I'm leaving Debate.org temporarily as a form of protest against YYW's ban.

I find it to be unfair, disappointing, and it gives a bad name to a debating website.

Debates get heated occasionally, this is a reality that we must accept. On a site like this, we shouldn't be so weak that we ban everyone who calls someone an "idiot."

Ultimately, I encourage you to partake in this protest that will occur from now (June 27th) until next Sunday (July 3rd).

Thank you for participating. This will be my last post.

Why do you think that saying this is important. On top of that, why do you think that you leaving is going to somehow impact the site to the point where we re-evaluate our rules and regs? No offense, but no one really knows who you are, so any impact you are trying for is pratically useless. Just stop with this publicity stunt.

If that was the only issue, then vote moderation could be avoided more often, since a vote in which the voter does explain sufficiently how at least one point a debater made swung their vote, would be considered sufficient. -Airmax

I absolutely agree. In fact, I'm going to go ahead and temporarily leave the site too. Together, we'll show everybody who's boss! This may seem like a meaningless exercise in moral posturing, but in reality, by depriving the site of our irreplaceable presences, we'll bring DDO to its proverbial knees. Airmax will be forced to change his ways and lift the ban on YYW.

Join us in our fight for justice & liberty!

For the record, insulting others is not necessary or useful for debate. Truly good debate should set aside ad hominems in favor of substantive commentary.

I understand YYW is a popular guy. He is even well loved, but does anyone honestly think Airmax was out of line?

I bet he has never even communicated with YYW. Seems like the type of person YYW would have little patience for.

Yeah well. That is as much as I say. It is kinda cowardly to talk sh1t when he is gone.

I like some things about him and dislike some things, and that is as far as I go.

Obviously there are many things to say about Airmax's objectively wrong decision to ban me for one week. Many have weighed in on the subject.

What I have to say about that is highly controversial, and, frankly, I don't care to hear the clearly wrong perspectives of such disgraced members as have opined in my absence... we know who they are, and no one cares about their opinion at all. We know no one cares about their opinions because no one responded to them.

But, if you are interested in my thoughts on the matter.... PM me. I do not like keeping things to PM's, because I prefer to discuss people and things openly, but some people on the site are too emotionally unstable and childish to handle being mentioned.

These snowflakes lose their minds at even being mentioned, consider disagreement with them a personal attack, regard ongoing debate as oppression, and the like. But even they are not as regretful as the sycophants who do all they can to garner Max's good favor by acts of brown-nosing.

It is sad, though not surprising. If you want to know, contact me. If you think I have something to say about you in particular, feel free to PM me to find out...
