Yes, I'm copying dtaylor971...

1) When people reply to my forum posts just to say "lol", "-_-", "O_o", "XD", or something along those lines

2) When noobs start debates and don't make it clear whether first round is for acceptance or for actual arguments (and then get mad when you pick the wrong one)

3) Noobs who but "I believe X" or "Do you believe X ?" as their resolution headings

4) Resolution snipers

5) When people talk about how much DDO is dying, even though at any given point in time, you can easily find 10 ongoing/recently finished high-quality debates just by browsing a few prominent member profiles

6) When members who haven't been online for months are still junking up the leaderboards

7) When I beat a pretty good debater and get about 20 elo points for it

8) When someone votes, leaves a 2 sentence RFD, and it doesn't get deleted because they technically followed voting guide lines

9) Looking over my lost debates and knowing that I should have won some of them

10) When I revise a post twice before posting and notice a spelling/grammar error after looking at the now-posted post.

more to come if I think of any...

When your opponent waits it out and has the website forfeit for him/her, instead of just posting an argument that states they concede.

6) When members who haven't been online for months are still junking up the leaderboards
I don't see the problem here.

7) When I beat a pretty good debater and get about 20 elo points for it
ELO is ELO... It's not a great judge of the greatness of a debater all the time.

8) When someone votes, leaves a 2 sentence RFD, and it doesn't get deleted because they technically followed voting guide lines
It's not the length that counts though... Someone could cum up what they want to say about a debate in a few words.

9) Looking over my lost debates and knowing that I should have won some of them
You're romanii... We ALL know you should win almost all. :P

10) When I revise a post twice before posting and notice a spelling/grammar error after looking at the now-posted post.
Yup. Sometimes I just leave it there for people to laugh, like above.

more to come if I think of any...

How about when someone *cough* Kc- *cough* knows they're gonna lose so they conveniently can't finish the debate, that you put so much time into, and ask people not to vote...

You should think of this place for what it is "An entertainment site" in the end, none of this matters. Trust me on this. But I understand pet peeve's also, They bug me too.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

Ok, I'm with you on this completely. I get tired of hearing about DDO's death, and how bad things are now, blah blah blah... it's pointless to even say it, and even if it is a problem, no one who makes those threads ever offers a solution. They just want to whine, and it gets old fast.

6) When members who haven't been online for months are still junking up the leaderboards

Or, how about when noobs, the ignorant and younger members only look at ELO for skill, and a growing percentage of members on the leaderboard only have high ELOs for junk/troll debates? That get's frustrating.

7) When I beat a pretty good debater and get about 20 elo points for it

Meh.

8) When someone votes, leaves a 2 sentence RFD, and it doesn't get deleted because they technically followed voting guide lines

Sometimes a two sentence RFD is sufficient. Just because the RFD is short doesn't mean that the judge didn't know what they were doing. Though, in many cases, there are bad RFD's both short and long. Even one of the best debaters on this site, who frequently leaves long RFDs, is consistently one of the worst judges I have ever seen -both on DDO and IRL. The point is that the picture is more complicated than what you think it is.

9) Looking over my lost debates and knowing that I should have won some of them

Yup.

I don't edit, really, anything I post on DDO. I just don't care enough...
