I mean most of the time we just end up feeling angry and disgruntled at each other. Yet we always come back for more... The human brain is a confusing specimen.

Yes, I used "for" twice in a row. Is the grammar nazi police going to arrest me now?

It is one of the few places n the internet where you can have an intelligent discussion or debate. Granted there are allot of ignorant and or stupid people on DDO, but there are also allot of intelligent and knowledgeable people here too. DDO by its nature is a beacon to trolls, but where on the internet won't you find a troll?

Allow me to explain.

TUF has a problem with his face, so invokes God to damn it. This is clearly an ad hominen attack by TUF on TUF on his face.

DDO has been designed to stimulate the release of the neurotransmitter dopamine in its users. After about a day, dependency develops and it becomes extremely difficult to quit. After a week, Tolerance to the increase levels of the neurotransmitter has taken effect and withdrawal symptoms can become evident in users attempting to leave. Its as effective as nicotine without the negative physical effects.

cause the most addicting substances are those with unfixed variable time reinforcement. In other words, you don't when you'll get gratification from a troll, or receive no reward at all for your effort. But it happens sporadically.

Why do other people care how others type? They don't go around criticising peoples accents.

For a lot of us, it's the only place we feel we can intelligently interact people of equal or close to equal intelligent.

I suspect the average IQ of an active DDO member is far higher than the global average. We crave mental stimulation.
