I haven't really been a big part of the DDO drama, but from just watching it, I clearly see that it must end. Members are leaving this site because of the drama and I believe that it is not worth it. This is a debate site, yes, and still it is best to keep the peace. Plus, why argue with strangers across the country that you will probably never meet? I mean why do you care?

The drama is over. People need to stop making these threads. When threads like this are made, the drama commences up again. Once these incoherent threads are done being made, the drama will stop.

No it doesn't , it breeds and manifests in people and then bursts out again at a later point because no one wants to deal with it directly. This ends up resulting in passive aggressive argumentation until someone gets overwhelmed and makes a thread about it, then the entire scenario plays out again.

It requires people to grow up and stop attacking other people and for them to stop harboring hate

What is the big deal with people MILES AWAY offending you? Social media and sites like DDO are great as long as they are being used properly. And while harassment is wrong, it shouldn't bother anyone. After all, does it seriously matter what member X all the way from Italy or member Y from France and etc think about you? Their opinion is not life changing.

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

I have been reading these threads for the past few weeks. Frankly, I'm disappointed that they are even allowed to occur. This is a debate site, not an institution for sophomoric behavior. The power that be should remove such threads as soon as they arise. The pettiness and distasteful public behavior degrades the integrity of what I see as a site intended for articulate discussion. I'm not stating that levity or humorous trolling doesn't have a place, but the bickering is poisonous to this site"s overall purpose. Such things are best left to the Twitter, Face book and like sites. Those who have control over this site"s content need to take a more active role in depersonalizing this type of "over the top emotional content." Yes, there are many teens on the site that require a level of latitude while exercising their intellectual muscle; decorum and diplomacy are part of life lessons that need to be taught. A balance of civility while expressing thought or opinion needs to be struck. If I welcomed exposure to such nonsense that I"ve seen here, I'd invite a group of 14 year olds to my home, then I would take away their cell phones and Internet use for a month; let the whining begin.
