I've been here for a while (I had a different account that I loomed in about 5 months ago) and so far the big issues haven't changed at all. The three I look at the most have remained static.

Abortion is 51% to 49%
Gay marriage is 67% to 33%
Drug Legalization is 50% to 50%

Does anyone have any evidence that suggests they do change? Or did someone just make up the percentages?

They change with new members filling it out or me flip flopping.

Drug legalization changed 1% in the 6 months I have been here.

Stats on DDO are basically meaningless, considering the thousands of accounts that were made for a day, and them abandoned.

^^this...there are officially 37,818 accounts on this site. Of them, probably a good amount filled out at least part of the big issues (most probably filled out abortion). When you have a ton of people saying ya or nah for a particular issue, the more people you have, the closer it will get to 50-50.

Thats why I think we need to reset all of the big issues boxes on all accounts to N/S so the polling numbers are 0-0, then people fill it out so we have a more accurate poll there. Empty 3 years of old accounts.

I've sent them a serious bug concerning debate characters, and no reply for quite a long time. It's mere false hope to ask them for anything.

Juggle really doesn't like this site. I'm imagining a "don't bug us" approach.

I'd hunt down the members I like, gas them, then store their bodies in a freezer. Just so I don't miss y'all.
