I check the opinions questions fairly frequently, and occasionally vote and leave a comment. There are usually only a handful of opinions questions generated on a day to day basis - like 5 to 20. Today , within the past few hours 51 new questions have been posted with no listed author. I don't answer questions if I can't check if the author is a frequent user or a possible bot. Did anyone else notice this?

I think they are bot-created, or made by one of the staffs here in DDO. It is not really dangerous, though. Moderation is high here.
If computers have no doors or fences, who needs Windows and Gates?

I have a 10-0-0 debate record with an ELO ranking of 2,814. From 610th during my first two-week stay, I am now 326th in the Debates Leaderboard: http://www.debate.org...

It's very dangerous to be used by marketers, in my opinion. I'm not into anonymity from other users the way 4 chan is - but I am into anonymity from marketers. These questions get a lot of hits, and they can be used for political purposes. Saul Alinksy tactics are being used to disrupt America's democratic process.

I made a question about the "bot" questions the other day.

I do know where you are coming from. I won't disagree with you. We have just different perspectives.
