Wow! This years results are actually very interesting! First, I would like to thank the 36 users who participated in the Political Compass Test. By taking this test, you have helped to reveal data which shows where the DDO community is politically, in general, as a whole.

This half year's results show that the DDO community varies much more widely than in past half years. In the last half year an overwhelming amount of users were left-libertarians, but this year, although the majority still remains in the left-libertarian area, there is a much wider variety of users in other places on the graph. Although right-libertarians stayed about the same, we saw an increase in both left-authoritarians and right-authoritarians, and left-libertarians are more spread out.

Here is the graph for your viewing pleasure, in addition to past graphs.

Thanks for the effort. This is interesting.

Your results are very unique!! Do you happen to be a National Socialist? If not, how would you describe your political ideology?

Something can't be "very" unique, because uniqueness does't exist in degrees. Something either is unique, or it is not. Unique means "one of a kind" or "unlike any other."

That means you're AA...You're tied for 2nd most libertarian...That's interesting. I wouldn't have thought I would've scored more left than you, though I definitely thought I'd score more authoritarian than you.

Haha, I thought I was "blacklisted", but I guess you couldn't pass an opportunity to put me down.

But you're right. Unique was the wrong word to use there, given that I wanted to use degrees of variance.

While technically correct, in practicality "unique" just means very rare. At the least, it is fully understandable what she meant.

IDK...I think that's a bit too semantic. Besides, I can see that something can is "more" unlike any other. Everything is unique in some respect, I am unlike any other person, but then there are people who are even more unlike any other. IDK...I think you can express uniqueness in degrees.

Semantically, words have meanings... and the meaning of the word "unique" is "one of a kind."

It's not about putting you down; it's about maintaining proper word usage.

You have quite a capacity for instigating passive-aggressive attacks. There was no real need for you to correct me, since it was obvious what I meant. But whatever. It would be very petty for me to get angry over this. Enjoy being right (for once).

It would be irrational to get offended by the meaning of the word... words mean what they mean... and the fact that I pointed out what the word meant doesn't mean anything other than that a word means something.

So, while I'm happy to hear you're going to rationally respond... it wouldn't at the same time make any sense for you to respond in any other way.
