Having noted the recent antagonism and uncouth behaviour on this site it gives me great pleasure to announce the formation of "The Society of Honourable Gentlemen and Ladies".

All members of DDO may apply for membership, those of reasonable standing will be approved, those of highly 'shoddy' character will be listed as applicants until such time as they have redeemed themselves. They will not be informed of what steps they have to make, that shall be their test of character. Applicants and Members are expected to strive to conduct themselves as a proper Gentlemen or a proper Lady and if they do not may be warned, put on probation, or even outcast.

Proper conduct is defined as, not initiating insults, either ignoring or dismissing insults received, not consorting with trolls, making amends for past misdeeds, vote votebombing and not behaving like an uncouth buffoon.

I shall assume stewardship of the society until such a time as it is capable of full democratic function.

This will surely work.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Why sir, tis by the criteria of honour, naturally.

I was hoping for some specifics. Because the idea of joining any kind of honor society has always repulsed me, primarily since one needn't join an honor society to show that he's honorable, and since one does not somehow gain honor by joining such a society. That being said, I was wondering exactly what criteria you used to determine whether or not someone is "honorable".

The Society of Honourable Gentleman and Ladies Newsletter for 18-07-10

Current Membership
Cerebral Narcissist, Founder and Steward.
Insertnamehere
Lovelife

Current Issues
It is considered that the most pressing issue is recruitment.

A Survey
A survey of society members has revealed that the average member is 21 years old, two thirds female, white, agnostic Muslim and living somewhere north of the azores. It is hoped that in future the society will become more diverse and recruit members of specific gender who live on dry land.

To somewhat add to the diversity i will ask for acceptance to this society.

This SHGL sounds like a rich people club.

Besides the fact that it said absolutely nothing about being rich. I don't think any of the regular members are.

Okay, then, in DDO terms, the club sounds like it is for the more intellectual, and talented as far as logic and reasoning. That is not me. I call myself a member of the DDO middle class.

No, not quite. I wouldn't call myself an intellectual.
