Max is an awesome person!
But he definitely wanted to take time to acknowledge you all who were chosen! :)

I think that loads of bull. YYW isn't that bad, but he's not that notable either.

YYW is many things to many people, but "humble" isn't one of them.

In other words, he's a prick.

Never shying away from controversy or letting everyone know how he feels about an :issue, YYW has been a contributing member to DDO for years now.

Except that this dude is known for raging over controversial matters he doesn't want discussed, and yet he doesn't "shy away" from controversy. I'm not sure if Airmax is trolling him at this point. And a contributor? Most of his forum posts are rage-wars against others.

Whatever he's speaking about, you can trust that he will offer his blunt opinion. This :might be problematic for someone less insightful or intelligent than YYW, but he :does it :with panache, and it is because of this bluntness that he is able to regularly offer :substance and value to the discussion at hand.

Yeah, because blunt opinions are a good method of discourse that is limited to intellectuals. I'm not sure if this sarcasm or something.

YYW has done over 40 debates and won the vast majority of them.

40 DEBATES? OH GOD.

He is a regular presence in the forums, offering his insight in virtually every forum section.

Yeah like, "DON'T DISCUSS THIS, THIS IS DISGUSTING."

This alone would be enough to get anyone elected into the Hall of Fame. But YYW has :also meant a lot more than that for the site.

Yeah, yeah. 11,000 forums posts of irrelevance and "yo mama" rage-wars can get anyone to the Hall of Fame. But YYW is more than that.

He has challenged the status quo, and while that is not always popular, it is always necessary.

Tears are going down my cheeks. What an accomplishment. He challenged the status quo. Forget Karl Marx, we have YYW among us.

He was a crucial contributor to my presidential administration. YYW regularly advocates for reforms.

Ah, I see. He supported your presidency, Airmax. Hmm. How convenient.

He has spoken up for unpopular members. He's always stood up for the things that he believes in.

You mean like raging on ADOL who is simply a new member just expressing his opinions honestly?

YYW would never claim to want to be everyone's friend. He would never say that he :wanted to be liked by everyone. But he has always stood for his principles, and has :earned respect (occasionally grudgingly) from the community at large.

LOL.

DDO is a site for debate, discussion, and the constant challenging of one's beliefs. No :one does all of those things more than YYW, who has relentlessly challenged the site :membership to question and consider how it views itself and how it should move forward.

By taking us a few years backward to censorship committees and book-burners, I see your point, Airmax.

For all of these reasons, YYW has earned his place in the sites Hall of Fame as one of :those members who, whether we like it or not, constantly gets us to consider every :aspect of the site and ourselves.

What a disappointment.

These are what you call bogey prizes, Niquash. It is disturbing to read how meaningless some people's lives are, though.

That owns. I was looking up stuff by him only a few days ago but found nothing.

The vast majority of people on this site like me, and all the people who matter do as well. There are others who used to hate me, but have come to understand how I operate, and now we're friends. There are some who think I'm just mean, because I never say anything nice about them. I could pretend to be nice and I'm sure win more than a few people's good favor -but I'm just not interested in that. In life I have to navigate the fragile egos of men who are in positions of power over me, or who I need things from. Women are usually less irritating like that, but I digress. Kissing @ss is not something I'm going to occasion myself to do here.

There is a distinct minority, as well, who feel stupid whenever they talk to me so they internalize that as a problem with me an not with them. I would be lying if I said that I don't talk down to some people intentionally, as well. So, I am acutely aware of where I stand with almost all members of this site. Realize that you have a choice to interact with me or not. If you think it's a prudent use of your time to talk to me, then by all means -but realize that I make no promise to be nice to you, to respect your point of view or to give a fvck about what you have to say. Your feelings are yours, and not my problem. If that offends you, deal with it. I am very comfortable with how I am perceived on this site.

YYW, seriously now, do you not feel like an absolute tool addressing your every single post to me? I mean it doesn't make me interest in you, nor piss me off... it's just something sad I read in passing from time to time - like in bluesteel's "enough" thread, all that calling other people stupid... you're obsessed, and I don't care, lol. I laughed at Skepsikyma's response to you in that thread you made in Politics, too.

Actually dude I was talking about Haroush, and a few other members. If you want to know who I was specifically alluding to I'll be happy to talk about it via PM, but not here because I don't want this to become a flame war. I wasn't even thinking about you...
