I am leaving DDO. The site just isn't what it used to be for me... All it is at this point is a time waster. I don't have nearly enough time to actually participate in good discussions or debate anything. Too busy doing math and physics problems.

In any case, I don't suppose I shall return anytime soon, if ever.

That being said, thanks to everyone who made my stay enjoyable.

"primal man had the habit, when he came into contact with fire, of satisfying the infantile desire connected with it, by putting it out with a stream of his urine... Putting out the fire by micturating was therefore a kind of sexual act with a male, an enjoyment of sexual potency in a homosexual competition."

Farewell, bro. I hope you return soon because... let's face it, no one leaves DDO permanently.

It does suck that the good, intelligent, contributing members are taking off, while the worthless members roam free without a care in the world or self-awareness of their worthlessness.

Oh well.

Sorry to hear it. I'm a big fan. Farewell!
If that was the only issue, then vote moderation could be avoided more often, since a vote in which the voter does explain sufficiently how at least one point a debater made swung their vote, would be considered sufficient. -Airmax

Most users who have win records like that achieve their wins primarily through noobsnipes. It doesn't necessarily mean they are really good.

Other site I was on... people never started off debates with "1st round acceptance only/no arguments"

So it was always significantly more difficult to win a debate that you instigated. The challenger accepting the debate already knows what you're going to argue - they're not going to accept it if they think they'll lose.

Which resulted in a lot of cherry picking, similar to noob sniping. And same deal, those guys ended up with better records but that doesn't necessarily meant they were better.

Don't forget noob sniping, expert level. After grabbing the noob, beating them for over 1000 wins, you add them as friends and sent private messages asking them to vote from then on.

Maybe I don't have this youtube video posting down as well as I thought. Let's see if either of these work.

The first time I spoke to Zmike was two years ago. He was that intelligent. Unlike RainbowDash, I read his posts. The intelligence level of the forum has dropped with his leaving.

And the debates this guy have won is one, if not the best, in DDO.

Just went to his profile, again, and these are what I think his best and should be one of the best ever in DDO:

http://www.debate.org...
http://www.debate.org...
http://www.debate.org...
http://www.debate.org...
http://www.debate.org...
http://www.debate.org...
http://www.debate.org...
http://www.debate.org...
http://www.debate.org...
..and many more

These debates are also very famous during their Debating time. His debating style is very unique and all of you should think that this guy is really unbeatable during his time. You can also see that most of his debates, he stood as Con.

And his opponents are all at least the same level as him. It makes him a very hard man to debate with. He covered some of the most controversial issues, including pornography.

However, he lost one debate, rather a close one: http://www.debate.org...

The Instigator could have a potential the same as zmike's but unfortunately he didn't continue it. Pulchritudinous could have been one of the greatest in here.

He is not merely noobsniping. Try to debate with him and see if you wouldn't have a hard time.
