In the interest of sorting things out on some topics lately...

Is it possible to get into the Debate forum now?

I've read the rules but it seems that the forum is inactive.

I personally think it would be a breath of fresh air on ATS to be able to debate a specific topic one on one and winner take all.

Any guidance from the Mods on this topic?

Thank you in advance for your time in replying.

Stop thinking of ATS as some unbiased playground.

It’s not. Nor are their mods, staff, or any members.

So debating a topic would be bad for you?

I understand why it would be, given your particular ideology.

Facts bad!

However, I'd like to hear from someone besides yourself on the topic.

I don't mind a good debate.

ATS is the most unbiased place on the web, as far as I have seen.

They allow all political persuasions.

The "supposed" right-leaning Mods have put me on a leash so many times it's not funny...

They are fair.

To the point though, I was just wondering if the Debate forum works, or if it doesn't and it's dead then OK.

I would like to debate.

I would like to call someone out and debate a topic that isn't in the Mud Pit or other threads where you are getting drive-by posters attempting to derail your debate topic.

I'd just like to debate a point with another member and clear the air.

I've no problem with losing the debate... I could learn something about the topic.

Point in case.

Make up crap. Yeah, you’re no different. Why are you asking for such?


I asked a question to the ATS staff members and/or Mods.

So why are you replying?

The question wasn't for you.

Sure your’re puzzled. Questions staff whether something works. When you’re put to the test, you prove a debate on ATS doesn’t work.

Why are you baffled when your own behavior proves it does not?

I don't see any point to it. It will just be a pissing contest. People simply have different sets of assumptions about truth. Because people start conversations with completely different sets of prejudice and bigotry no one will ever be persuaded one way or the other. So there would be no win condition other than who yells the loudest during the match.

You couldn’t handle one conversation with me without claiming that a debate would be bad for me right out of the gate. I’n your own thread, ad hominem right out of the gate... yet you claim to be different. Yeah..


Then let's see if the debate forum works and we could have one.

Why do you keep replying if you are not a staff/Mod?

You don't have an answer for me but keep posting because...

?

And here is your first post on this thread...

Sounds unbiased to me...

The debate forum was not for just anyone. We debate things all the time here and also try to get to the bottom of many things people present in threads. Lots of debunkers here. Sure, there are some shills and trolls, but that happens all over the place.

So an actual debate about a topic is bad.

You know, using facts to debate a topic and having someone determine who is right or wrong based on the facts.

Thank you for your input....

But you are not a staff member or a Mod, so why did you post a reply?

Seems odd that people are posting in this thread saying that a debate would be a bad thing...

I’m intentionally trying to ruffle your feathers. Not because I’m conservative or anything else. But just to show that damn near anyone who calls for a realistic debate just can’t follow through.


Sounds like projection on your part.

However, for the 3rd or 4th time, I wasn't talking to you.

I was asking...

1/ If the debate forum was still available.

2/ If it was not, can we start it up again?

You have no answers to these questions.

So why do you keep posting?

I'm human and have no feathers for you to ruffle.

1: Because you can’t help the personal attacks. Thus proving me right.

2: You keep replying to me, in which deserves a response. I’m not a savage...
