it is odd...it is just too fun. Suspicious. But why do you think it is fun?

I say debating in forums and in actual debates.

Or it could be the idea off having a community where you can freely voice your opinion on issues of mas importance to you. A community that neither judges you nor criticizes you on your believes (As long as your not a troll about it). Or it could be the enjoyment of being around so many intelligent ppl. Who know??????

Well the intelligence is certaintly nice but where do you hide where no one criticizes your beliefs? Lol.
The wise have eyes in their heads, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realizethat the same fate overtakes them both.
Then I said to myself,
"The fate of the fool will overtake me also.
What then do I gain by being wise?"
I said to myself, "This too is meaningless."
For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!
- Ecclesiastes 2:14-16

lol no. The community judges and criticizes a great deal, but the freedom to speak and be seriously considered is still there.

A fine example of the intelligence you can expect from DDO. Not just the ability to find something wrong, but the ability to find a much better alternative.
