This triggers hatred and i dont see fun in Competition that announces who is the worst poster.

why not a Competition who contributes the most to the forum? who helps the most? who knows tennis the most? who is the Nicest or the smartest?

Why is it always negative?
Because even those would cause arguments my dear Amber

The thing is, there is and has always been an opt-out for those who think like that- nobody HAS to take part in it.

BTW There were more withdrawals from popcon than there were ACC IIRC.

The opt out was not something I was fond of but it was there for democratic reasons, making ACC a democratic contest.
No. I was never a friend of his, and I've had many fights with him which I believe those in moderation can attest to.

I've always been against the ACC and have stated it many times over many years. I foresaw it becoming ever more antagonistic and always saw it as organized bullying. I'll stand up for bullied people even when I don't like them. I never liked Clay Death or Start da Game. But I could see that although they did not want to be part of the ACC their non participation was an irritant.

Something being democratic does not make it right. A majority of people may want to discriminate against a minority or even kill a minority. You can take a vote on it and perhaps it will win by a landslide. That's why there are limits on what people are allowed to do even though a majority approves.

Because taking part in an online forum contest is similar to murder or racism. Right....

The fact that some people agree to be bullied or even desire the attention of being most hated makes the whole thing even more distasteful.

Yet if you pull out, the user is chastised, just look back and when BigJohn pulled out. Just like in your poll that you created, you made it public so you and whoever wanted to could chastise anyone who agreed with the decision.

Why are you sure of that?

What is this take it on the chin business anyway? It sounds like something from a Victorian boys school.

Similar insults get aimed at players and posters in GM pretty much every single day. Removing ACC won't change that.
