I see this from a poll: http://www.debate.org...

This is my comment: "Sciguy missed him. RoyLatham is one of the greatest debaters in DDO. In fact, it is the second best debater based on ELO ranking (Leaderboard). Since Mikal is the best noobsniper in DDO (He's top 1, actually), that would make RoyLatham the best. However, in my opinion, whiteflame or bluesteel is the best. There is a new RoyLatham, it is the young famousdebater, my mentor. We do not know, but he might die 2 months ago (who knows?). famousdebater is still 13 years old with a brain of that of a 30-year old."

I also think that he retired. And I think, because of his old age, he can't do what he is doing before. He just likes to rest.

Who misses Roy Latham?

I have a 10-0-0 debate record with an ELO ranking of 2,814. From 610th during my first two-week stay, I am now 326th in the Debates Leaderboard: http://www.debate.org...

I don't think so. My only objective is to be the greatest DDO debater.

That's pretty ignorant. I'm not even sure you're capable of seeing the ageism in your post.

Oh what do I care, though.

I think he is alright and just has different interests that are occupying his time. I'm sure he'll continue to pop in occasionally. I see him post stuff on Facebook from time to time. I don't think he is dead.

Roy isn't on DDO much anymore. Simply because he's moved on and life has gotten more important for the guy. He still debates stuff on his facebook, but that's it. I remember when he returned for a small period of time and I wanted to debate him. He told me he didn't debate anymore. I wanted to debate him in order to redeem myself from my past debates against him.

He told me he preferred Facebook chatrooms over DDO. He comes on from time to time, though.

Thanks, though I don't think I'd class myself as that clever. And I doubt I'd ever be as good as Roy at debating.

C'mon mentor! There are 52 years left before you retire.. You're not yet even a highschool graduate yet I'm sure. Well, let's see.

Wait a minute. For saying that, it means that you've been following me, or worse (stalking)? Don't be a stalker, my friend. Be a follower (or disciple).

C'mon mentor! There are 52 years left before you retire.. You're not yet even a highschool graduate yet I'm sure. Well, let's see.

That does rest on the assumption that I'm gonna be debating and constantly improving on my debating skills throughout my entire life until I retire. If I give up debating when I go university or get a job then my debating skills won't improve and they may even get worse. Although if I do become a lawyer (which I'm planning to be), then I guess I will be debating on a regular basis.

That's some awesome planning you got there famous. Have the longest period ever achieved in DDO. 5 decades, look at that figure. I may not be doing it if I get to college. College life in the Philippines, so far, is very busy and time consuming.

I think you will never get worse. Even if your skills decline, one thing that multiplies (or saves them) is experience. EXPERIENCE is a very valuable skill.

Ha, yeah maybe, but I doubt I'll have the time to stay on here for 5 decades - I don't even know if the site will still be up and running in 5 decades.

I think you will never get worse. Even if your skills decline, one thing that multiplies (or saves them) is experience. EXPERIENCE is a very valuable skill.

I agree, though if I stop debating for 10 or 20 years I doubt I'll be as good as was originally.
