23 points?

I think he meant comments. It had over 400 comments.

That's not necessarily a bad thing. People votebombed a lot in the past. I've read a lot of the older debates and many of them have 7-0 votes. There are also many votes ranging from 30-40 usually with no explanation as to why it was voted that way. It is better now. Even if we have only 5-6 votes, most have clear reasons for the decision.

Well, the RFD section was added by Juggle (Dec of 2010, I think), before then you only had your votes and the comment section. Infact, at the very beginning, (until around Nov 2009 or sometime) the voting was all private, so you couldn't even see who voted or how. Which caused big problems since people were always claiming votebombs with no evidence. Then it was opened so you could see how everyone voted and hell broke loose for a little while when everyone's dirty laundry that they thought was hidden was exposed. Good times.

Yes, Phil is the original creator of DDO, before he sold it to Juggle last year.

Even funnier is the fact that in response, Crystal instead of countervotebombing, gave herself 3 points! HAHAHA who does that?

At the time, voting was not public (you couldn't see who voted or how, only the total scores and the number of votes), so she probably just voted honestly.
