All:

Take a deep breath. Let me put this into perspective for you...

Yes yes yes.... all criticism is mockery. I'm sure babysitter whiteflame and babysitter Airmax will take note and hassle people about it; maybe even temp ban them because this place has become so sensitive. This is garbage. All of it is compete garbage.

And you know what? Nothing will get better on this level of consciousness. Not. One. Thing.

Ending the presidency only prevents garbage like this from repeating itself. That seems appealing, but of course, people are still going to fight about it... because they fight about everything, because they interpret everything that doesn't go their way as an affront to their dignity.

Get some perspective.

What this place needs is a president that will restore DDO to what it used to be. Get the sensitive members out of positions of power (even if it's meaningless power) and into circumstances where they're not going to cry wolf (#irony) every time anyone says anything they don't like.

You all get so flustered over the most trivial, insignificant things. This is a debate website. It used to be fun. It used to be a place where people came to hang out, share ideas, and exchange them freely without babysitter mods and overly sensitive, fragile, vindictive, passive aggressive whiners en masse.

But seriously... if this place causes you more stress than it helps you relieve, maybe you shouldn't be here. Maybe this place isn't for you. Maybe you're even ruining it for everyone else.

No one cares about your stupid feelings of victimhood. Get over it. No one cares that you didn't get your way. Get over it. No one cares that your feelings hurt when someone else pointed out that you did something stupid. Get over it.

Stop whining and do something useful. Stop complaining that you didn't get your way, and make a substantive thread about something that matters... or better yet, channel that energy into a debate. If you made a mistake, own up to it honestly and move on. It's not the end of the world.

Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe out.

This is not a big deal. Nothing here is a big deal. It's DDO. This place is supposed to be fun.

Are you a part of the problem, or a part of the solution?

Alright lemme keep score. Thats ONE clear reference to BSH

I'm sure babysitter whiteflame and babysitter Airmax will take note and hassle people about it; maybe even temp ban them because this place has become so sensitive. This is garbage. All of it is compete garbage.

Okay thats a reference to your recent temp ban you obviously disagree with

And you know what? Nothing will get better on this level of consciousness. Not. One. Thing.

Ending the presidency only prevents garbage like this from repeating itself. That seems appealing, but of course, people are still going to fight about it... because they fight about everything, because they interpret everything that doesn't go their way as an affront to their dignity.

Thats shot #2 against Bsh.....

I got nothing on that one

That seems like a shot at your temp ban AND bsh tbh

But seriously... if this place causes you more stress than it helps you relieve, maybe you shouldn't be here. Maybe this place isn't for you. Maybe you're even ruining it for everyone else.

That could be a shot at either Bsh or the mods, not sure which though.

No one cares about your stupid feelings of victimhood.

Okay nvm its definitely a shot at Bsh

Get over it. No one cares that you didn't get your way. Get over it. No one cares that your feelings hurt when someone else pointed out that you did something stupid. Get over it.

I think thats shot number 5 at Bsh

Stop whining and do something useful. Stop complaining that you didn't get your way, and make a substantive thread about something that matters... or better yet, channel that energy into a debate. If you made a mistake, own up to it honestly and move on. It's not the end of the world.

Well it was Bsh the last 5 times Im assuming this is another shot at Bsh since that seems to be the theme here

Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe out.

This is not a big deal. Nothing here is a big deal. It's DDO. This place is supposed to be fun.

Are you a part of the problem, or a part of the solution?
