It seems there have been lately many meltdowns, threats of leaving, harrassing, insults and even suicide threats from certain members of this site. I am proposing this to put an end to such things and make this a better website.

Rights of all DDOers:

All DDO members are equal regardless of race, gender, age, intelligence capacity, hair color, genetics, income level, societal status, nationality, religion, physical condition or any sort of factor. The reason all members are equal is quite simple. All members are involved in the site, and so regardless of any personal factor, deserve a say in it. A variety of personalities exist, and we all deserve equal right to be inventive and build the site around us instead of destroying it with flaming and threats.

All DDO members being equal and recognizing each other's equality, agree to disagree at times, but be tolerant or at least ignore those they find adverse. Flaming begets flame and spam. Take away the fuel and the spark cannot generate a fire.

Lastly, all equal DDOers have the right to make valid suggestion towards new rules to be added to this website, as well as provide civilized and valid debate if they feel otherwise. Juggle cannot be forced to change anything.

And since we are equal, can we all forgive each other of past offense and start fresh and anew?

Sarcasm doesn't translate well over the internet.

Look, I'm trying to make an honest attempt to get to people. I don't know why you have to be rude if you disagree with me.

Why would reading this change the way I behave?

The same way that preachers get people to become Christians. It's called "convincing," and it's one of the main themes of this website.

I fail to see the convincing part.

I felt it wasn't that bad. If you want to make fun of me, go ahead.

It's just that these are things that are already universally recognized. Both here on DDO and in most civilized countries.

Interesting. I was under the impression that the target audience for preachers were already Christian.

It was aimed at the people who overreacted or went suicidal. Not only Dave.

Not always. Maybe that was a bad analogy.

I affirm that there is really nothing wrong with DDO. There is some casual drama but it wouldn't make sense if there wasn't. The site USED to have a problem before most of you were here. But I am here to attest that it has, in-fact, become increasingly more civilized.
