I think it would be quite nice to talk to all of you people real time. :)

I also think there should be no moderation of this chat beyond the ability to ignore fellow users. I'm tired of debate rooms being hopelessly bland or utterly silent due to over moderation.

A free speech zone attached to a site dedicated to controversy is a natural extension.

The moderation is quite annoying, ...Phil! (he runs the site, supposedly. We can handle the dirty words, seriously.

Live chast would be a bad idea b/c ppl would create voter aliances and ask their friends that they acquire to vote 4 them all the time. the judges are biased anyway now. the judging would be even more unfair later if ppl could talk to each other without having to stay on topic for a debate.

"Live chat would be a bad idea b/c ppl would create voter alliances and ask their friends that they acquire to vote 4 them all the time."

Uhhh... Hmmm... Well.... Yea actually. Crap.

So, I hadn't thought of that.

I concede the point.

I guess on a side note I'd suggest a button to surrender when your opponent convinces you.

Don't vote for me people. The last thing I want to see is cliques and clans. God I can see it now, "vote netting". A tiny version of the party system.

i said the same thing to phil about how you can request ppl to vote for you but apparently he does not care as much about his site as we do.

Eh whatever, so long as the place exists, it proves that there is demand. it will spawn tons of knockoffs.
