At last, all things are in place. This website is finally headed in its proper direction.

The mighty Kleptin has fled in terror before our might. The coward Askbob/scissorshands/brittwalller has fled as well, but not before being rightfully banned for his stupidity. The corrupt cleaners are no longer vocal in their efforts to control this website. And as of recent, the moderator is powerless to impede our mission.

Debate.org is headed towards a new age. An age of peace; an age where debates are not won by semantics; an age where new users are not constantly abused and picked on; an age where we can honestly debate the issues without having to worry about some backroom organized voting blocs by the immature liberals and the cleaners that pollute this website. All thanks must go to our leader, joshand, for standing up for what was right when no one else would.

But as a great man once said, the the night is always darkest before the dawn. At the moment, a storm is brewing. A storm great enough to sweep this website of its trash once and for all. A storm which we like to call "Motion V*" The cleaners, the immature liberals, the semantics users and anyone else who stands in our way shall be eliminated in one fail swoop.

If you think your win ratios are bad now, you ain't seen nothing yet.
As of now, the only way for you to avoid this unfortunate business is to recant your foul deeds. We've been keeping tabs on this website for a long time and we know who is sending private messages to other users, requesting that they vote down the debates of the conservative members. We know of the debaters who simply wish to spread discord and win debates with semantics. We would advise that you reply to this thread or start a new thread recanting your foul ways or else all the effort you put into rigging your win ratios will be in vain. At the moment, JustCallMeTarzan is a prime example of someone who behaves in this manner and his sins will not go unpunished if our leader is not feeling the least bit merciful. The rest of you know who you are. I'd suggest you comply immediately.

To all the others who have seen the injustice on this website and have contributed to our worthy cause, I would like to express many thanks. If you feel your win ratios are being manipulated by the cleanres, the liberals or the rest of the scum, give us a holler and we'll see what we can do.

Yours truly,

The Vote General.

So, Josh, you think because we have lost 1 or 2 guys, you can come here ansd take over? Unlikely.

You show that your prepared to vote bomb people who do not conform to your ideology, or have the honesty and courage to voice the outrage of your back handed shenanigans.

You can come with as many pseudonyms as you wish, destroy our win ratios as much as you want, and in general be a thorn in our side. But your just a thorn in the side of a lion. A puny, weak, cowardly thorn in the side of a great, strong lion.

People from all ideologies, Libertarians, Socialists, Progressives, Moderates and Conservatives, have expressed discontent with your doings. What you call a back handed voting bloc is a organisation which balances your grievous deeds, in an honest matter.

Your 'Justice' is just you trying to run a website. It's actually quite pitiful and laughable that you've stayed this long to aggravate a few people. The very people you target are the centre of this website. If we leave, Debate.org is worthless. It will have far less debates.

In fact, I wish to show you what we can do. I would like to call on all people who have been vote bombed, support the cleaners, and express discontent at Josh, to not log on, post or debate at random intervals we will decide. PM me for more information.
Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

I can't honestly imagine that people care much about their win-percentage anymore.

Screw the Cleaners
Screw the CWO

I am something better than that. I debate, because I enjoy it. Certainly winning makes me content, but it's not the reason I do it. I like sounding smarter than I am. I like making people re-think their positions, but above all... I like proving people wrong! In a true arena of debate, success isn't determined by wins and losses but rather by persuasive excellence. That's what I strive for. So go ahead Josh, have your fun. But there is NOTHING you can do to take away from what I enjoy.

You can call me a Purist!

I have come to be rather entertained by joshandr. Everytime he comes back around I feel better about myself because - no matter what - at least I am not joshandr.

Also, I don't care much about my win ratio. I really just enjoy debating with the people that come here regularly. Most of them are interesting and I have learned a great deal from this place - both in terms of how to properly format an argument (still learning), and how different ideologies view the world. Therefore, I would like to thank the regulars.

You beat me to it. These are the same reasons I keep someing back, and will continue to come back regardless of what joshandr does. I think that more regulars feel the same way.

LOL! What are you going to do? Vote me down on my three remaining debates which have not passed the voting period and are currently in my favor? Ooooooooooooh! That certainly makes a huge difference.

Son, its time we had a talk.....

About 4 odd month ago, some feller by the name a' Josh came onto to this here website. He was a conservative man, and joined a conservative gang called the Conservative youth...no wait World order, better none as C-W-O. Anyways, after a while he turned to vote bombing to bring down non-conservatives, mainly at Liberals, like myself, and libertarians like Ragnar. Soon, we kicked him off but he pops up occasionally to vote bomb us and pretend he's doing good.

That's the thing, Ineedanewnametoolong, he didn't ruin the community. He ruined the validity of the voting system, but not the entire site. Most of us still very much enjoy DDC even without a properly functioning voting system.

Yes, but it did cripple our growth. I DO in fact enjoy DDO. The point is, I don't like josh.

I agree, I could care less about win-ratio. I mainly like the forums but I do take the odd debate now and then.
There are three types of lies: lies, damn lies, and statistics"

"Therefore love moderately. Long love doth so.
Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow."

"There must be no majority decisions, but only responsible persons, and the word 'council' must be restored to its original meaning. Surely every man will have advisers by his side, but the decision will be made by one man."

Wow... Josh must be getting desperate.

Here's my 2 cents:
1. People no longer care about their win ratios.
2. There is nothing you can do to make us leave. The only thing you have on us is a win ratio, but we no longer care about it.
3. Short of buying a several thousand dollar site, there is no way to assume control.
4. If you did buy the site, everyone would just leave and join another one, maybe one made by Phil and Crystal.

oh i see...... why should anyone care about owning the site win ratio?? just to show that your better than everyone?? kinda weird and pointless that someone should be wasting their time dedicated to making it in the win box ha ha. kinda funny actually. people really have this much fun in there lives where they dedicate it to trying to win a debate site.
