    And what do you think i am doing by asking for a CLEAN zone?

    I would LOVE a clean zone. In my opinion is if negs are disallowed in he guidelines for this froum.. then pos reps should be disallowed as well. That is clean.

    You're welcome to call people's posts out, if you think they're lies.

    You're just not allowed to personally attack another poster.

    They are asked to source or elaborate.

    Saying a statement is false is not a direct attack.

    Providing evidence that proves someone's statement false is definitely not an attack.

    One can prove someone is lying by using these methods without actually calling the other person a liar.

    It does get pointed out in other forums but that doesn't stop people like truth matters, black label, Chris, ed the cynic, rdean and a few others from repeating the lie.

    Real debate has a point structure does it not?

    People will repeat lies anyway, whether you call them a liar or not.

    I don't think removing the actual accusation will make much of a difference in that regard.

    And besides, isn't your post a personal attack on the people you named?

    Just saying...
