By newcomers........I can say that this is indeed a new era of Debate.org. There has been quite a few regulars who use to participate in this social online forum not long ago. Some of them were better than great ! But they have vacated the premises and went to much greener pastures. We know that this is a competitive world, and it is very hard to keep someones attention when your resolution is generic. People want a change, they love diversity, and things spontaneous. They do not like boring, as this will only cause them to regress
and forsake that which was promised. Debate.org has seen better days before, and it is past its prime, at least for now. Today things are different here, the atmosphere is jolly and I dont think it could have been any better. The rebels, the an caps, the infidels, and misfits will always be here in one form or another. We are being exposed to a more docile but vicariously eager breed of users now with great promise. So I say once again, that Debate.org lives/ Yes, she lives. What do you think ?

Come back askbob all is forgiven.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

I wish there was someone like that still around. I have 2 trolls in mind that need the boot. There are even enablers that are always trying to justify or rationalize what the troll does.

They weren't suspects. The people he got off the site were pretty damn obvious trolls who were bringing down the site.

No you don't.
In fact when inferno was interrogator askbob never went after him. He went after people based on his own definition of troll or someone he thought was ruining the quality of the site.

Lionheart? That dude did nothing, except being suspected of having multiaccounts(Which was proven wrong)
So why didn't he go after interrogator? People labeled him a troll, but no action, and i'm pretty sure that he had alot of accounts.

From what I heard the Interrogator had multiple accounts that were closed.
But he was well accepted offline and was critically acclaimed by some.
Trolling is done by most people here at DDO from time to time, but they just dont
call themselves out. Until someone does, then the word comes to life.
Otherwise, you can troll all day long, and it noone holds that individual accountable for their actions, they will keep going. I am not a troll by most definition of the word. Just a bearer of truth which can be as annoying.

Koopin was fun. But there were some great entertainers like Josh, Sieben, Badger the Original, and that yellow guy too. Oh yeah, Rogue is now a no show these days. Non Entity left and then came back for her own personal reasons.
But this place is still fun. I think the quality of topics is just as important as a good solid debate. If the topics are boring, then the threads do not get any air time.
If they are live, provocative, and stimulating, then they run high. So far, it looks like the threads have been very active.

WTF is this? DDO isn't "hijacked". The site is here for the purpose of people to use it. You can't say new people don't belong here. This is straight-up zenophobia. Get a grip.

Also, how could anyone by any stretch of the imagination think askbob's banning wasn't a stride in progress for this community? All the drama has gone down since it happened and that is no coincidence.

It was sarcasm you dimwit. The newcomers are of course welomed with open arms.
I think they are a great addition to this site. And the quality of DDO has improved much better than even I expected.

Lionheart was a huge revenge vote-bomber. Even when it wasn't for revenge, he would always vote seven points to the "winner" with a one-sentence RFD that usually had nothing to do with what was actually argued. His weird ad over-dramatized forum posts didn't help matters.

Some people (*cough cough*) did want to go after Interrogator. However, some others felt that he wasn't actually harming the site, so he didn't do anything.

Also, interrogator/inferno creates a lot of topics that get 30+ posts, and Juggle likes that. Its probably why they haven't closed Inferno yet even though they know he's multi-accounter.

Harming the site ? Being a bit selective arent we > Have you seen some of Izbos
antics lately ? That guy makes me dizzy ! His thread was over the 400 mark.
He made some of mine look small. LOL Anyway. Just focus on the positive before anything else. A troll is only as good as his next thread post. Remember that now.

Really, that's enough. You all need to calm down. Just because you don't agree with someone doesn't make him a dimwit. All this senseless arguing will amount to nothing.

1. Don't tell me something is enough or that I need to calm down.
2. Dimwit means he's an idiot, which he is. It's not because I disagree with him, it's because he's an idiot and if his intellect(wit) were a lightbulb it would indeed be dim.
3. It's a debate site therefore arguing is generally encouraged.

Debating is encouraged, arguing is not. The contract you agree to upon entrance to this website advises passion and denounces emotion. This website has rule of conduct to ensure that there is decency and professional behavior. Stop insulting people, no matter how you look at it, its wrong. Knock it off.
