I have been doing research, and I think it is. Other debate sites are more like these forums, but this site is mush more...well...realistic. And it is easy to use and everyone is friendly (except izbo and trolls. Izbo insulted me the day before his ban on a PM, I deleted the message). But other than those problems this site is great.

There was a lot of research into this during the AnCap Exodus if I remember correctly, and the general consensus was that it was.

It happened a few months ago, I don't remember exactly how many. There was a problem with trolls, one in particular called Brainmaster. A lot of the ancaps got fed up with the lack of moderation and left for their own forum that they built. Some have since came back, some haven't, Askbob and Sieben got banned. This was all before innomen had mod powers, btw. We relied on Juggle for moderation, and if they had other priorities then we just had to deal with the trolls until they could ban them for us. This is really the condensed version of the story, if you want to see more of what was going on then go back a few months in the ddo forum. I think a lot of the threads are still there, though a few of them had to be deleted.

Phony anarchists, the lot of them. Clozet authoritarians what they were. Bunch of Rothbard quoting posers who had no idea what they were talking about. Might as well have been punks who determined their level of being an anarchist by the number of buttons they have on their face. Group of invalids. Nothing of importance was lost.

It was quite funny how the an-caps were probably the most authoritarian and disrespectful of property rights (even though an-caps are notorious for their respect for property rights and NAP).

I think so, I only wish there were more British members so I post debates that probably only other British people would be interested in.

So, basically a society of jimtimmys left DDO for another forum? What is this other forum/website called?

How was Brainmaster a troll? Was he even worse than izbo?

Speaking of the AnaCAP exodus, the AnaCAPs are usually against authority. Why, then, do they want moderation on debate.org? It is a question I could never fully understand.
