Loneliness can do too much to a person. When a person feels neglected, inferior, and lacking socially, they do many things. They lie, they cheat, they go against their own morals and values, purely to satisfy their greed.

An alleged Christian has succumbed to this evil. He has come to a site where intelligence is valued, and lacking any, was shunned. He was ENVIOUS. He started trolling the forums, causing disruption, fooling no one, because his ignorance was blatantly visible underneath a minor veil. After this veil was ripped aside and his ignorance exposed, his PRIDE could not withstand it. He was a shattered man, brought down by pure logic and reason.

He became WRATHFUL, and decided to attack this group, trying to bring harm where he was harmed, even though he knows that vengeance should only be carried out by the Divine. His LUST for revenge, his GLUTTONY for self redemption, and his GREED for gaining artificial respect brought on out of fear, led him to perform shameful, Unchristian acts. Acts that his children would be ashamed to witness. Instead of building himself up in the eyes of the group, he decided to be LAZY. He decided to strike back at those who he believed to have struck him. He decided to steal the tunics from those who he believed to have stolen his. He has violated the rules of his religion, and shamed every community he is representative of.

But his loss was all for naught. He is a failure. He was a failure before, he is a failure now, and he will always be a failure.

Due to either purposeful inaction, or perhaps inability, the moderators are unable to repair the damage. So I write this petition and proclamation.

RACE DOWN THE HILL!

I'll have the most unreasonable losses in all debate.org

Now, my self proclaimed title of "best bad debater" will actually be true, ironically XD

I never cared about the win ratio anyway; what good are skewed statistics?

I am sorry, but since when is someone who vote bombs out of spite, a "terrorist"? Not that I don't support you're proclamation, which I have been asserting from the very start, but it is kind of stupid to refer to what's going on as "terrorism".

It's called internet terrorism.

A terrorist is a person who maliciously acts to inspire fear in an innocent group in order to obtain selfish goals.

Josh has made it clear that he is using vote bombing as a threat against The Cleaners. I did used to care about my win ratio back when it meant something, I'm not afraid to admit it. Many here claim they never cared about it, I'm not sure if they are honest or not, but I used to. I liked my win ratio. I'd like for it to be high. But after a while, it has changed.

Now, the lower your win ratio, the more evidence there is that you are hated/discriminated against. I find that amusing, so I sank myself down to 0 to make several points.

First of all, no further damage can be done to me, making Josh's threats fall on at least one pair of deaf ears.

Second, I am less restricted in what debate topics I feel like picking up.

Most importantly, I'm a living example for others of how the win ratio means nothing. I have over a dozen debates where I have lost by a tremendous amount where my opponent has forfeited most if not all their rounds.

Well that is silly. It has absolutely nothing to do with terror. It seems to me to ben an ignorant adaptation of a word due to political climate.

So you think that Josh was trying to inspire terror? I think that's stretching it a tad. Look, I dont want to get into a huge argument over this. I support your message, I just think you worded this pretty badly.

I admit you're right in saying this is a little over the top. He may not be trying to inspire terror, but he is trying to further his goals by taking advantage of people's fear of getting vote bombed, as he is using it as a threat against "The Cleaners" to disband. Thus, he is not a literal terrorist, but the shoe isn't too many sizes too large for it not to fit him.

I haven't cared about my win ratio since my very first day on DDO. It is meaningless, you don't win anything. You can't use it on a resume. It's an entertainment site. My voting record is unknown anyway. It has been vote bombed so many times it "IS" funny. 100% win ratio to 0% like 3 times.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%
