We outta make Debate teams. Rules like no flaming, only serious responses, you can only respond when it is your turn, ect. SWP is on my team, we can be called the Master Debaters! This is just an idea, if anyone wants to take it and fly with it or if you have suggestions, or is you think it is stupid you can say that as well, I am man I can take!

Internet debating would be fun as long as it was kept under control. Everyone should be civilized to each other and should respect each other's opinions. (I guess no flaming convered that ) The question is, how are we going to divide the teams evenly? And who else will even want to do it?

It's a neat idea. The only problem I have with it is sometimes people start to go off topic and debate over grammar mistakes instead of the topic. Also, we need to have a scoring system so we would know how to win.

Never Ceases to Amaze me...

I was thinking, we make teams of 4 perhaps, then a panel of judges composed of 3 people. A tourney bracket would be set up, and the debate would go on for 2 days. The judges would judge on grammar, accuaracy, skill, and whether or not the debate was won. Flaming would result in an instant forfiet. A team must post after the apposing team. That is Team A person 1 post, noboby from team a may post till someone from b post. The topics could be AOK oriented or World oriented and the judges desides who is pro or con.

I think responses should not directly to the person except for some. It should be done like at a parliament or congress and you speak to Mr. Speaker.

I guess so. But what I meant was saying messages like "you are lying" that are personal attacks.

Claiming someone is lying would definately be something that is wrong, if they are lying the judges should just simply take note of this and deduct points appropiately, however someone who is debating could politely say something to the defect of: "I believe your source of information is slightly flawed, because last time I checked it said...". The big thing is that this does not become a fire house and nobody's feelings get hurt, cause that would break my heart *insert sarcastical chuckle*.

And Aro, I think the joke is pretty darn funny.

I would participate; but I would want people with similar political views to me in my team. However, please note that I will not participate on any debate which I am either apathetic or ambivalent to, which includes the war on Iraq. When I am ambivalent, then my posts stop making sense and I would be making a hypocrite out of myself, which has happened before when I posted in a debate thread with an issue that I was ambivalent to.

Are there are people who fit into the following criteria?


  • Is an environmentalists, or at least moderately supports the views of environmentalists
  • Is generally liberal in many regards
  • Is a heathen, so that I can have support in religious debates
  • Believes in the Big bang Theory and evolution

If so, then please tell me.
