When was the last big one?
I think it was the Juggle update but there was nothing we could do about that. So when was the last user vs user or user vs DDO controversy ? And can we have another? This site could use a little spice. Lol.
I will change my sig weekly. Week 4.

Fun fact of the week
Clumsy alien Jar Jar Binks was introduced in The Phantom Menace for comic relief, but he was initially a two-faced mercenary who was to betray Qui-Gon Jinn, a Jedi Master played by Liam Neeson.

Joke of the week:
Nerd 1: "Why can't you trust atoms?"
Nerd 2: : "Cause they make everything up!"

Maybe Born of God? I lost a lot of respect for DDO after that. I mean, imabench gets temp banned for sexually harrassing a member but BoG gets perm banned for posting irrelevant comments.

The only real sources of controversy that I've seen now are DJR and Bullproof, both of whom are about the least pleasant people to interact with because they are incredibly hostile to others, evidence of which is amply demonstrated throughout their posts.

As is always the case, there are very strong arguments to ban permanently toxic members like that, but in general terms it's unlikely, because of the way that moderation does things.

Or how Imabench gets Zarroette's scheduel and threatens to go after her. That man's done some crazy things, but I'm not getting into DDO politics when I hold grudges against multiple people.

Bully's been banned before, and from the look of his ability to learn, will be licking the banhammer again pretty soon. DJR is mostly inconsequential.

Interesting that the religion board is not more often the source of the biggest, most nasty controversies. One would expect that.

These past two weeks have been extremely controversial. That the controversy in one significant instance has resulted in what may be the first ever withdrawel from the site on a willful basis is relatively significant. I won't go into the details because the matter is over. The other really significant controversy has I think not been resolved and I am dissatisfied with the way it has progressed, what has been done about it, as well as what has not been done about it... But I will not comment further for concern of the results of throwing gasoline on burning embers.

I don't know when the *last* one was, but I remember one of them was when hect complained about DDO's censorship and started spamming and multi-accounting. I guess that's a pretty big 'user vs DDO controversy.'

It was the "Europe is Superior to the U.S." debate back in January. That thing got pretty out of hand. Since then nothing has gotten as crazy.

Zarroette or Mikal should return. They were very controversial users, and they generated a lot activity.

I doubt they would want to be active for the sole purpose of being controversial.

I don't think they do. I'll be flat out honest with you Taj...neither of them were very good. They did gain some attention, but that's because the first one was on the front page and the second was close.

But you're not bad at all. You've had some good ones.

Yup, no offense taken. You are right. I wasn't too happy with the one with Hayd especially. I did enjoy my DP debate, and a few others so, you are 100% right.
