Madness? Who the hell even plays that?

Darkness.

Oh, and you do know only Blackout-Dark Embrace actually reduces damage, and not regulary Dark Embrace?

It's far inferior to darkness and deception. No doubt about it.

Which is why I only play it for regs. I am forced into darkness for ranked and after months of playing any darkness spec I am almost numb to playing it.

Darkness= Best control/defense with good damage.
Deception=Best burst
Madness=Best sustained damage

Each tree is viable and I do play all specs and hybrids and each build brings something to the table. I like madness so much because it is not the easiest spec to play and hands down one of the squishiest in the game.

Very few people play Madness well, but it really isn't that bad when played properly. However putting 31 points into any tree for PVP is just inferior to any hybrid build honestly, especially Deception.

Eh no. You need Voltaic Slash.

And madness is just plain bad. Who the hell wants sustained damage for pvp? You want to kill, not to make them laugh to death.

I have no issue killing people with madness. It takes a few extra global cooldowns and can still 1v1 a lot of classes (still defend with it).

Well in fairness I'd never guard a node in madness since deception sins can kill you before the third stun (electrocute) wears off. I've done it to a top pvp madness player in a rated and he now does darkness :P
But I love madness in regs because of the hope of someday topping 1mil damage.
