    Little Miss Stalinist/Secret Al-Qaeda agents (i.e. Ellie) would be a ***** even if she was a conserative republican. What makes her the way she is happens to be the fact that the webmaster of this site let's her behave like this. (Of course, I would never make a liberal a staff member at any forum I'd be in charge of, regardless.)

    Except for the fact that almost every Pokemon message board, thread, or community on the internet recognizes their rules as what constitutes a 'standard' battle.

    But anyways as I understand it this argument started when two people made a halfwitted joke talking about internet forums and you accused them of something. You were literally taking offense to a joke on the internet about another internet community.

    Sit back and absorb that one for a second.

    That's not force. This just means that the Pokemon community likes their standards.

    When they break up, they'll be busy vying for your attention by buying things for you so you'll have that to look forward to.

    Harmless? lol he shouldn't be on this site. Simple as that.

    I'm kind of sad I missed a fight over the merits of a competitive Pokemon battling forum. In other news, read this because I literally had tears streaming down my face.[/url] I'm still trying to figure out the logistics of a guy batting his eyelashes against a womans underboob.

    And when every Pokemon community likes their standards, then you're forced to use them due everyone else basing their competitive section around them.

    But what do I care, this is just another case of GhostAnime "debating" something that didn't need debating in the first place.

    Its been discussed to death countless times, this being the most recent thread I could find. There's probably a better one, but I can't seem to locate it.

    That's still not force from Smogon. You're as free to create a tournament with your own rules and standards as the next guy.

    I don't think you guys know what forced means. This isn't me being a technical *******. You really aren't forced to do anything. Smash players aren't forced to do anything too.

    this is just another case of GhostAnime "debating" something that didn't need debating in the first place.
    This is just another case of jb adding in absolutely nothing to a discussion other than further proving that his stupidity has no bounds.

    It is rather amusing just how easily you will enter sanctimony mode yet personally insult people regularly.

    Anybody watch the tennis yesterday? Federer was simply sublime.

    What you fail to realize is that the majority of the competitive battling community is inarguably controlled by Smogon. No exceptions. And if you want to battle in a competitive tournament, 9 times out of 10 it will be Smogon rules. Forced is an accurate description of what is going on. Sure, you can ramble on and on about how nobody is required to follow the rules, but when you sit down and crunch the numbers, it's clearly a logical fallacy. Group pressure and self-entitled battlers shove the mentality down other people's throats in an ever-expanding web of control.
    So, realistically, the average competitive battler has one of two choices: Smogon rules, or get out.

    Darn that silly GhostAnime. >=( Constantly responding to people who reply to him. Why can't he just be a normal person and not reply to posts?

    And what fallacy is that? Mind listing it? Let's see if you're blowing smoke or not.

    I visit many online communities. There are plenty competitive games that have varying rules. There usually is one standard ruling set, but others have different standards among them.

    I think the only difference is that Smogon actually has a philosophy most people agree with. You can't fault people for agreeing with it and thinking it's correct.

    You spoke that your only issues were a few select bans and clauses. Those aren't as overriding as you think. In fact, on Pokemon Online, you are given the option to check them out.

    Group pressure and self-entitled battlers shove the mentality down other people's throats in an ever-expanding web of control.
    Lol group pressure and self-entitlement. Still hanging onto the assumption that it's some corrupt mindset rather than people preferring it for practicality? Have you asked all of these tournaments and websites yourself and confirmed that this was the case?

    So, realistically, the average competitive battler has one of two choices: Smogon rules, or get out.
    Or the third choice: for people to stop whining and create whatever they feel is needed. You people act like it's impossible, but if you weren't arm chair activists, maybe it'd get done.
