This is an easy debate for a newbie to win, I think. At least a smart newb with some research ability and a sense of humor. [Not necessarily mature humor, either.:D]

Yes, the title is self-referential in some respects...:) Oh well. Takes one to know one sometimes.

The debate was removed by customer support. No reason given. I don't suppose Imawiener's feelings were hurt?

It was reported a few times because of an anti-semetic comment by your opponent (which wont necessarily get something deleted), and several times for being an attack on another member (which may get deleted based on the severity and circumstances). So the fact that it was reported many times put it on my radar. But I ultimately deleted it because it had no value whatsoever. I don't think there was even a debate happening in the debate, so it was just worth removing. I'm not sure the subject of the debate even knew it ever existed.

Airmax,

Cool. Thanks for the explanation.

It seemed to me a mild bit of teasing compared to some of what I've seen on DDO. However, it truly wasn't a debate, and it was an attack [if gentle, IMHO] on another member.

Thanks for your work.

Cheers
