What is the point of allowing these members who do not complete their profiles, or answer “The BIG Issues” section of their profile, or allow you to post comments to their profile on what they have posted?
There is no way to respond properly to the nonsense they sometimes present.
They should be banned from this site.
People can enjoy a positive debating site without the need to fill in profiles. In fact, an anonymous debating site or forum has usually been found to be a more honest one. There are so many dangers with putting too much of our own personal information on the Internet these days.
Should DDO members who do not complete profiles or accept comments be banned? .... NO......Please Explain Your Stance..... OKAY ,,,,, Here we go......... The people who should be banned are the people who use pejorative and downright nasty language like MORON DIMWIT and other words used by the guy who posted this poll. Why is he still on this site?
What about people who like their privacy but are serious users of this site and not just trolling? That wouldn't be fair to them to ban them over a few bad eggs. Also we must fight this trend of people automatically being suspicious of people who value their privacy. Privacy is supposed to be valued. People aren't supposed to want every aspect of their lives to be public. The trend for people to make so much information public is a disturbing trend in society and if I was an employer I would actually check the Facebook profile and give greater weight to choosing candidates who are smart enough not to put every little detail about themselves on there and would probably jump at the chance to hire someone who doesn't even have such a profile.
Posting information about controversial topics can be intimidating and users deserve a chance to explore the site without being subject to a barrage of negative comments or be obligated to complete an entire profile.
There are accounts who are simply looking to spam or stir the pot and post ridiculous opinions just to cause trouble. These are obvious and should just be flagged as fraud or spam. The few bad apples shouldn't spoil it for other users who want to explore the site and offer their opinions without being ridiculed or harassed. Give users the options to explore the site and proceed at their own level of comfort.
