Having our valued and respected members leave doesn't fix the problem, it makes things worse.

Are you really gonna let a couple of weak, small minded twerps run you off a site? Thats showing a sign of weakness on your part. Theres no need to leave the last bastion of intellectual frontlines.

Theres an Infowar and a war on for your mind! Don't surrender.

There's also this pathetic elitist sentiment that this website has its gems and its undesirables, and the precious intelligent ones (self-described) must form their only little club to belittle and demean those they don't like to perpetuate the delusion of their highness.

Indeed, leaving does not solve problems, but neither does this wretched mentality of superiority so many of you seem to harbor.

Listen, I'm better than you, so I didn't even bother reading this.

Fyi, I view you as a valued respected member.

Though, this post was addressing it from their perspective. I'm not bothered by any member, I welcome the opposition, that's what this site is about. But if youre a racist, ill still consider that person a weak, small minded NWO puppet who fell victim to divide and rule. However, on debate site their welcome to have a racist perspective and I'm welcome to despise them.

I like you Ike
But I don't think we have some harbored sense of superiority.
We should just try to get people to act more civilized in DDO and for people to stop leaving just because animosity is growing in DDO
It's turning DDO to sh1t
And I wasn't referring to you
A lot of the forums I see, I see people always attacking you and I don't know why
Because you seem like an intelligent perspective member, so I don't get why everyone is always attacking you
I haven't been in DDO long so I really have no idea why there's no much animosity towards you

Leaving solves the problem of feeling negative emotions caused from small-minded twerps... If it's one or two specific people, you can ignore them individually. When it gets to be too much, sometimes the best option is to leave. And sometimes it is the collective people have a problem with and not specific people. Why stay?

It's very disheartening that the site has been hijacked by n00bs. Sometimes I want to leave, but then I remember that I'm mailing them all pipe bombs and that will solve the problem. :)

Leaving solves the problem of feeling negative emotions caused from small-minded twerps...

But if you know your position is superior, why let it get to you? You should laugh at their pity, not wallow away in despair because of them.

Uh... how many racists are there? jimtimmy... and... ?

Why run?

I haven't had a problem with anyone here. Most of your "problems" are actually made-up, I would say. They fill a drama-vacuum.

But I have a lot more time on my hands now which I've spent on things like--Oh, I don't know--social interaction.

My problems? I'm not the one with problems, it's those who are leaving who have problems with certain people here.

I have no complaints really other than respected members and quality contributors leaving the site.

But I have a lot more time on my hands now which I've spent on things like--Oh, I don't know--social interaction.

I live on my own with 4 other college-aged roommates and 4 other friends who live right down the block. Trust me, there's plenty of social interaction in my life.

If this site is majority bigots with no interest in information, learning, or sharing knowledge, then this site isn't worth being a member of.

It has nothing to do with winning.

My views aren't changing a thing. All I do these days is log on and throw tantrums in idiotic threads.

That is a huge waste of time.

So many.

If it were only Jimtimmy, this whole situation would be nonissue.

It's actually perceptively a large proportion of the site.

Large enough so that I no longer learn while I'm here, I'm no longer inspired, and I no longer share my own knowledge.

I'm just clicking through boring thread after boring thread until I get to yet another dickface calling black people stupid.

And by the way --

For all of you that thought it was OH SO IMPORTANT to ban Izbo because of your single issue with him, notice how most of the people that appear in the "new members thread" all but disappear days after they join.

Wonder why.

Might I add that I still loved it here while he was around.

And ANOTHER thing --

I notice that people are extremely hostile to some users for absolutely no reason.

Like Alfonzo.

People practically treat him like a Socratic gadfly, attacking him for single statements and questions.

Seriously?

He has a thread going right now that he's struggling with -- it's practically on life support.

No participation whatsoever.

The stupid niggerkike conversation, on the other hand, is pushing 200 pages.

I'll admit I haven't been fair to Alfonzo in the past. He clearly is quite bright and has some great ideas (and I have seen evidence that he can present he cases clearly), but for some reason he can often be very vague or define things in ways which make his statements tautological (particularly in politics).
