Why all the hate? All I see on the forums these past couple of days is "F*ck you's" by 16kadams, "Imabench calming the f*ck down" by Jimtimmy, and a WHOLE lotta sh*t by Inferno. Why all the hate? Why not love? We shouldn't be like this.

In all seriousness, I think DDO could do much better if respect were a rule, and enforced. Communities with flaming, trolling, swearing, etc, attract only a small fraction of people, and I don't think the current atmosphere is really conducive to attracting the kind of people it should be attracting.

I think that all the childish profanity should be reported. If there are enough complaints, it will be deleted.

Having all the garbage discourages people interested in debating the issues and favors children acting out their angst.

Well... the various flame threads should be deleted, for the sake of the integrity of the forum and the dignity of everyone who posted foul things on them. It is the natural tendency of adolescents to behave like adolescents, so I can almost forgive adolescent behavior, but at the same time I would prefer that it have never have occurred. There are, obviously, some users whose actions precipitated further actions, but collectively all of those actions form a stream of ostentatious tragedy.

I do think that the function of this site has changed though. When I joined the ratio of serious members to fools was considerably less than it is now. Perhaps that's just because there is a vocal minority, but stupid debates, stupid forum posts and even stupider online gossip/drama/omghesaidwhat?#geteven does get old. There are online intellectual communities that do weed out most of the nonsense (by requiring credit card verification for membership -ergo VERY few members under 18), but I would venture to say that this is far from an intellectual community. That is not to say that there aren't some really fantastic people on this site (as I was telling another user last night, about 15 of them, of which Roy you are one), but the majority is dominated by hoopla, and I don't particularly expect that to change. I sign on because it's entertaining, because it's the summer and I'm bored and because there are a few things (like discussing philosophy, morality etc.) that I really do enjoy.

I also enjoy the vast range of perspectives. There are a lot of -even though some are just ridiculous- very interesting people on this site. Some demonstrate annoying characteristics, but ultimately they are still very interesting people, and their thoughts and attitudes towards various topics -no matter the quality of justification- are very unique, and that, I think is good. That some of those people act out may be not especially desirable, but in the end one can reasonably expect nothing less, given the conditions.

In the end of it, people want different things out of the site, and the tone of the site is largely set by what the most vocal of those people want. For the most part, that is neither good nor bad, it simply is what it is. Just my thoughts, anyway...

I agree with what you posted earlier, there are a lot more idiots now. I think the amount of intelligent people is the same if not greater than it was when I joined, but they're now heavily outnumbered.

Case and point to your earlier lament: http://www.debate.org...

And I figured you did, and yes there are, both more idiots and more intelligent people. I suppose it's the natural order of things, though, for that to be the case.

Back when I was a lurker, not that I've been here for a long time or anything, the thought-provoking debate demographic was significantly larger and was what incentivized me to create an account. Finding debates worth a read now seems to require quite a bit more sifting...

I suppose there's always Mafia.
There is an art, it says, or rather, a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. " Clearly, it is this second part, the missing, which presents the difficulties.

I used to look at the forums and rarely post, because much of it was far above what I could coherently discuss. Now, not so much. It's a bit sad really
