Are people on DDO sheep who need to be told what a good work/idea is
Debate Rounds (5)
these people can not tell for themselves what a good work/idea is
these people go along with group think as they dont have the courage to go against the groups ideas
these people dont have the courage to be the odd person out and take a position that the group disparages
these people are afriad to be different from the group and just go along with the group think for fear of being criticized
"Loyalty to the group requires individuals to avoid raising controversial issues or alternative solutions, and there is loss of individual creativity, uniqueness and independent thinking
Group members try to minimize conflict and reach a consensus decision without critical evaluation of alternative viewpoints, by actively suppressing dissenting viewpoints, and by isolating themselves from outside influences
Sheep can't use computers or smartphones as they are both physically and intellectually incapable of it. Thus, the resolution is incorrect.
Even metaphorically, if poeple on DDO were all sheep then no one would oppose anyone and debating could not occur.

ok clever dick-with semantics
let see you put your objectivity where yor mouth is
you mouth off objectivity
so tell us 4 things good with colin leslie dean poem Narcissist-let see if you are a sheep bleating the group anthem that deans poetry sucks
or the great free thinker you think you are
My opponent has resorted to ad hominem and hasn't brought forth a single argument.
We are not sheep.
Sheep (1): A domesticated ruminant mammal with a thick woolly coat and (typically only in the male) curving horns. It is kept in flocks for its wool or meat, and is proverbial for its tendency to follow others in the flock.
This species doesn't use the Internet.
If they did, who is the shepherd?
all he replied with was
"My opponent has resorted to ad hominem and hasn't brought forth a single argument"
he thus demonstrates my point con has not the courage to step out of line with the other sheep
he also probably cant tell what is good with them as no one has told him what is good with the poem as con probably lacks original thinking
Why must I name four good things about a poem to substantiate my arguments?
That is ridiculous.

because people/sheep on here have baged the poem
so for you to name 4 good things about the poem would be going against the opinions of the sheep on here
it would show you can come up with 4 original good things in the face of no one ever telling you what is good about the poem
that would prove 2 things
1) you have the courage to step out of line with sheep opinion
that you can think for your self with out someone else telling you what is good about deans poem
thus demonstrating that I am wrong in calling everyone on here sheep
Sheep can't use the internet.

Reasons for voting decision: I have no idea what Pro is talking about. Pro's arguments seem inconsistent as to what it would mean for DDO to be sheep. Pro additionally calls con a "dick-with-semantics," or maybe criticizes con for "dick[ing] with semantics." Either case, that was random rudeness. I don't see how citing this poem proves that DDO is unwilling to debate counter-culturally, or why that would make DDO sheep. However, I do think Con might have debated more thoroughly rather than taking "sheep" to be a literal term, which is obviously isn't (although Pro does not directly clarify that).
