Sorry if this offends anyone but from my limited exposure to DDOians I have found the following tendencies.

1: A history of marijuana abuse.
2: Low achievement professionally and educationally.
3: Excuses for the above on the grounds that "I'm a student."
4: Contempt for 'social skills' in favor of ability to name all formal fallacies in latin.
5: An inability to make money
6: Hatred of the newbs (if veteran).
7: Superiority complex/egomania/narcissism.
8: Lack of a life.
9: Statements that imply a lack of understanding of absolutely anything as long as they happen to be criticizing it at the moment.

I am beginning to wonder if many of them suffer from some sort of classifiable personality disorder?

If this post's number ends in 73 "Sorry if this offends anyone" is now a meme.

Is a DDOian simply a member of this site?

Sounds like something you found and edited off of /b/.

Just in case I get into some BS with FREEDO again about how he's NOT a narcissist.

So... what's there to destroy evil inside of and above the constitutional government?

Maybe you should do it lol I'm busting my butt currently over this mafia wiki. I-am-a-panda has been taking care of a lot of the bio's and demotivated pics. Wjm has been taking care of a string of hilarious texas pages the mafia wiki sidebar, and the big issues.

Wjm is a bureaucrat(able to add administrators), and I-am-a-panda is an admin

Well, the first 5 are pretty stereotypical of teens in general. The latter 4 aren't uncommon on a site that attracts intellectually-oriented and introverted kids. A lot of intellectuals are forged from being socially ostracized. The other characteristics are ego-salvaging defense mechanisms.

I would replace #9 with "The habit of criticizing everything just for the sake of doing so".

1: A history of marijuana abuse.

Nay. I'd say a minority of the users on this site don't smoke. You're just noticing the ones that are vocal about use (are you presuming all users to be abusers?) -- I can only think of 4 people on this site who talk about using pot.

2: Low achievement professionally and educationally.

Not really sure what that means. Most people here are in high school or college. As far as people's professions, I'd say where people end up is probably a long story riddled with personal choices and for you to deem them to be "low achievement" is kind of unfounded.

3: Excuses for the above on the grounds that "I'm a student."

I'd say most HS kids here brag about their grades and the college kids are all pretty much intellectuals...? I dunno. See Answer #2.

4: Contempt for 'social skills' in favor of ability to name all formal fallacies in latin.

Lol - no, they just pretend that they do on the internet to make themselves feel better about not having any social skills. I personally value social skills as the whole reciting of terms things really has no "value" to me in the real world.

5: An inability to make money

... I'm just not understanding because most people here are students ...? Anyway I love making moneys.

6: Hatred of the newbs (if veteran).

Only the really annoying ones. Which most tend to be... lulz (really).

7: Superiority complex/egomania/narcissism.

Obviously. I hope you know better to include yourself in this assessment :)

8: Lack of a life.

Sorta. These days.

9: Statements that imply a lack of understanding of absolutely anything as long as they happen to be criticizing it at the moment.

Haha yeah...


I am beginning to wonder if many of them suffer from some sort of classifiable personality disorder?

Yes - Definitely narcissism! Antisocialism, and probably some avoidant and histrionic people as well. We all have a little suttin suttin in each of us.

Agree with Kleptin: I would replace #9 with "The habit of criticizing everything just for the sake of doing so".

Sure, but it will go under the name "DDOians and will be registered as a meme.
