So after being back here on DDO for awhile, I begin to notice that those of us that are similar in beliefs and political aspects seem to form groups and stick together. I'm Christian and very conservative and most of my friends on here are Christian and have similar political views as I do. It seems like on the forums that most people with similar beliefs seems to more often then not stick together and defend one another. I was wondering what your thoughts are on this, considering that we are such a diverse interweb community, are there 'clicks' on DDO?

Don't talk about the DDO Elite.

I say, yes and no..

The Holy Knoxian Church. It's not a clique, but it's the organization at the head of the website. His Holiness Saint Dogknox, Defensor Fidei, illuminates these most afflicted forums.

Bench please, there aren't enough remotely good humor debaters to make a decent clique.

Okay, let me explain a little something to you, kid.

There are two types of people here.

Those whowork for the DDO Mafia (AKA The DDO Elite) led by Imabench.

And those who aren't.

There aint none thing such as "cliques" here.

You either provide us the ELO and the Wins, Join us (with the possibility of getting back stabbed), or GTFO.

In both cases the answer is no... with a few exceptions

There aren't really any cliques. Some of us do tend to interact with certain people more than others (like I'm more inclined to talk to thett, Zaradi, Oryus, and BlackVoid than anybody else), but that's because we often have similar interests or ideas. If you want to talk to someone, you can always message that person. Everyone (even LordKnukle) generally responds. The people who don't aren't worth your time anyways-I wouldn't bother with them.
