Just wanted to announce a milestone in DDO History for the first time someones reached 8,000 answers and possibly 500 polls since DDOs creation. I'm honestly amazed that I've gotten this far in just five months, but it also makes me realize that I have too much time on my hands. I put a lot of effort into certain polls with too many answers for no reason and I need to stop doing that since it's unappreciated. Anyhow, I amazingly still have a lot of polls on the back-burner and ones that I'm sure I'll think of as well (including the first poll that I wrote down that I never made for some reason). Have a nice day everyone and keep voting.

You have indeed created a lot of polls; but are you certain that you are the first to reach this milestone?
I must certainly give you credit for the high quality of some of your polls, especially your earlier ones (that I've seen).

It seems like it. STALIN only had 300 or so polls (he was the top leader-board person when I came here) that weren't submitted and he was here for quite some time, wasn't he? Regardless, I'm pretty sure the "answers" are the highest someone's reached.

Congratulations. Now, why don't you start debating? Anyone who can tally 8k answers definitely has some thoughts that differs against others.

Debating is like school work for me, looking up sources and writing an essay. I don't like to do that and I also don't like the shame of defeat.

Debating trains your mind and tests your intelligence, unlike polls.

Shame of defeat? What shame? If you lose, you can improve from your mistakes. Besides, no one will deride you for losing a debate, not even if its against dairygirl4u2c (all right, fine, maybe she's an exception, but still).

Besides, this site is called "Debate.org", not "Poll.org".

Trust me, it's really satisfying to put a misinformed troll in his/her place. Plus, when you debate someone you really like, it doesn't seem like an essay or schoolwork at all.

True, but I don't get the point or benefits of opinions or polls. Half the time they're overrun by stupidity, and due to its lack of voters, it's impossible to purify.

I've already done enough debating with my AP Gov class, the only reason I did that one debate was to make someone feel better about themselves.
