I Googled about and browsed a few different options. The Clean Debate Zone is what made me decide to register here and leave behind a couple others I had tried. So many political forums consist of entire threads of single sentences, references to Hitler, and calling anyone and everyone stupid. It gets old quickly.
Some of that happens here. I like clean debate as well.
People are very ignorant that resort to name calling and such. My opinion. I am very open minded and like to consider all angles and arguments. I like to hear arguments, I don’t feel defensive about my opinions. I’m open to change them if someone is persuasive enough…. Or if what they say makes logical sense or feels right to me.
Sure, it can never be entirely avoided. Personally, I tend to prefer threads that feel more like a discussion than argumentation. That tends to be rare online when it comes to political topics. My hunch is that people think their presence on a forum is making some sort of tangible political impact and so they get defensive as if in a war. In my opinion, one's online presence has very little impact on anything unless you have a popular blog or column. The rest of us are just having conversations. I much prefer them to be civil and friendly ones.
