    Debate section.

    I say it should be more open and less restricted.
    Not everyone is up to date with politics and such.
    I don't see why we can't do random things like...

    Cats vs Dogs
    Rain vs Snow
    iPod vs MP3 player
    Movies vs Tv shows

    ^ you get what I mean.

    I totally agree Cara, I think the debate section is way too strict, and that is why I never post there.

    Thats the entire point. Debate Section is for touchy subjects. Not general topics that can easily be placed into General Discussion. The debate zone is for people that actually want to have an intellectual conversation with other intellectual users instead of reading spammy posts that the majority of this forum runs on. Too strict? It has to be. Sensitive topics are not to be joked around. What if we were having a discussion on abortion and a user said to you that you have to get an abortion next time you get pregnant, you get offended..what then? This is for logical debates, not every day general topics. This is 1 section that you have to be mature, have civil conversation, no joking around. If you can't handle it, then don't post in it. There are other sections that you can post in. So what if you're not up to date with politics/global issues. Educate yourself.

    I don't see why both types of debate topics can't be in there? I am okay with serious debate threads, but the ones up there are boring. It's also nice to have variety. To me, stuff like the topics I listed up there are debates, not something for general discussion. They should be in the DEBATE section. :/

    It's not a debate. It's a discussion. 2 different words. Non serious topics go in general discussion. Honestly Cara, there are many other forums on this forum that you can post in. It's just 1 that intellectual users can go to not have to look at spam.

    These general topics aren't met for debate. They can be done in 1 sentence. Not worth the time to debate.

    If you think the current postings are boring, do something about it. Make an adequate argument about a real topic.

    I'm really just going to avoid the debate section in general. It's boring and restricted. Not all debates are serious, but I guess our opinions differ there :/. Either way, I hope Joe does something about it.


    And oh my godddd. Steve... having a good idea? :o

    You can easily just post in General Discussion. That is what that section is for. You can't debate snow vs. rain with more than simple logic.

    Well I'm sorry we can't all please you and the other users that agree with you. For the sole purpose of on this forum, the debates are meant for serious political/world issues. Not just random/fun topics.

    It's my section that I specifically asked joe for. Seriously Cara, just use general discussion for your fun topics that you want.
