Ya'll people need to realize becoming president doesn't automatically give you mod powers. Making all these promises about what you are going to do with the site if elected is nothing short of childish-like nonsense for the most part, as is talking about what certain members would do if elected. The elections are something staged by the users of ddo. Not Juggle. Why does everyone seem to think Juggle are just going to give ban powers and such to people just because they win some user staged election, which usually is just a popularity contest? Innomen got mod powers because he's respected, mature, has a good relationship with Juggle, and is a good guy. Winning the election helped yes, I'm sure. But Juggle never would have made him mod if they didn't like him, and know he was trustworthy. Let's just say jimtimmy got elected for example. He has a good enough platform, but I'd say the chances of him accomplishing even a small majority of it, is small. Why would Juggle give a kid who is not even well liked here, is constantly involved in flame wars, and has no relationship with juggle, mod powers? It's just unlikely. Currently the number one issue for each candidate is whether Juggle will find him trustworthy. I think Blue steel, Thadeus, and OreEle would be the best choices as well as some others, because I think they would be more likely to get mod powers, especially OreEle, who I have always thought would make a fantastic pres.

You're right, and most people know it's silly...but they won't change. That's because the motivation behind the thread you're alluding to was not necessarily a care for the election, but rather an opportunity to write, at length, about oneself.

On a sidenote, Ore_Ele should definitely run for president

Actually, you're quite mistaken. That's how it used to be before Juggle. The president has actual moderating powers.

Innomen has stated consistently that the president =/= mod powers. He would like the president to be something more then a popularity contest, but there is no way that Jimtimmy would ever get mod powers even if he became president.

JT,
1 - Ive had to go on PM's to get you to calm down from attacking other candidates
you have been absolutely vicious towards people like Royal, Nonentity, 000ike.
2 - Youve caused a few of them to leave this site
3 - Your only 17 years old
4 - You think that an elite group of people control all of DDO
5 - You think that people live in constant fear of being banned
6 - You choose a vice presidential candidate who a month ago left the site because he was suspected of multi accounting
7 - Youve created more threads to yourself than anyone else I know
8 - You have one of the most hateful profile pictures ive ever seen which really implies how little you care about other's feelings
9 - Youre an angry individual who attacks people mercilessly on the forums
10 - You think there is a DDO "establishment"
http://www.debate.org...
11 - You openly accused me of wanting to ban you which is completely false
12 - You use to be an ANARCHIST

You have created threads saying stuff saying "Nonentity just announced that she is leaving DDO because of me. A few days ago, Royalpaladin blocked me. So, I have obviously struck some nerves. So, I want to say this to all of the people out there that find me so disgusting, go ahead and leave or block me. I don't care....And, good riddance"

You create threads single handedly designed to attack people "000ike and Nonentity are making this website so unwelcoming that any new conservative member just gets assaulted with all kinds of allegations."

And most importantly, you have openly claimed that "We need to consider banning Nonentity and 000ike for degrading this site. It is utter insanity."

You have complete disregard for others and act like youve done nothing wrong while all of us simply stand by and watch you parade around this site like a pompous assh*le who has no sense of respect for anyone else and cries like a b*tch every time someone you dont like does ANYTHING, and the thought of you running for president makes me want to rip off my own d*ck and throw it in a river.

THATS why I hate your a**

Person on DDO - "I am not sure that I have seen 000ike and nonentity do anything wrong. Could you elaborate more?

JT - Other than showing themselves to be idiots, they are already accusing my friend of multi accounting."

JT - " the only reason I said they should be banned is because they have asked for me to be banned in the past."

JT - "But, I do want people who accuse me of being too nasty to Royalpaladin and 000ike to understand the kind of dirty things they have been doing to me."

JT said this regarding Izbo10
"Like him or not, the guy is brilliant. Perhaps, too brilliant"
http://www.debate.org...

JT - "'When I'm president, people like Izbo would never be banned. In fact, I would not reserve the power to ban at all."

JT - "Banning guys like nono is one thing.... banning a guy like Izbo, who is just being rude, is just wrong."

Jimtimmy I could write a book with your quotes and fill it with enough material showing how much of an insensitive bastard you are towards people who contribue to this site, then go and advocate turning a blind eye on a**holes like Izbo saying he shouldnt have been bad and that being rude to people is perfectly fine, and you have said enough crazy bullsh*t to get the number of people who are insane enough to vote for you to be cut in half....... From 6 people to 3 people............

Imabench,

I don't know if you think all of those things you said were funny. I certainly don't find them amusing.

I have tried to be nice to you the entire time I have been on this site. I know I have disputes with other members, but I never thought you had such a strong disliking for me.

I will admit that it is somewhat hurtful to get such scathing and passionate attacks from someone who I have never attacked in the past.

I am sorry that I have struck such a nerve in you. I really wasn't trying to get you to dislike me or anything.

I hope you will consider giving me a shot at being a decent person in your eyes one day.

JT Quote "No, not banning people at all is better..."
7 and a half minutes later
"Nobody should ever be banned unless very, very extreme circumstances apply..."
7 and a half minutes after THAT
"No Banning!!! That is my platform"
http://www.debate.org...

"I am running on the Anti Banning Party... our platform is anti banning"

This is JT's reaction towards people putting porn everywhere on the site after someone asked him what he would do

"Right. So someone joins and starts posting porn everywhere, and we should just ignore them?

JT - You can ignore their posts"

JT - "Answer: Why do we need a 'government' at all?"

JT - "Lol, I'm still running... and there is a good chance I will win... The silent majority supports me and the anti banning platform is quite popular"..

A few weeks later JT got 6 votes out of 63 total....

Shall I go on explaining why I despise you and think you will bring this site to ruins?

I will also say that, while I certainly deserve plenty of blame in the disputes I have been in, I do not think it is fair to put the blame entirely on me. Many of the people I have argued with have been quite vicious against me as well. This does not justify some of the things I said in heated moments, but it should be taken into consideration.

JT if you want respect from people you have to prove you are better than those who sh*t on you and show how you are being the better person. You are most certainly NOT the better person though judging your reaction to every and any insult you've ever gotten. You arent the better person in this election, you werent the better person in the LAST election, and as far as Im concerned you are never going to change for the better because you almost never act like a complete f*cking a**hole towards people and then apologized to their face in front of people admitting you got carred away, instead you claim how they made you do it and you couldnt control yourself...

Any derp who cant control how he reacts towards one person who disagrees with him is nobody who deserves to try to control something as great as DDO...

Well, I guess that is too bad.

I really don't know what I did to spark such a passionate hate for me within you.

I don't recall us every having any sort of conflict. But, if you really dislike me, that is your choice.

I read them all. I still don't think you're being entirely fair to me. I'm really not that bad of a guy if you give me a chance, at least in my opinion.

Everyone knows that I have said some things in heated moments that were not entirely appropriate, but that does not necessarily justify such passionate hate.

I just don't think you're being entirely fair to me.

That was something I said.

Look, to be honest, I am just a lonely kid who loves politics and arguing. That is what I am. Yes, I get angry sometimes. I don't deny that.

But, I don't deserve all this hate. I just want to argue the things that I believe in.

If I had friends, I would be out with them. But, you know what, I don't.

It is fine if you don't like my beliefs. But, I just do not think you should have me with such passion. I really do try hard to debate the topics that I am passionate about.

This is the one place where I have a few friends with like minds. I really do care about this site for this reason. You may not like me, but this hate seems like a bit too much.

If I had friends, I would be out with them. But, you know what, I don't.
If your actions towards people on DDO is similar to your actions towards people in real life then the fact that your on here all the time wouldnt suprise me at all

It is fine if you don't like my beliefs. But, I just do not think you should have me with such passion. I really do try hard to debate the topics that I am passionate about.
Thats not called passionate thats called stubborn, and it is not a quality you want to have if your trying to win a popularity contest that is 3 months from now...

This is the one place where I have a few friends with like minds. I really do care about this site for this reason. You may not like me, but this hate seems like a bit too much.

Deal with it
