Cowardly decision to request a ban. He clearly wasn't up to the job, and wanted the easy way out

The only way something can have no consequences is if it has no effect. The only way something can have no effect is if it doesn't exist. It's completely paradoxical, therefore, to claim that something can exist and simultaneously have no effect.
People are not "free" to express an opinion. Instead, if they choose to express anything, they choose to pay the price. The price is the effect on others and the effect on the person. There is no free lunch in this world.
On winning DC and its overall importance in the discussion for all-time greats

The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
Is it like when you're an addict and you need someone to help you not to do something? (Wants to leave MTF but can't bring himself to do it?)
While I find the concept of the thread funny, where funny stuff can be posted, can't say I have much respect for someone who looks for posts they can report, in order to get someone banned.
