For the year and a half that I have been here I feel I have been a good member. I hardly if ever get into altercations with other members save one, I debate frequently, I often vote, and I have participated in the community in other ways. I am leaving debate.org due to this communities seeming support of one absurd and aggressive member. YYW is the most self rightous, pretentious prick I have ever encountered. Despite his erroneous behavior, this community for some unknown reason still welcomes if not looks up to this troll.

Just in case anyone thinks otherwise, this has nothing to do with whether we have a president or not, it is simply YYW is an a$$ and has negatively outweighed any pros I find on this website.

I have tremendous respect for many of you. If anyone wishes to stay in contact with me, I will stay on this website a few days and respond to messages. Otherwise, farewell DDO and Fuc you YYW.

Leaving the site because of one person just doesn't make sense.

Well, he's been here for 5 years, has the most posts ever and is in the hall of fame. Whether or not he is "good" is irrelevent to this, but it is a truism to say he has *impact*. And saying its confusing of why he would have impact doesn't make sense either

I am aware of a few, but the general silence on the matter seems complicit, let alone the people who do respect him.

I don't always agree with him, but I like that he speaks his mind freely and isn't pretentious. I respect him for the courage that it takes to be yourself, knowing that it isn't going to please everyone. Please don't leave because your personality clashes with YYW's. How can you get mad at members for respecting someone who has done good for the site, whether you like his methods or not. Leaving because of one member and his perceived influence on other members makes you seem childish.

Not pretentious... Don't make me laugh. I can't think of a single person more pretentious then YYW.

It may be childish, I don't care. I don't desire to interact with him or a community who tolerates him.

Think about it like this, is anyone really capable of leaving?
Hitler- If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.

Stalin- Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas.

Machiavelli- It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both.

Ivan the Terrible- "I will not see the destruction of the Christian converts who are loyal to me, and to my last breath I will fight for the Orthodox faith

How his he pretentious? Maybe aloof at times. YYW shows his abrasiveness and doesn't deny it. How do you know he isn't completely being himself? Have you ever seen him be deceptive?, which is how I think of the word pretentious.

It may be childish, I don't care. I don't desire to interact with him or a community who tolerates him.

So you're gonna leave if we don't all hate him?

I have tremendous respect for many of you. If anyone wishes to stay in contact with me, I will stay on this website a few days and respond to messages. Otherwise, farewell DDO and Fuc you YYW.

I don't always agree with him, but I like that he speaks his mind freely and isn't pretentious. I respect him for the courage that it takes to be yourself, knowing that it isn't going to please everyone. Please don't leave because your personality clashes with YYW's. How can you get mad at members for respecting someone who has done good for the site, whether you like his methods or not. Leaving because of one member and his perceived influence on other members makes you seem childish.

Not pretentious... Don't make me laugh. I can't think of a single person more pretentious then YYW.

How his he pretentious? Maybe aloof at times. YYW shows his abrasiveness and doesn't deny it. How do you know he isn't completely being himself? Have you ever seen him be deceptive?, which is how I think of the word pretentious.

It may be childish, I don't care. I don't desire to interact with him or a community who tolerates him.

So you're gonna leave if we don't all hate him?

Here is the definition of pretentious. It has nothing to do with deceptive.

lol - I guess I presumed the word meant pretender, as in deception. The definition you provided? If the shoe fits, wear it.

He has a grossly exaggerated sense of self importance.

I am leaving whether the community hates him or not. I would advise the community to ostracize him but it matters not to me as I will not be here either way.

I have no sympathy for you, nor should anyone else. If you weren't so prone to incite conflicts you would have a happier time here, and I predict in life as well.

You need to have some perspective in life which I highly doubt that you will find on this site, and take a hard look at yourself. If this bothers you so much, then your priorities are out of line.

But, we already knew that.

Kasmic, you know that since I have been on this site, I have always looked up to you. You were my mentor, and still are. You're always my favorite member to debate. Not only could I come to ask you for debate advice, but personal advice as well..you're a great friend, whom is willing to listen..

I agree with Hayd, don't let 1 member ruin your experience on this site, please..if you leave, I'm leaving. I know its hard to see what this site has become..but we need more devaters like you, to bring it back to life.

Aww, don't go because YYW is a bully. That's letting him win.

No, it's not allowing myself to lose.

So you think its better to have one more reasonable, good member be removed (you), and thus make figures like YYW become more prominent? You're letting the terrorists win, Kasmic.

If Kasmic leaves, I'm leaving. I have known him for eleven years, I still remember when we use to go to brothels back in the day and be risky. Those were the days. #StandByKasmic

I'm sure you're going to tell us you have a happy life, and that you're satisfied with everything, and all that jazz. For your sake, I hope that's the truth. But I don't think it is... though that doesn't matter.

This is the deal:

You come on this site and you want to be where I am, and you're not going to be able to do that. So, don't fight with me. But, you can't help yourself. You even go to the point of making entire decisions about what's in the best interest of the site just to spite me--and you admitted it!

That's pathetic. You need to sort yourself out. Whether that's on the site or not, is of no consequences to me. The implication, though is clear. You've got issues to work through, and I am not going to be the sounding board for your childish envy.

The greatest irony in all of this is that Kasmic makes too attack threads against me in the past two hours, and goes on an anti-YYW crusade in the days before, totally without provocation, and somehow he is the victim.

Absolutely pathetic.

I had no idea, and I don't follow his life. Though his multi accounting certainly doesn't surprise me.

Literally the only time I interact with him is when he has these childish "anti-YYW fits" where he throws an elementary school temper tantrum, and then tries to pit himself as the victim.

He's like a kid who pisses his pants and then blames the person next to him he was making a fuss with.
