Does DDO have any political parties that are there to express views of how DDO should be ran, etc.? If so, what are the parties and what do they hold?

No, due to lack of whips, ideologies of how DDO should be ran (due to lack of actual leadership styles beyond "good" and "tyrannical"), and lack of constituencies.

DDO doesn't need political parties because the costs of mounting a campaign are so low that there is no need for a political infrastructure to support candidates.

The only incentive for parties would be to increase vote-gathering capabilities, and that's just campaigning.

For a while left wingers believed that there was a "Conservative Voting Block" which was very idiotic, but no we have no political parties.

There used to be parties, mostly for fun like the Party Party. Askbob, Bluesteel, Panda, me, and others were also part of the Rivalslib Party which pushed an official platform in the elections. Askbob and I have both run for President and lost under the party banner.

This. We actually used to have political parties and all the political parties collapsed.

The first election was between Ragner and Danielle on the Right and Left respectively. Ragner won. The second election was between actual parties, Ragner and Wjmelements in the Liberty Party and lexiholic and Volkov in the Reform Party. Lexiholic won. The third election had Cody and Ann with the Freedom Party against Freedo and Koopin in the Party Party (innomen ran as Independent) with Cody winning. Innomen has won the last two elections, not with any party I don't think.

We do still think there is a conservative voting bloc. Or at least me.

While a CVB may very well exist, PM's to post unvoted debates don't necessarily count as voting blocs. If this were so I'd have been involved in numerous ones over the year I've been here. It's only a voting bloc if it is started with the intent to vote one way. A PM with a few frequent voters doesn't mean they joined just to vote together. Your quote by itself doesn't prove that. Of course I'm pretty sure CVB's have been proven to exist before, though not necessarily with this new batch of conservatives.

Just what exactly are the duties of being president of DDO. I know they don't entail shutting down forums that are directed at individual users for the expressed purpose to make personal attacks and insults. What if anything does this position entail.
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%

Yes, I was totally nuts to think that there was a conspiracy with a DDO elite and liberals.

The sane people believe in a different conspiracy involving conservatives.

I love liberal logic.

There is no DDO elite. And if there is/was, I am not involved in it.
