This room is for our members to debate serious issues. Pay close attention to the rules. 


Member debate Rules. Please read.

The person posting the Resolution initiates the debate. The initiator will post the stated resolution (please be concise) as the title in one of two forms either as a question or a statement... Example: 

 

"RESOLVED: Why did Donald Trump lose the 2020 election?", (Premise) or 


"RESOLVED: Trump lost the 2020 Election because of his hairdo." (Premise) 

 

The body of your submission for debate should include your proposition (your reasoning). You may or may not choose to provide evidence. 

 

1.)    The title of the debate MUST always start with "Resolved" and then the premise of the debate.*****
  
2.)    Anybody answering the resolution MUST post either, "IN SUPPORT OF": or "IN OPPOSITION TO:” in the upper left corner of your response.*****

 

3.)    When the OP responds to someone who is in opposition they must begin with "REBUTTAL:" in the top left corner. The OP may confer with those in support through private message, but NOT within the debate.*****

 

4.)    Members may not respond to other members (each other) but ONLY to the OP and OP's responses or rebuttals.  
    
5.)    DO NOT post links as evidence that requires the reader to purchase the service in order to read the content; they will be removed.

 

Members who respond to the OP "In support of" should do so with additional reasoning not just to parrot or agree with what the OP stated.

 

Members who are "In opposition to" the OP and should state their reasoning. You may or may not choose to provide evidence. 

 

In the absence of evidence submitted, if a statement stands on its own merit under a reasonable and prudent man standard it will be taken under advisement by the moderator. 

After 48 hours (or at the discretion of the moderators) of no responses the moderators will judge the debate based SOLELY ON THE STRENGTH OF THE ARGUMENT AND ANY EVIDENCE PROVIDED.

 

OPINIONS WILL CARRY NO WEIGHT WHATSOEVER

 

*****If any individual post violates rule 1-3, it may NOT be considered when a judgement is made as to the winner.

 

 

Moderators will resolve the debate and declare a winner. The possibility exists that a draw may be called. Then the thread will be locked. Check the posts above you to make sure you are within the 48 hours window to respond. Posts past the 48 hours window will be removed.  Locked unchallenged resolutions may be reopened upon request, to challenge.
  
Every debate win is worth a point. Members with five points may choose from a selection of prizes.

 

ALL SUBMISSIONS TO THIS DEBATE ROOM SHALL AT NO TIME BE VULGAR OR CONFRONTATIONAL. NO VIOLENT OR GRAPHIC IMAGES TO INCLUDE EROTICA IS ALLOWED. NO SWEARING. ALL INTERPRETATIONS AND JUDGEMENTS OF THE MODERATORS ARE FINAL. RULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
