Is it seriously worth all this?

I mean, I know we joke about drama being an important part of the site, but really?

All of this for a figurehead on an obscure debating website.

It's not anarchy. The president doesn't actually govern anything. It's a liason position. Anarchy would be giving either everyone or no one mod powers at all. Juggle governs the site through their moderators.

Juggle's pretty much IDGAF about DDO.

Dictatorship then. Heil Airmax!

Max is the dictator of the site. And that isn't a bad thing, but anyone who thinks that the presidency is anything except a figurehead that Max allows to exist is fooling themselves.

Juggle is like God. They are there and ultimately in charge but don't really do anything. Max is DDO's hereditary monarch after he was adopted by innomen who established the DDO dynasty to begin with. Site wide celebrations rang out once Max had chosen his heir and adopted Bladerunner into the royal family.

Is there a place on the Internet that does not have drama? I would think it would be difficult to find. I just think the presidency has antagonized some people to be more outspoken more than they usually are.
WILL NOT BE REMOVED UNTIL:
#1. I have met 10 people worth discussing with on DDO who are not interested in ideological or romantic visions of the world we all live in.
#2. 10 people admit they have no interest in any one else's opinion other than their own.
#3. 10 people admit they are products of their environment and their ideas derive from said environment rather than doing any serious critical thinking and search for answers themselves.

I agree, but dissolving the presidency would take no official action, rather just an attitude shift. Since the presidency holds caveat power, if it's just ignored, then it is effectively dissolved. Then the people with *actual* power (the mods) will just be in charge. Community events can still be organized and lead by community members, no need for meaningless titles that inflate only ego.

I've been searching for one. If you find it, let me know because I'll drop this one like a hot rock.

I consider this the PG side of the Internet, it can't get that much better.

That's a pretty sad statement right there.
