    i actually am amazed you are suggesting this....


    do i think its a good idea? In my opinion... no.


    however... that being said. If the only feedback allowed will be rep points for or against.... where and how will the 48 hour rule work into that? And should anyone who has their rep turned off be automatically disqualified.

    Very good point....we don't need it turning into another Flame Zone. We can set it up as an experimental forum area and depending how it goes we can keep it or shut it down.

    Your point is well taken though in regards to this and we'll need to flesh it out better.

    yes, someone else suggested debate teams. That could be arranged between the teams themselves.

    I'll update the OP tomorrow with an outline and we can go from there.

    The thread will definitely be left to only the debaters. Locking everyone else out we cannot do. We could but it would be too time consuming for admins to set these up.

    I personally don't see how a winner could be decided, so I hear you on that.

    I say some rule, requiring that your facts have to come from bipartisan sources!

    Either Flame zone Rules apply, or agreed upon Zone Rules?

    nice concept. but what's a bi-partisan source?

    we could probably all agree that certain sources AREN'T (e.g., drudge and fox or d.u. and electronicintifada or infowars or paul report)... but what's bi-partisan?

    Its a message board, you take on all comers. This idea is being supported by about 50% trolls and hacks. Take a hint.
