Has anyone noticed that there are 10 debates on the homepage that all have the exact same title, one right after the other: "Morality is not relative?", and they all updated at the same time, 5 hours ago?

Or any man that breathes on earth.

I suppose the real question is, is there anyone who can explain how that happened/whether it's a bug or not.

Every so often you'll notice that a large number of debates are started on the same topic (this usually occurs at least once every couple of months).

Nearly every time this is the case, it is because a school is using the site to debate whatever subject they have been covering.

That is the case in this instance as well, as the class appears to be covering objective morality.

This debate even starts with a reference to the class:

So, hence, this is basically a kiddy site?

Like everything else on DDO, it's a conspiracy among the DDO "elite"
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%

DDO Illuminati are taking over the site in the guise of children.

Not merely the guise, they actually skinned living children to make special suits to wear while debating online.
