I have no involvement, but the lies being spread about him are truly disgusting. He offered me a handjob once in exchange for a vote, and I conceded because his hands were so big. He also made me feel special when he called me buttercup as he caressed my hair

I'm so sick and tired of all this drama, that it has forced me to come to the conclusion that I will no longer be involved in a campaign that I was never involved with

now all of you fuk off and leave me alone

If we removed Imabench from the past month, the election would have about 10% of the drama and fighting it has now. Abolitionists often cause most of the drama, and then the Election gets blamed.

It's not the Presidency we need to save the site from. It's people causing drama just to push forward the goals of Abolition. Like someone purposefully OD'ing on a drug so they can blame the drug and have it banned.

You can't argue for a drug to be banned if you overdosed on it. That's crackhead logic 101

I mean the main drama in this election is from candidates. Ima has been extremely well behaved compared to the cluster fuk of drama from pro presidency people.

Scandals about endorsements
Scandals about programs
The future ex pres wanting to be vp to wylted
Harsh words and bad conduct
Adhoms gallore
Etc and so forth

Sure people are the cause of the drama, and the office can't be entirely blamed. The issue of abolishment arrises when the office is consistently a catalyst for the drama on the site, and the negative effects outweigh the positive. With the president having the same power as a normal member, the bad almost always outweighs the good

Exactly. The notion that "Abolitionists often cause most of the drama" is an extremely bare assertion and really does not do much to advance the discussion of the topic at hand. Especially when most of the flaming has *LITERALLY* come from the topic of DK's supposed "deal" with Rosalie, and the fact that, with all due respect to you guys, how circular the statements that you constantly, redundantly repeat over and over are, without much coherence to your PMs.

Bsh and Wylted started the campaign, but they didn't start any drama. Rosalie running didn't start the drama either. She only continued Wylted's campaign, with a rather passive announcement. The drama started when you and 1harder went after her. While her reactions didn't help, it was sparked by you both, not by her.

Oops actually I meant just Rosalie's... I originally remembered that Rosalie was saying the same thing as you but remembering back to the thread I realized I was wrong.

No, the drama started when people took the presidency seriously. Delayed effects may still be traced back to their causes, and, in this case, those causes are the ridiculous claims put forth by all non-abolitionists.

Not true. It actually started when Mikal tried running... Both times. And his newbie supporters would burn on a cross for him. Correction, they'd burn others on the cross for him. And then, after dropping the ball, he tried saving himself by founding the Abolitionist movement and saying the drama was to prove a point. Prior to that, elections weren't that bad. Drama? Yes. But not a sea of insults and filth. Since then, most drama has been rooted in the abolitionists involvement.

Big hands usually lead to bad handjobs, so I have to raise suspicion albeit your very believable confessions. I also don't like it when girls feel that they have to squeeze it to jerk it off, you fuckin don't need to. You don't. No. Stop. Ouch. Stop it.

On a more serious note, I wouldn't complain about the drama. I think we all do enjoy it on some level, I also like meeting new users and trying to figure out their voices from their walls of text.

Hi. I'm back from hiatus. Seems like its fairly impossible to have a forum without drama. Anyone care to update me on chronology of events in the past year? A short straight to the point update would be nice.

Thx

December. However it would be fitting with the exponential nature of the trend to announce before the current election takes place.
