    IMHO, we need a Debate forum. Rules will still be enforced, no piracy discussion etc, but I think that unless the thread gets WAY to out of hand that they should be closed. I know that chances are there would be some flame threads every once and a while, but those can simply be closed. Rules would include nothing against a certain race, user, anything like that.


    tl;dr, forum where we can debate various things

    I think it has been proved that you can't debate things without them getting out of hand.

    Like how Halo is fun sure, no one debates that. But people put it on a Pedestal, saying its innovative, a game changer, when its not.

    Lol. Debate forum will definitely not be a good idea. It'll just be a whole bunch of people posting threads pretending they're debating but really just trying to troll other people. Already a lot of those posts here.

    You can't debate on the internet. It will just become a flame war.

    Nope. That's what police are for. That's what courts are for.

    Debate in real life works because people are less of assholes when people can see who they are.

    There is no way that halo odst thread would have gotten out of hand if it was people talking on the street.

    You can debate in real life, join the debate society. It's much more fun to debate with intellectuals that random people that happen to have an internet connection.

    I could post images of war? Best example of debate not working.

    But those examples are moot considering the amount of debates that don't end in people getting hurt. Exceptions are everywhere, focusing on them and ignoring the rest isn't the truth.
