Discussion in 'Clean Debate Zone' started by TheGreatGatsby, Aug 14, 2012.
I wonder how many times, I've unwittingly broke the rules on "attacks." Is this place new?
It's new. You have not been in trouble here to my knowledge. Try to Remember, Civil Discourse, No Name Calling at other Posters., No Put Downs to other Posters.
Is there a no side railing rule? You know, the trolls who intentionally change the subject? For instance someone that comes in saying 'you just think that because you're a birther' or 'yea, Obama's a communist' - They do that to avoid actual dialogue on the subject.
You scared him away!
Where have you been the last two weeks?
I don't post here often because sometimes I'll forget where a thread was, and find myself breaking the rules inadvertantly.
A CDZ in USMB is like a tea sitting room in a roadhouse bar.
That said, I can see why some people would enjoy it. Sometimes these debates do get bogged down in perosnal attacks and off-tangent discussions. Usually when posters who have adversarial relationships decide to bring them here.
Yeah if you just hit "New Posts" or "Active Topics" at the top of the board looking for a topic, you better pay attention to if it's in the CDZ.
I thought when they started this that is was a great idea, but after seeing as how 99% of the people here would rather spend their time elsewhere where they can spew insults and name call, I'm not so sure.
Some of us work and don't have the time ( or desire ) to engage in debates or look at what forum we are responding in. I am always wondering if one has to debate there or can merely leave a short response, and move on.
Yes, there is and one of the only reasons why I come to this forum. Many subjects simply are untouchable through USMB because the number of trolls here. We have actually had a good thread on abortion that did not turn into 100 pages of insults
So far, this is actually working out
I like it here, wish it were more more active. I hardly ever resort to lowbrow personal attacks myself so I do not feel in any way constrained by the tighter rules in this forum, those who do never really contributed anything to any discussion in the first place.
