Seriously, this baffles me. Only about 6 people hang out in economics, with not a single person residing in the health forum. It would also seem like the news and technology forums would get some posts, but its all up here, in the DDO commons.

This site has lost its intelligence. You guys spend your time hanging out rather then participating in what debate.org is about. The forums are a wasteland. The polls are taken by the trolls. The opinions are terrible as far as user friendly. What's happened to this place?

From my perspective, your a part of the problem. You hardly engage in any real intelligent discussion.

Anyways, this is a part of the problem. People could take this site seriously. It shouldn't be a troll haven. *Zaradi will reply with something snide*

Fine, fine, I'll state my actual point since you seem oblivious to what it is.

Even a broken clock is useful twice a day.

If your line of reasoning is valid here why can't I just point to the serious debates Imabench has done and said "why did people think he's a troll? He did serious debates!"

Can someone please tell me exactly why all the senior members seem to hate Jifpop?

He has done plenty of great serious debates as well as a few actually funny troll debates!
Admittedly, the amount of spamming that was done over the DDO Revolution was uncalled for, but he has dismantled it completely now, going back to doing real debating.
Why do all the senior members insist on continuing to hate him?

It's getting to the point that I'm almost ready to make a thread titled "In Defense of Jifpop09"...

Lol I'm actually down for this if he wants to challenge me to a debate. If he were to win I would openly endorse him as a serious political candidate in the upcoming election.

If he loses by more than 30 votes, he concedes his candidacy all together.

I don't think people "hate", him they just don't take him serious. He throws in an occasional decent debate, spams the forums section, and tried to start a revolution. At one point he stated we should overthrow the mods or add more mods because of lack of moderation. He also started a campaign of noobs to try and buy the election

He gets into serious debates and either

(1) complains the entire debate, about how someone chose to argue the topic

http://www.debate.org...

or

(2) Just sacks "fuk it", and drops the debate to go back to noob sniping because he realizes he will die in actual combat.

http://www.debate.org...

It has nothing to do with him being "hated", but has everything to do with how people perceive him. He is going to run for president after doing all the aforementioned things, and even after he did the entire revolution bull crap which clogged the threads for an entire month with spam

He is not a bad user and has decent content sometimes. It is just bothersome at points, because you can never take him seriously.

Mikal has part of it right. I just hate the guy because he reminds me of a 12-year old, immature kid just waving his hands around, begging for attention in the most annoying way possible and, after learning that how he's begging for attention is annoying, smiles and continues to do it even more intentionally. Not to mention that he's literally done nothing positive for the site (and before you mention the number of debates he's done I'll point you to the number of "one and done" members who've done just as many serious debates as he has. Have they contributed the same amount as well?)

I'm not going to try arguing that his revolution was a good for the site, but doesn't the fact that he's completely quit it count for anything?



He gets into serious debates and either

(1) complains the entire debate, about how someone chose to argue the topic


http://www.debate.org...

...I was under the impression that Kleptin had been the one complaining during that debate...


or


(2) Just sacks "fuk it", and drops the debate to go back to noob sniping because he realizes he will die in actual combat.

He's not a noob-sniper... he's completed debates with Kleptin, imabench, TylerGraham, and ConservativePolitico.


http://www.debate.org...

Responding to the very well-developed arguments of experienced debaters DOES take up more time than average debates, and Jifpop has a tendency to take many debates at a time, so I don't find it hard to believe that he actually did have to forfeit that particular one for lack of time.






It has nothing to do with him being "hated", but has everything to do with how people perceive him. He is going to run for president after doing all the aforementioned things, and even after he did the entire revolution bull crap which clogged the threads for an entire month with spam

Yeah, I don't think he'd do well running for president, but there's a difference between not thinking him to be a good presidential candidate and ridiculing him like a lot of the senior members do.



He is not a bad user and has decent content sometimes. It is just bothersome at points, because you can never take him seriously.

I'm not going to try arguing that his revolution was a good for the site, but doesn't the fact that he's completely quit it count for anything?

Again it has nothing to do with him being a bad person, it is his persona.

Can someone please tell me exactly why all the senior members seem to hate Jifpop?

He has done plenty of great serious debates as well as a few actually funny troll debates!
Admittedly, the amount of spamming that was done over the DDO Revolution was uncalled for, but he has dismantled it completely now, going back to doing real debating.
Why do all the senior members insist on continuing to hate him?

It's getting to the point that I'm almost ready to make a thread titled "In Defense of Jifpop09"...

Seconded. I don't understand why either.

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.

So basically, his Revolution and the associated spamming is what killed his rep?

True.

Not entirely clear to me from skimming over the debate.

http://www.debate.org...

Where did he say the exact words? He was actually very polite in dropping the challenge.

"I simply do not have the time to debate this properly, and ask my opponent to forgive me. He/she has brought up legitaimate points, and even though I feel I could successfully Rebutt some arguments, It would take me longer then the time I have left. Sorry for wasting your time. "

It was not word for word, but that was essentially the implication of it. He dropped the *one* good debate he picked up to finish *2* debates against people who were not even debating and ffing at the time. I remember reading over it and that is when I lost respect. He basically said to bluesteel in the comments . I am going to win this, and you have no chance. *see comments*. He then takes the debate and after reading the first round was like *fuk this*, and bails.
