There is no way this person is serious about anything he says. There is no way a person can be that dense and that misinformed. He has to be a troll. Furthermore, he ignores everything you say and then calls you a troll.

We should also do these petitions for other trolls to remove them as well. The best way to get rid of trolls is to stop responding to them.

Sign a pledge never to respond to anything he says:

I don't believe he's a troll. He seems to genuinely believe what he says. In fact, I used to have almost the exact same beliefs as him when I first came to this site.

He definitely believes what he says, I just don't respond to him naturally because there are plenty of other users who I can gain more from responding to without being drawn into the kind of endless debate he's been having with Cliff. He's not the only user I avoid getting into discussions with.

DK, is Justin is a Troll this is what he wants to see, if he isn't and he is just a curious individual this would be member harassment.

If his behavior is out of line report it to the mods, if someone else (like me) interacting with him is detrimental to the site send them a PM.

What I find curious is that someone can get banned and their debates deleted for starting a bunch of silly debates, but someone like Justin can rant about how :

-homosexuals need to be put into camps
-they are disgusting, wrong, broken, unnatural, etc.
-just as bad as pedophiles, bestiality, etc.

Seems odd that hate speech is tolerated but making debates like "sunglasses should be mandatory for lifeguards" get you banned.

This.

This site has been turned upside down. People focus on spam debates but don't care about abusive and threatening behavior. People will send 250 reports for debates like you mentioned but ignore real abuses.

These silly debates are a result of the three debate rule. The rule causes bannings that give birth to trolls. The trolls make way for more banning and more trolls. It won't end dealing with it this way.

nah justin's a fine member in my book no spamming or votebombing just because he shares outlandish beliefs doesn't mean he should be removed.
Me -Phil left the site in my charge. I have a recorded phone conversation to prove it.
kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos

Well, I guess Atheists can't make debates saying God doesn't exist or that he is immoral because it might "offend" the Theists or it might "defame" Yahweh.

Also, if you can make a rational argument against homosexuality without ad homs, then so be it. That shouldn't be a violation at all given the nature of debate.

You could classify 99% of the posts as harassing defamatory or abusive. You guys are being idiots. And that's saying a lot coming from someone who is accused of driving away everyone.

I always get genuinely pretty pissed off when people start waving around the TOS like it's the US constitution. It's a vaguely worded piece of garbage that hasn't been updated since the king of bastards created it.

Justin can annoy me, but I don't think he's a troll, he seems serious. I like responding to his posts. I disagree with him, and that's why I like having him here. I'd get bored if I agreed with everyone.

Well, Justin's own "outlandish" beliefs doesn't merit his removal, but really can turn on in people. And his behavior, to Clff--for example, has been rude and inappropriate. I suggest we merely ignore him until he learns that he should better his behavior.

Please post my personal info. I'm calling you out on your hollow threats. Your a liar and scared if you don't.

Please pm my info. Call my parents. Call my employer. Please please please.

Have your threat squad call my house. Blow up my email. Anything, just so I know your not complelety full of horse crap.

Call my Internet provider. Please. Anything, everything, something.

I'm the worst troll DDO has ever seen remember. That should warrant all of your harassment.

Come on askbob, I'm begging you to stop threatening and start doing.

He's funny when he loves to make comment wars, call Jesus a "zombie savior", cal me an "idiot", insult Grape and say that his atheism is just a part of his clique, calling ReformedArsenal "Retarded.Arsenal" and Cliff.Stamp "Clog. Stamp", refuse to read arguments, and even sent several debates to those who voted against him.

I hope you'll see why there's such a big hype about Izbo10, or as Reformed Arsenal has called him, Bozo10.

Geo, there is a difference between debate and forum ranting. If for example someone was to make a debate "Slavery was a positive influence on the African race." this would be a controversial topic yes, but one which should be able to be debated.

Similar you could debate "The holocaust was a justified action against the Jewish people in Germany" or "Homosexuality is immoral". However it would be against the TOS to spam "blacks should go back to africa if they are not picking cotton", "money grubbing jews should be gassed" and "homos are no better than pedophiles" in the forums.

These are not debates, they are hate speech and clearly against the TOS.

Geo, there is a difference between debate and forum ranting. If for example someone was to make a debate "Slavery was a positive influence on the African race." this would be a controversial topic yes, but one which should be able to be debated.

Similar you could debate "The holocaust was a justified action against the Jewish people in Germany" or "Homosexuality is immoral". However it would be against the TOS to spam "blacks should go back to africa if they are not picking cotton", "money grubbing jews should be gassed" and "homos are no better than pedophiles" in the forums.

These are not debates, they are hate speech and clearly against the TOS.

Not if there is a legit argument behind it.

That shouldn't be a violation at all given the nature of debate.

I agree. Especially for the fact that in a debate, one should refrain from giving hate speeches or ranting and venting at everyone whom he/she disagrees with.

well boo freakidity hoo the next time someone asks for his removal on such an idiotic basis I'll be sure to give the people crying something to cry about as their personal lives are hoisted out in the public for everyone to see and make fun of.

So ask askbob can assume this above threat applies to me as well as I don't support open hate speech which is clearly racist, homophobic, bigoted and ignorant.
