I have read hyperbole and hearsay, as to the supposed deleterious nature of 'The Forfeit-Glitch. As a result, due to my confusion, may I request simultaneous elaboration and clarification as to the matter? Of particular interest:

- Are all forfeited debates marred with this blight?

- Does the glitch recede?

I believe, based upon experience of grievances (not merely mine, mind you), that this impediment warrants focused discussion. Of course, I possess self-interest in desiring to further burgeon my blossomed debate-record, too. Regardless, please, if you are sure of your convictions, clarify this issue.

Thank you =)

I think it's strange that nothing has been done about it yet. I guess one thing is that it could prevent forfeits and curtail noob sniping, but that's not necessarily a good thing -.-
Commentator on a picture with David Cameron and a Cat: 'Amazing what you can achieve with photoshop these days. I'm sure that used to be a pig.'

Commentator on Hillary Clinton: 'If Clinton is now what passes for progressive, maybe this country deserves Trump.'

Commentator on British parliament: 'All that talent in one place, where is Ebola when you need it?'

John Kerry on words: 'These aren't just words, folks.'

- Does the glitch recede? No.

This was precisely my informational desires. Thank you very much, famousdebater.

It appears so

- Does the glitch recede?

Whilst the timing makes this less useful, I suppose corroboration is of value; so, thank you.

Yes, pretty much all dead debates have this issue.

- Does the glitch recede?
From what I've seen, no. Meow.

"Are you guys stupid? This glitch is the best thing that has happened to the site since Juggle's last update. Noobsnipes were stupid anyhow, and it's actually good for me, since the majority of my losses are due to forfeits. If this glitch had come around earlier, my win record would be way better, and the elo scoreboard might actually somewhat reflect reality... Keep up the complete and utter lack of hard work, Juggle!"

By the ways looking at your first 3 pages of debates; I only found 2 "non-noobs." Sure isn't noobsniping to me..

Nothing will be done about any problems on this site for the foreseeable future. Juggle just doesn't care and it's out of airmax's power.

Juggle will fix it eventually; it is only a matter of time.
