There's a member who frequents a certain controversial forum who I believe adds nothing valuable or substantive, just personal attacks veiled as attacks against everyone who holds an opposing position. I've attempted to engage this person in depth once or twice on the topic they were pushing, but when I asked for specifics, they quit posting. Everyone knows who this member is if I mentioned them, so I won't. But I was wondering, could I start a debate or thread, X member should continue to be a member of DDO, and take the CON position? This person is no stranger to making personal attacks, so would this be out of line to start such a debate?
One perk to being a dad is you get to watch cartoons again without explaining yourself.

The site would just be better off without them. It's so bad, I think it could be objectively shown, and agreed upon by many who hold his positions.

No. The trial system is no longer allowed.

When was this? I remember izbo10's trial. How many were there after that before they stopped?

I would not be putting this member on trial, as I have no more say here than any other member. I would just be arguing this member contributes only in a negative way to DDO. I haven't received any PMs from this member, and I wouldn't air any.
