Approximately 9 minutes after I posted my argument in my debate against RationalMadman, I receive a message from him with the following two words:

"inferior bitch"

Does he have this kind of attitude to everyone on DDO? For those who are even slightly interested in the debate, here's the link:

I'm not exactly offended by this message of his, but more confused. Opinions from anyone other than RM?

RM has been waging jihad on his own win ratio for a while now. He probably thinks he has a shot at winning in your debate and so he's looking for a way to screw that up.

I don't know, he's mad. Nothing he does makes sense.

RM is a troll. Here are the 5 things to do when confronted by a troll.

1) Don't look at it
2) Don't touch it
3) Don't talk to it
4) Don't debate it (meaning put some restrictions on your debates if you want a serious debate)
5) DO NOT EVER REPLY TO IT, your just feeding the fire. A forum post like this is exactly what he wants you to do, he enjoys the spotlight, even if it's for the wrong reasons.

He specifically asked me to remove the restrictions on the debate and to issue the challenge to him.

RationalMadman and TheFool are two members whose personalities confuse me (well, in regards to how they transgress the once "inviolate" rules of decency).

I'm sure they've waged many wars, and lost just as many confrontations with members, though one can only learn to countenance their behavior through--as my dear friend, YYW would say, the virtue of "thick skin." :)

Just so you know, I'm not that offended by this (at least for now...)

Rather, I find it rather amusing that he has to be so irritated just from a debate.

Yeah. But of course, his mark will be forever felt on DDO as his parting message was "grow a pair" and he sent that to all his friends.

Go to "dashboard" or "profile" or whatever, then click "settings". There should be a tab there for you to edit your blocked list.

Eh, I'd be cautious if I were to speculate about the chance that a DDO member might be mentally ill, although I don't know how acquainted you are with him, or what has led you to such a guess/surmise.

But the Fool does have a very confusing personality, even if he can speak profoundly or make a good point every now and then.

Yes, it is a temp-ban. Consider a temp-ban a harsh warning.

I believe. I suppose his case might be analogous to that of the Fool, who was also temporarily banned (multiple times?).

Whether the ban will prove effective in stifling his supposed harsh and outlandish behavior is a question left to the whims of the future to answer, my fried.
