Bsh says "Aboltionism makes little sense to me". His thread endorsing Harder turns into a flame war involving every major candidate.

The symbolism of the current presidents endorsement turning into a multi candidate brawl is simply too perfect and shows how it's a toxic institution. I am right, everyone who disagrees is wrong. Vote imabench

It is a pretty toxic thread.

I don't really think so. There was obviously a lot of misunderstanding, which was resolved (sort of) in hangout, like I said, I am more than happy to do a private hangout with you, to discuss the issue to a more extent.

Shut up, you demented witch.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

This is all so incredibly stupid.

I agree the endorsement thread was stupid and in terribly poor judgement, and that the events and circumstances which were the result of bsh1's thread reflect, generally, on why the presidency should go away. Essentially, he threw gasoline on burning embers and then everybody acts like they're surprised when the natural and probable result unfolded. No one should be surprised.

I also am probably going to abstain from voting. The presidency has no legitimacy, which is why most are calling for the office's abolition. Even to vote for a president on the basis of the idea of abolishing the office is too ironic for me to swallow (and i've got some experience in swallowing hehehe). Even if a president is elected, I am totally indifferent to the whole enterprise. No one who is elected will be my president, and I don't give a fvck about what happens.

Abolishing the presidency means that the people who currently bitch and moan about that, will have to find something else to bitch and moan about, which hopefully the site hasn't grown tired of.

It turned into a war between 1harder and Rosalie, pushed forward by Imabench.

This is the problem with Abolitionist arguments... They are built into the fallacy that because they are arguing about the Presidency, the Presidency is to blame. Had this been the Conventions, and we were discussing one of many reforms/laws, it would have still became an argument... Or if we were talking about Voting Reform, or discussing apples.

In fact, had there been a Convention, there would be several separate arguments over individual Reforms and Proposals, at once, each as dramatic as an individual election. The facts are that this argument was separate people, each arguing about a PM with an odd origin. None of it is unique to the Presidency. In fact, most drama in the Elections is caused by Abolitionists helping to spark it. Be it Mikal at first, Wylted's fans second, or Imabench this time.

I only threatened you to not reveal the contents of the PM we had... I didnt need to threaten you to drop out because you were running such a pathetic campaign in the first place it was only a matter of time before you finally abort it.

yet you didn't say anything about it.

And neither did DK or anyone else who knew ;)

I have no sympathy for people who make vague threats and make things a public affair because they dont want to go the non-dramatic way of going to Max with discipline issues. Go to him before acting like everybody allowed it to happen.

There were drama in elections long before abolitionists ever came into the picture in the first place. Anyone remember the jimtimmy fiasco's? Hell I remember tampering with elections by having a 'vote airmaxx' stunt, and I wasnt even an abolitionist at the time.

Pinning all drama on abolitionists is the same as Democrats or Republicans trying to blame all the problems of the country on the other party, It may be true to some degree, but its not nearly as extensive as they paint it

As an Imabench supporter, I believe that this makes no sense.

First off, almost anything related to forums can be a catalyst for drama. An example: YYW's thread regarding RO's. Why remove the presidency JUST because it causes drama. That is not a good enough reason.

Secondly, while drama can cause harm to members, it really isn't that bad in the grand scheme of things. Most drama related incidents here remain strong for a day or two and then it dies out. Drama also cannot be evaded completely. If someone could prove that the presidency has worth and that its benefits supercede that of its down sides (as you claim, drama), then you have to try better. The presidency being useless is a good argument, drama is not.

The symbolism of the current presidents endorsement turning into a multi candidate brawl is simply too perfect and shows how it's a toxic institution. I am right, everyone who disagrees is wrong. Vote imabench

It is a pretty toxic thread.

I don't really think so. There was obviously a lot of misunderstanding, which was resolved (sort of) in hangout, like I said, I am more than happy to do a private hangout with you, to discuss the issue to a more extent.

Shut up, you demented witch.

"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."
