Go read the rules, then decide if you want to participate. We are looking for new "Fighters", people who wish to debate a specific topic, but are

Now, this thread is completely open to discuss all aspects of the debate forum, and to elicit debate challenges.
Who wants to debate who, and what is the topic? It can be anything, but to get things rolling, I'd suggest the popular topics on ATS.
