A Debate Room?

Postby toolip2 » Mon Jan 26, 2009 6:23 pm

I note we have a Politics and News room on here and wondered if anyone likes a good debate other than politics. I do and manage not to upset anyone with my opinions and beliefs. they do work on other forums but at times they get over heated and have to have topics locked! :roll: :groaner: :roll: :tantrum2:

Does anyone fancy a debate room? Thing s like "Do you believe in an afterlife, that sort of thing. or Evolution or a Creator. Not to worry if not as I do already belong to great debating forum and it has only about six members.

Just a thought. :rolleye11: :hide:

Personally I find debate rooms extremely divisive and on the sites I visit that have one I find it prudent to stay out of them.

This is one of the friendliest forums on the web if not the absolute friendliest, keeping it that way seems to be a good idea to me.

The expression “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” comes to mind. :please:

No probs! Yes, debate rooms can be tiring too and as the caption states. "A Cool and Shady Haven" It is a pleasant site so let it be. :peace:

The Politics and News forum was intended for discussions/debates which might possibly get heated.....it was maybe a mistake to call it such a specific name, but it was thought that the politics part at the least would let folk know not to go in if they didn't like arguments.

It should have been Politics, Religion and Football!

I use Age-Net forum which is really nothing but debates and discussions on controversial subjects. I find it is interesting, sometimes there is an argument or two but you have to remember it is only a forum and it really doesn't matter if someone kicks off you just learn not to read their posts. There is nothing wrong with a good debate. That's why I go on other forums for some light entertainment with nice people like the Rowan Tree. I am a member of a couple of health forums and photographic forums. I am a forumolic I think.

If I am wrong and there is nothing, then it will not matter....if there is 'something' then I am not afraid.

We could easily have a debate room - if enough folk want it - I like a good going debate myself.

I feel that VM has a valid point and of course I respect this. I do belong to one debate forum but we seem to have run out of things to discuss and a couple of membersw left leaving only a couple of us to chew fat. :roll: The other one I belong to got overheated :tantrum2: on the rooms for debate but it has calmed down now but I never go there now. :sad:

So maybe we should leave this as it is for the sake of peace and quiet as not everone likes to put their :hide: As politics and news are on here theres enough going on that enough to pee one off to keep going in there! :tantrum2: :roll: :oops:

Why not change The Politics and News forum to - The Debating Room - ?

This is a very friendly place, as everyone said and it is quite possible to have a good and serious discussion, without giving offence :sunglasses:
