DDO used to have a lot of problems. It's current problems are trivial. The biggest one is that people keep complaining about problems that don't exist.

Youre going to get two COMPLETELY different responses based on which one you are specifying here.

The most common complaint is that the quality of debates has gone down. In reality, it only appears this way because the site is 5 times as large as it was when I first got here. That means more debates in general. Both spam debates and good debates. Except that most people only have the patience to read spam debates and give a brief look at other people's debates at all. Which is one of the real issues. People should read more debates and vote on more debates. I, myself, am lacking in this. But I've given the debate section a good enough look to see that there are a lot of gems under the surface. More than there used to be, in fact.

Also, DDO doesn't really have any legit trolling going on. Spam trolling isn't real trolling, unless it gets ridiculous like it did with Brainmaster in the past. DDO has had some truly serious trolls in the past. People who have created legal issues. We don't have anything like that right now.

There also used to be more conflict among people. But DDO has since developed a very healthy culture of civility and friendliness, for the most part. I hope it continues to work on this.

DDO used to have a moderation problem when it was owned by it's previous owner. He was unjust and neglected the desires of users. Since Juggle bought the site, we have been constantly spoiled and upgraded at no cost.

I've been here longer than most. And I'm very satisfied with the progress that I've seen.

Well, you got spamming of unnecessary, "useless" (as been quoted many times before) polls. Then you got the copying of the same thread over and over again. These are but two that we face. Also, I was planning on using the face of FWP and turn these into memes but oh well.

Blame it on the gays, the liberals and the jews. They're the usual suspects...

(I say this as a gay liberal who has been called a zionist on more than one occasion, even though I'm not jewish)
