Askbob claims that if he has 10 people vote him off this site then he will leave. Let's put that up to the test.

http://www.debate.org...

Askbob is a dis-respectful member. He is constantly bagging on people and generally just a negative person. I personally don't care if he stays, but I want to see if he would really live up to his world and leave if 10 people voted him off.

Reasons to have him permantly off DDO.

1. He is dis-respectful, and does not provide any beneficial insight to DDO.
2. He doesn't even debate anymore, so really what's the point of him being here?
3. He put down other members.

http://www.debate.org...
http://www.debate.org...

And others i don't feel like seeking out.

So if you want to him off, then sign on these ten slots. Or if you don't care, don't bother posting.

I vote against this petition on the grounds that:

1. You're really making a bigger deal of this than is necessary.

2. We all know that you like to play the role of "mediator", but you aren't Henry Clay.

3. Askbob would probably just lurk on DDO with another account.

4. There are plenty of other douchebags on this website, I'm sure, none of which have been expressly targeted by a petition.

5. This isn't "Survivor: DDO".

I find this thread ridiculous and shameful. Kicking someone out because you don't like what they say is far worse than whatever he could have possibly said.

You really are losing this battle. Too many people like him so it was bound to backfire..
Good luck!

I'll cast my apathetic vote. He is often annoying, and can seriously come off as an @sshole sometimes. But for the most part you can tune him out. I mean, sometimes he'll call you out, and you're sorta forced to respond. But other than that, like I said, it's really easy to tune him out if you don't like him.

I've said previously that while I don't think too many people hate askbob, I also think the degree to which he is liked is way overestimated. FREEDO likes him, because FREEDO likes rebellion, regardless of what it is about (e.g. trying to take down a major Internet company). Logical-Master, who has since left the building, liked him because LM had a thing against facades. Other than that, I can't think of too many other people who like--as in 'eagerly anticipates posts from'--askbob. Most either like him a little or don't care. And at the same time, there are many who flat out don't like him, such as philisophical, Volkov, and Nags...

That said, if I have any opinion on askbob, it consists of two things. First, I respect him for his dedication for this site (josh era, ddofans). Though I think his dedication is often misguided (exposing personal details of some members, offensive demeanor), it's obvious he cares for the site. Second, he really should change his online persona if he expects to ever keep an account. I've recommended before to him that he try to make amends with Phil, and he acted surprised and acted ignorant as to why Phil disliked him. Even if askbob's behavior is objectively acceptable, you'd think he'd know Phil's subjective mind won't be changed on the matter, and if he ever wants to keep an account, he'll have to change his online persona.

Anyway, those are my thoughts on the matter. Good night.

Freedo... askbob himself said this. No one is kicking anyone out; askbob said he would do this voluntarily. Stop speaking out of your arse.

Volkov doesn't hate askbob, Volkov just has some issues with how he acts sometimes. Otherwise, Volkov things askbob contributes quite a lot to the site.

I'd rather you not tell others my feelings on subjects without consulting me first. Unless you want to be sued for libel, of course. (tehe)

Askbob is a dis-respectful member. He is constantly bagging on people

12 posts and no one got this.

I hereby resolve that I will never believe this thread was about what it's supposed to be about.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Okay, in that case, this proves my point further...most have a pretty neutral position on askbob.

Lol you've never called me names.

Oh my! I should go off myself because you've spent a longer time on the computer than I have. A longer time on a site where very few people actually like you on.

3. He calls other people names and hurts their feelings.

That makes you cool, huh?

I wouldn't sign up to that one (on principle), but I wouldn't care to kick'em off either.

I don't mind Askbob being here, he adds a certain amount of mirth to the conversation.

However, public enemy #1 is true2gaga.

I'd sign if it were a petition to Phil, but since it's a petition to askbob directly I can't in good conscience advise him to continue his presence on a property the owner has forbidden him from, even if laughably.

It really does not matter what you petition for. I maybe wrong, but phil does not strike me as a person that is going to change his mind b/c 10 people sign to have askbob back.

Honestly, askbob needs to post an apology for whatever he did and for creating multiple accounts, in the DDO forum.
Than suggest that he be allowed back on strict probationary terms and make sure it is a real apology!

With that, and people going on there advocating for him, maybe phil may change his mind but if he decides not to change his mind it is understandable.
