Peoples of the off topic forum, I come to deliver you another one of my senisible messages. So here's my bet: If the world does not end tonight I will do an Obama respect thread. That's right an OBAMA respect thread. But, if the world does end, I will have been spared of the misery of having o do the respect thread.

So who accepts the bet?

Given that the best I can really say about Obama is that he was the best option between him and Romney, I don't know how much a respect I can really give him, Its cool we can have a black president tho

I don't accept because I have zero interest in seeing you give the President backhanded compliments.

lol I agree he makes a Winsome Witch vs thread and then screams "Winsome Witch cannot be beat she has toon force" If you know that then why make the thread?

Comic Vine has spoken: we don't want any more threads.

If you are so certain of the world's immanent demise, you should have no problem agreeing to this...

I will follow what the member of the staff said, if the world did not end today (which it has not, it past 6:12, the deadline) then I wouldn't make political threads for ONE month. And until the end of january, you will not see a political thread from me.

I do not know why people on comicvine hate political threads, is it because I have a higher hand in politics then in comic book battles(Which I fare well in unless someone is unreasonable) ?

They don't hate political threads. You just don't make very good ones.

And no, most people aren't fans of your battles.

Perhaps you should have made a poll...?

What JXM said. It also usually helps if the OP doesn't have a blatant bias towards one side or the other.

When someone goes by fact I don't think it's a bias. I can back up most of everything I say-does this mean I'm always right? Of course not.

I'l hold any political threads until Feb. or early March.

And no, most people aren't fans of your battles.

Because when I pounce on people for not giving my evidence/feats, they get angry. That's why they don't like my threads, you included, remember when you said this:

Wow, really? HoM Wanda?

I am starting to dislike you.

If your starting to dislike me, why post on my threads?

Not just people don't show evidence. I don't like em cuz it is either a Star Wars battle or you making a team of ridiculous toon force and whenever someone tries to name characters it's always the same with some giant feat with the toon force that can't be beat.

I don't give facts or evidence if it is, quite frankly, not worth my time.

I remember. I stand by that statement; that thread is also an example as to why I don't elaborate.

This seems a bit like a hate-fest. :/

I see nothing wrong with posting political threads -- including those created by a poster with vastly opposing views from the majority. I've seen worse out there and frankly, if threads posted were only ones in which most of the respondents were of the same mind as the OP then where's the opportunity to learning anything? Even if they start out as biased diatribes, it's really no different than what I find in the battle forum with fans of both characters coming out of the woodwork to present their cases.

Anyway -- an Obama Respect thread sounds nice. He's done a few things recently I would like to commend him for.
