To represent the positives and not just the negatives, I will also start a list of great DDO quotes, or quotes that are surprisingly insightful. I'm especially looking for one's that seem to help make the world a better place.

Feel free to add what you've been inspired by from DDO debaters.

It's really hard to remember impressive responses, but I will return to this thread and post anything I find worthwhile.

This was a quote that I thought was really good:

At 3/15/2014 12:56:35 AM, Skepsikyma wrote:
One of the big problems that people get into when it comes to race is relying on the general attribution of specific sentiments or opinions to an entire racial group. Three prominent black writers say something concerning race, and all of the sudden someone is claiming that it's something which 'black people' believe. This applies to most groups, but especially those embroiled in social conflict. The best cure is not color blindness or gross generalization, but by treating everyone as an individual regardless of what 'group' they belong to, while keeping in mind, if it's a topic of conversation, that being included in that group may have subjected them to certain experiences. Instead of thinking 'oh, these black/gay/Christian people think x, y, z' think 'I wonder what this person thinks, and (if membership in a group is pertinent to the topic of conversation) if being black/gay/Christian influenced these views.' Never hold someone accountable for the beliefs of other members of their 'group'. Instead, ask them what they believe and why.

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

In essence, the world is fucked up and you can either ignore it, become cynical or bitter about it.

Typical imabench comment. You could have made a show called the weekly brilliant, but that would have required a bit more thought wouldn't it?
LOL, yeah, it's pretty amazing how they think they can "reason" with you. - Sidewalker, speaking of advocates for sexual deviancy.

So, my advice, Liberty, is to go somewhere else. Leave, and never come back. - YYW

And that's what I did. Contact me at http://www.edeb8.com... by the same user name if you have anything you'd like to say.
