  • He's a big part of debate.org history as he has 1200 votes casted on debates, 250 opinion arguments, 1400 poll votes, and over 400 debates won. In addition he has caused no actual harm to any DDO user who was respectful or honest.

  • He's a really cool guy; I asked him 100 or so questions and he answered them all without a slight hint of being bothered.

  • I stated, if I became prez. I'd change it to accept one person as an exception to the rules: imabench.

@blade As of now the policies are aimed at Bench, alot worse Flame Wars go on and are simply ignored while Bench is singled-out for "overusing" the word idiot.

They are not aimed at imabench. They are aimed at people like Stalin and all the other annoying trolls who get away with $hit to often.

Upon what grounds do you think he was "singled out"? He has asserted as such and, while it's not an entirely implausible claim, I do not believe it.

@jif You don't have to meet someone to approve of the words they speak or the humor they provide freely.
Jifpop09 says2014-04-08T01:26:44.2163891-05:00
And I know for a fact that you didn't know imabench on any level. I mean, you only have like 70 forum posts. You can't make any judgement s on what he was really like. There was a reason he was the most singled out user on the site, and its because he would always flame people.
Jifpop09 says2014-04-08T01:27:27.7406681-05:00
Also, 90% of his debates were troll ones. Not saying he was a bad member, but you know nothing about him.

@jif ---- Sire I have under 100 forum posts, but I enjoy reading his forums often. (and watching the weekly stupid)
Jifpop09 says2014-04-08T01:31:12.0389059-05:00
The problem isn't exactly that you like him, but the consistency of how much you've been praising him. You havn't seen the kind of abuse he put on some members. Some were even pushed to the edge. Talk to Josh_B or birdsandlanes if you want to know more.
Actionsspeak says2014-04-08T01:37:47.0958383-05:00
@jif --- So did the problem suddenly change from I had no clue who he was too, I like him too much? Well anyways, he's won more debates than any other user on the site even if the majority are troll debates. In addition as I said before he freely provides humor to users, and you know what I actually will ask josh and bird how they've been abused.
Jifpop09 says2014-04-08T01:38:59.2210154-05:00
Good, they'll give you all kinds of stories of times he attacked members. C*********- never forget
Haroush says2014-04-08T01:42:53.2634009-05:00
He attempted to push me to the edge, but failed to do so.
Jifpop09 says2014-04-08T01:44:44.9757170-05:00
He does that with everyone. He was a dck to members, and no one would come to peoples defense due to him. And he would purposely ask members to flame you. Not to mention his tendency to vote bomb members he doesn't like.
Haroush says2014-04-08T01:49:19.6622778-05:00
Well it doesn't matter anymore as he has learned his lesson and has decided to not stay. The worst part is I actually feel bad for him as the reason he did this to everyone was because of seeing his dad suffer and die from cancer.
Jifpop09 says2014-04-08T01:51:41.6231878-05:00
Yeah, I guess a lot of his flaming was a result of his personal life. Oh well, I hope he a good life FAR FAR away from this site.
Jifpop09 says2014-04-08T01:51:55.9128794-05:00
*has
Haroush says2014-04-08T01:53:06.4721317-05:00
Even so... If you have something horrible happen in your personal life, it shouldn't be taken out on others as it is not no one else's fault. Including the person who has to deal with those circumstances.
Haroush says2014-04-08T01:56:10.8984974-05:00
Yeah I mean... I think if you were able to get past that hard shell of Imabench, you'd see a much more beautiful person inside.Though he isn't willing to come out of his shell.
ESocialBookworm says2014-04-08T06:19:16.4947864-05:00
I have nothing really against the rules.
FearTheBeard1 says2014-04-08T07:16:21.9204607-05:00
Jif you are so uptight all the time? Why is that?
IamPlato says2014-04-08T07:45:26.1832418-05:00
Jif is not wound up all the time, you people are just have minimal capabilities and attention spans of flies. Why don't you work on your own short comings and stop trying to "fix' other people. Hey there is a good start.
