Since I have been on this site for about a year, I want to know a lot more about the sites past history. Could someone explain who were the famous users who are no longer active today. And how the site developed.

Also what was the first debate on this site? I would like a long review of this history of the site, if you actually write it out you will be my new favorite debater. lol

Don't let this site's demise affect you:

- Make an account on eDeb8
- Message Mikal to transfer your stats to eDeb8 (if you want them transferred)
- Contact any friends on here you'd like to stay in contact with
- Download any debates you'd like archived (go here: http://webpagetopdf.com...)
- Download as many mafia games as you can to preserve stats and history

I just went to the post voting period section and organized oldest to newest. But yeah, you're right. That's much older.

The better I understand the exodus, the better I'll be able to lure them back. Instead of retreat, we can have revolt.

In the words of our Tyrant: "it's a long story and here's the short of it:

so the site was largely anarchic back in the old days... to deal with multi accounter and bad voters the site had to manifest its own way of dealing with them... these were usually harmless and well intended - until they weren't

one guy who was particularly liked and popular in some circles became a vigilante against these members who were admittedly bad for the site - this guy was Askbob

Askbob would doxx these members and even once called one of them at work.home to tell them to stop vote bombing/multi accounting

this went too far, and by this point Juggle realized moderators needed to be present...

so Askbob got banned, and some members thought it was unfair... this group of people who thought askbob was unfairly banned were called the "ancaps" for being politically aligned as anarchist capitalists

to protest the ban of askbob, the ancaps all left the site - hence the ancap exodus... it just so happens to those in the pro-askbob camp happened to mostly have that (ancap) point of view... so over time it just became known as the "Ancap exodus"."
