is a min # to cause serious unhappiness, though I cannot
recall this #.

It seemed to me that my lower ID number bases got hit the most by
happiness loss.

Yes, I've noticed the same thing now that you mention it. Of course my
highest pop planets tend to be those with lower IDs. In my case it actually
cuts off completely. The first four bases are affected big time and the rest
are barely if at all. Is this the intention?
