    Used to be really fun to debate on here. Is this a normal decline around election time? There are so many Jerry Springer style topics now that earnest debate is rare unless a thread is derailed.

    I agree. The intellectual level of some of the threads here at the moment is, well.... just laughable.

    I have posted in multiple threads asking those on the Right to explain their ideas and positions so we could discuss them, and seldom do they ever. You're guilty of that in fact.

    I think if you want to have a better level of debate, then start by personally offering a better level of debate.

    I have started multiple threads lately about serious topics with valid points contained within. They just drop like rocks on the list. I presume because they're not controversial enough. The extreme idiots on this site seem to be able to direct the debates with their nonsensical threads.

    Ps. You're being dishonest.

    "You suck at debate!"

    "No. YOU suck at debate."

    "No. I post meaningful threads and you derail them to avoid being exposed."

    "No! You!"

    Add a little highlighting, larger font size, color, some centering (if you don't have She-male on ignore, that is), a smiley or two and maybe an image or video and POW, there you have it.

    I have spoken.

    Well, written, actually. But you get the gist.
