In the Election of 2008, the owners of the site set out to have the presidential nominees go head-to-head in a public debate here. Sadly, it was to no avail.

But that was when the site was still young and small. Now, it is the most popular formal debating website in the world. I propose that the new owners take it upon themselves to allure the nominees, once again, into debating here. This is something that is definitely worth their invested time and effort if they accomplish it.

I would hope Innomen and our next DDO president would put in a good effort to get this point across to Juggle.

Personally, I don't think it would be a good representation of how they would act as president. They would have some guy with several PhDs write all the arguments and sign their name at the bottom. Besides, you don't get a lot of the other "tells" and tones that go with body language and voice, respectively.

Not saying it wouldn't be hella cool, I just don't think it would have the impact they would deem worth their time.

It would cause an influx of idiot partisan voters spamming "OBAMA 2012!!!" or "ROMNEY 2012 NOBAMA!!". It would be a cool debate, but the lasting damage would destroy the site as we know it.

I just dropped some fun in a charleslb thread, and they were all up in dat bitch. Negro doesn't really mean anything, negro. It's like bro, homie, homeslice, g-dizzle, or jeezy.

Oh. I would have never thought to look in a Charles thread. Very very good hiding spot.
