Look at the images in some of these. I am surprised they were even allowed to be uploaded. I thought this was a debate website where complex topics are debated. I guess not......

Not anymore sadly, and I am going to harp on this issue either until it's fixed or I get enough people to go over to edeb8 to use that site exclusively.

When I first saw your show back in November I thought you were exaggerating about the opinions and polls sections. Over the last month or so I have came to the same conclusion as you; that the opinions and polls sections of this site are problematic. Many the people who are in those sections don't want to debate or defend anything they say.

I ended up voting on the polls you promoted.

What are bad polls anyways?
The only problem I find is repeat polls, and polls that have a time relevance.

I voted on one poll that said, "will the broncos win against the sea hawks in the Superbowl"
After the fact, it's obvious the Broncos didn't win. But what about next year? Do the Sea Hawks even have a chance of making it to the super bowl?

I'm not going to link to it. I'm going to force you to sift through thousands of pages of irrelevant debates, forums, and opinions until you happen upon it. The search tagging is the main problem I have with this site.

I'm not mad at the debaters, the poll makers, the forum posters, or opinion miners. I do find that most of the posts are useless, and are in the irrelevant pile faster than they're being made. There is a post F16 that archives the Mafia games, I think it's the best forum post on DDO.

Maybe it can be done for debates and polls.

Not sure if you like laughing at these polls, or like looking at things that make you angry...

Seriously, I don't mean to be sassy, but if you don't like the polls section, like you expressed in other threads, don't look at them.

I know it's easy to just take a glance at the polls/opinions sections and look at the spam and just assume that's the state of it always. While the content of it clearly doesn't have the depth of the better debates on the site, the worst of the polls (spam/profanity/member attacks) don't stay there forever. Obviously someone isn't monitoring it 24/7, but the spam and otherwise terrible polls really are generally removed within 24 hours.

You can delete this thread. My rage is over and my points have been made effectively today.
