The ellipsis should have 2 dots/periods/full-stops instead of 3.

BlindBeliever
Mysery

The ellipsis "..." is wasting a character and precious paper space as well as ink for no reason at all. Two dots/periods/full-stops mean nothing in particular so why are we wasting a symbol?It is okay, I understand, it will waste many resources to replace all the past instances of ellipses with two. So how about just from today onwards it is enforced?It literally wastes an extra bit of memory in a server every time it's typed. This is not actually a joke, imagine all...

When passing by someone in a hall or isle, should one do so turning one backside to them or crotch?

Youdontknowjeff

This is a question of etiquette. There are of course situations where one may not prefer to turn their backside. However I am keeping this to encounters between decent people with honest intentions. I say it is appropriate to turn ones backside to someone when passing by them in an isle or close hallway....

Motions challenged on Debate.org are mostly not good enough

Sadat_Hossain
NCAR

As we have seen in the recent topics of Debate.org, most of them have been simply indefensible. In most of the cases, it is seen that the one proposes the motion gets through the debate, which eventually tells us the story. From that certain point of view, my say is that the motions are not good enough though they may be good. By the passage of time, let us see how we fore........................

Death Penalty

boxbeat19
Aguilajoyce

The death penalty is an outdated, barbaric, and, frankly, hypocritical form of punishment carried out by many third-world countries across the globe. It is also, sadly, carried out by the United States in numbers that rival those of China and several Middle-Eastern countries. It is more costly than holding the person in prison for life, it is extremely hypocritical, it does absolutely no good for the rest of society, and the methods by which we do it are inhumane and unright....

Are dogs better than cats?

PrivatePeaceful
Okapi

I feel like dogs are better than cats. Firstly, whereas cats are lazy and rarely need to be played with, dogs understand humans better. They comfort you when you need to be comforted more than cats do. Also, dogs are less aloof than cats are which makes them the perfect companion. Although they do tend to be a little more misbehaved than cats do, they are more friendly, lovable and overall better. I in past have owned both cats and dogs, and with experience, I'd choose cats over dogs any day...

Debate.org should have an actual competition using provided topics

finn.b14
subhapriya

Debate.org should have an online debate competition involving topics provided by the site staff because it would be a good way to find the best debaters on the site and to encourage debates on topics other than god, American politics and pornography. I would be very willing to help implement and maintain a competition such as this. Does anyone disagree with this idea?...

I contest that the long series of Walmart closings are preparing for civil unrest and it's insult to my intelligence to conceive all closed locations are due to plumbing repairs....
