I was tired of arguing with comment section idiots who took authority in numbers rather than logic. I don't remember how I found this site... Maybe I typed in opinions? Idk. It was about abortion, though.

Dante's Inferno....

One day, many years ago, I was looking up information about Dante's inferno. Somehow I found my way to a comedy website called "Brunching Shuttlecocks." While spending some time poking around in other articles on that web page, I ended up at Fark.com (via one of their Photoshop contests).

I spend a good few years on Fark, eventually becoming a TotalFark member. I found myself drawn toward religious flamewars, often debating evolution, though flamewars were technically frowned upon.

I decided to find a place where debating/arguing was not merely accepted, but was the raison d'etre. I ended up in a Google Group called "Atheism vs. Christianity." Again, I spend a few years there, before growing bored due to the stagnant user base. Some of us branched out and tried starting our own communal blog, but I wasn't really inspired and only made a few posts. While blogging, I searched for more formal debate sites, eventually making my way here.

All-in-all, a journey that was a decade in the making.

I needed smart arguments to steal for Parliamentary debate. Turns out, a month later, someone from another school had the same idea (This was after my best pony claim to fame).

When she used DDO as a source in her speech, what followed was the most kickass cross-examination ever.

I was looking into the issue of a Goku vs. Superman battle. There were forums, where arguments were put forth in absolutely ridiculous ways, but there was one debate I found here that felt incredibly in depth. I made an account, did a crappy debate, got discouraged, closed it down, and a couple months later, started up this account.

We had do do a speech in English about a modern day issue and I was taking the piss.

Search engines make it easy for you to find a site. You can also go directly to the homepage of the search engine, ie Google and do a search there (for more information on how to use Google effectively, try Google Search or Google Cheat Sheet.

typed "debating website" in google...

I first saw the site in December 2010 but didn't make an account until July 2011.

I was in 8th grade S&D, and I saw that someone has discarded a voting ballot for a debate called

Resolved: Recreation marajuina should be legalized.

I remember that con was Koopin, but I could never find that debate.

I then started playing mafia, and have been hooked to the site ever since.

I typed, "Debate politics" into a Google search. I looked through a few sites, and liked DDO's format the best.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.
