He started out strong, with a very logical statement:
Now that hockey is back, I think the mods need help. I'm just thinking a way to give back to the community is to be a moderator and help clean up CDC from all the filth and trolling that's happening.
So what say you, do I have your support for a better and brighter CDC?
That's a very good point! His concern over the moderators was a great basis to run a campaign on. However, as a member with a reputation for trolling his argument is a little bit weak. Everyone changes though.
However, it didn't last. Shortly Mr. Reputable showed his paranoid colours in response to a post by Wizdom:
Don't stalk me, please.
Now, there's really no such thing as stalking on a web forum, as everyone is free to post everywhere. Mr. Reputable is paranoid. Maybe he's hiding something. This is where he started to fizzle out. There's no way he will secure the votes of General Hockey Discussion anymore.
Now he starts defending his post about the campaign, when no one was even talking about it:
It's in a proper section of the forum. Did you look at the type of threads in here? There's even a thread about ask someone anything.
These signs of paranoia were really hurting his status among the young voters. Wizdom already showed his displeasure with the campaign, and on CDC the youth vote is the most important single vote you can have.
He comes back with a solid post which could have re-vitalized his campaign, this could secure the old-persons vote. All 10 of them:
I think I'm OK with the rules. I have no warnings and only a few closed threads, mostly due to redundancy. I'm a good citizen.
A good citizen is exactly what we need in a moderator! All the ones here currently are good citizens. It's generally a desirable trait in people who have power.
The problem came when he started getting cocky:
I run for people like you. That's a compliment btw.
Backwards compliments, cocky attitude. He's started heading downhill again. The nail was in the coffin the moment he announce where he liked to be in charge:
I'm OK with the Canuck prospects forum if that's what you like.
Mr. Reputable ran a legendary campaign. I think we can safely say that he was the Mitt Romney of CDC 2013.
Mr. Reputable: Lost a campaign running unopposed. CDC legend.
This has been your CDC report, signing off.
