Yay! I've officially been inducted into the DDO Elite.

*SPEECH SPEECH SPEECH*

Alright, alright. Please, c'mon down. Put your panties back on missy! There are children here! Please keep it appropriate I'll give you a speech!

Ehem.

One year I I became a member of a website known as Debate.org. Little did I know that not only would this debate host some of the most intelligent people I will ever meet, but that site also hosts some of the dumbest, most frustrating people I will ever meet. Ah, I remember my very first debate. It was a debate on gay marriage, and it was horrid. Perhaps it wasn't as bad as many gay marriage debates out there, but It was very bad by standards I hold now, which are a result of an intellectual growth I have gained from this site. That was the very first debate I lost. That debate also gave me the determination to grow in my intelligence. At the time I focused on one topic, and that was the topic of gay marriage. 16KAdams eventually became my mentor, giving me a critique on every gay marriage debate I did. I eventually got it right, but only after a lot of trial and error. I guess at the time I hadn't realized that debating is really all about trial and error. You win some and you lose some, but the true value of debating is when you can take your mistakes and polish them into successes. Eventually I learned there was another side of DDO. This side was the fun side. This was where people of all opinions, religions, social groups, and political ideologies (Even the really crazy ones! (Yeah I'm talking to you you silly communists (Yes I did just put a parenthesis into a parenthesis. Problem?))) could come together and have intelligent discussions and have great fun with each other. These times of course came from the forum section. There I met all sorts of members who have become great friends to me today. This coming together of people of all sorts of ideologies taught me that humans, whether I agree or disagree with them, really aren't so bad. It taught me that I shouldn't treat people unjustly because I don't agree with them. It made me more open-minded to people and that has been something truly valuable. I remember in my first couple months of activity I had a small crush on Or_Ele and Thett3 because I thought they were both intelligent females haha. Imabench introduced me to troll debates which have allowed me to take some pressure off of competitive debating and have a good time. MassiveDump and ClassicRobert came along and are now two of my greatest friends on this site. Leojm was one of the first people to really reach out to me socially and we had fun talking. Baylieboo is an old member whom I miss a lot that I used to Pm all the time. Indeed members will come and go, but through my year here on DDO (Omg poem), I wish to stay because i have decided that I want some mo', and if I left I would be a hoe. Yo. Thank you everyone, it has been a wonderful time, and I hope I am to stay here quite a bit longer.

Now.

DANCE PARTY.

Good for you. Go get me some coffee.
Debate me: Economic decision theory should be adjusted to include higher-order preferences for non-normative purposes http://www.debate.org...

Do you really believe that? Or not? If you believe it, you should man up and defend it in a debate. -RoyLatham
