Some of you may have noticed that on my profile, I've written a piece about what I want to achieve on this site. I've been told a fair bit lately that I'm arrogant, cocky, delusional and all kinds of things for writing like that, and people are starting to ignore my comments or write dismissive comments in response. So, it's about time that I fulfilled what I wrote there.

What this means is that I'm going to cut-down on the noob-snipes and start debating harder people. I've just instigated a debate with bossy on his pet-subject of Objectivism, of which if I were to win, would be my 100th win and pretty much put me on the front-page of the leaderboard. This would mean that I would be the first heterosexual girl to make it to the front page (at least from my knowledge), something which is nice to achieve but not what I ultimately want.

From there, I plan on restoring my dignity against people like Wylted and Donald.Keller -- people who have beaten me quite badly in the past. Then I will continue my rise to the top by challenging people like Danielle (whom I don't like at all and would love to give her a thrashing similar to how 16k gave her one. Hopefully she will come back), Roy Latham and the edeb8 guy (Larz??).

Finally, I would make a claim for the very top by beating bluesteel not just once (because that could be labelled as a fluke), but twice, meaning that I would be 2-1 vs. him.

Anyway, this is going to take at least several months to achieve and I might even stumble at a couple of points, but this is going to happen. I feel that I am closer than everyone thinks I am. But who cares what those people think. They just need to watch.

What is even the point of posting this? So you can brag to the rest of us that you are better than we are? You may very well be able to accomplish your goal, and I wish you luck on it, but there is a reason why people would think you are arrogant for making claims like this.

Wife, you don't have to prove anything to anyone. People insult you because they're jealous and they can't comprehend what having a legitimate, worthwhile, and achievable goal is. They're scared you could say, scared that you'll prove them all wrong.

Having ambition is good, and there is nothing wrong with wanting to be the best. But if you achieve your goal, I would not be at all surprised if you decided to make another thread to basically say, "See, you doubters, I told you that I am the best ever! I'm so exceptional! Haha! Suck it!"

Literally almost everyone on this site has made a list of the people they consider to be the best debaters. If her goal is achievable, and if she does achieve it, it's no worse for her to rank herself as the best than it is for anyone else to rank, say, Bluesteel as the best currently.

- You sound really determined, I wish I had such resolution. I am too lazy when it comes to anything internet related.

- The main obstacle I see in your plan is the fact that you hold unpopular beliefs, which will probably make your positions, regardless if well defended, not compelling enough to the voters. For someone who shares your views (more or less), I'll be happy to vote (on merit), just to balance the biased scale. I enjoy reading your arguments anyways.

No, I really do. I want to show them all wrong.

Yes, but now I want to prove them wrong. Well done is better than well said.

This would mean that I would be the first heterosexual girl to make it to the front page (at least from my knowledge), something which is nice to achieve but not what I ultimately want.

From there, I plan on restoring my dignity against people like Wylted and Donald.Keller -- people who have beaten me quite badly in the past. Then I will continue my rise to the top by challenging people like Danielle (whom I don't like at all and would love to give her a thrashing similar to how 16k gave her one. Hopefully she will come back), Roy Latham and the edeb8 guy (Larz??).

Finally, I would make a claim for the very top by beating bluesteel not just once (because that could be labelled as a fluke), but twice, meaning that I would be 2-1 vs. him.

Anyway, this is going to take at least several months to achieve and I might even stumble at a couple of points, but this is going to happen. I feel that I am closer than everyone thinks I am. But who cares what those people think. They just need to watch.

Wife, you don't have to prove anything to anyone.

No, I really do. I want to show them all wrong.

People insult you because they're jealous and they can't comprehend what having a legitimate, worthwhile, and achievable goal is. They're scared you could say, scared that you'll prove them all wrong.

Yes, but now I want to prove them wrong. Well done is better than well said.

And I know you will succeed.

- You sound really determined, I wish I had such resolution. I am too lazy when it comes to anything internet related.

It's just about keeping your thoughts disciplined. I guess it's easy to think 'I'm on the internet. Nothing here really matters'. But maybe I'm putting words in your mouth...


- The main obstacle I see in your plan is the fact that you hold unpopular beliefs, which will probably make your positions, regardless if well defended, not compelling enough to the voters.

When things get complicated on this site, people usually abstain from voting until Whiteflame and bluesteel vote, and then they basically copy their votes. Whiteflame and bluesteel are about as fair as it gets, when it comes to voting, so even if people don't agree with me stance, they won't vote if they don't understand it, or they will leave an obvious votebomb that will get removed.

Also, you can put voting elo limits on the debate, which means that the only people to worry about are people that dislike me (YYW, Danielle etc.), but even then they usually abstain from voting, if they think I won.

tl;dr: the voting on this site is pretty good, so long as the voting elo is set to 2.5/3 k.

For someone who shares your views (more or less), I'll be happy to vote (on merit), just to balance the biased scale. I enjoy reading your arguments anyways.

Well hopefully I will be able to impress you =)

You go girl, I believe in you!

You believe she can beat me....? >:-{

Opps...no. She will never beat you ;)

He's beatable. He is human, after all.

Posting this thread was a waste of time.

These are the kinds of comments that drive me to beat people. Bluesteel got lucky that I didn't understand the implications of my resolution. The next time we meet, he won't be so lucky.

tl;dr: the voting on this site is pretty good, so long as the voting elo is set to 2.5/3 k.

- Or you can do judges voting.

Well hopefully I will be able to impress you =)

- Can't wait, maybe you can squeeze in a debate with me there in you quest, hopefully I won't be so lazy then.
