Hello, this is more of an announcement than an actual debate.

Many people have been stirred up by the recent rising of the Brotherhood, a DDO organization that promotes community, free speech, and open mindedness. However redeeming these qualities are, it's worthy to note that white supremacy seems to be the foundation, and one of the requirements to join is to have a Neo-Nazi skinhead as a profile picture.

I believe the basic principles of the Brotherhood are honorable, but because of its racist tendencies, it has a bad name. I'm publically asking chairman Masterful to reform the Brotherhood and make it a group for everybody wanting community, free speech, and open mindedness. If this includes racism, so be it, but don't make it necessary to be racist (or have a racist background picture). I believe if this reform is made, then the Brotherhood will truly be a great organization and an asset to DDO.

I address your points on behalf of the Brotherhood, I speak as its leader and as a humble representative.

Presently, there is a heated discussion going on between members of the Brotherhood regarding the change of the current profile pictures. While we have not come to a decisive decision, we are experimenting with many different designs in order to find one that properly represents us.

We understand that our prior profile pictures do not properly represent us, however, our intention was never to use these pictures to represent hate or racism, rather, those pictures represented a visual sameness and equality, they also represented strength and a boldness to express ones honest ideas.

Importantly, you must understand that the Brotherhood is constantly growing, not just in man power, but in an ideological sense. Our ideas change and evolve as we explore various controversial debates. We don't want to be judged based on our profile pictures, we would rather be judged based on the substance of our debates and the discussions we have.

The Brotherhood would like to thank you Jim, for showing that you not only care for the well being of the wider DDO community, but you also care for each individuals rights to express their beliefs and discuss them freely. We believe we share mutual principles of fairness. We thoroughly look forward to working with you in the future and perhaps welcoming you into the Brotherhood at some point once a consensus can be made.

Kind regards,

Masterful, leader of the Brotherhood.

Hello, some updates, The Brotherhood are talking, and are making new profile pictures. The one i'm using is more of a test to see how good it is.
