Pro

Looking through the arguments available, nearly everyone who uses it is full of baloney. Thus the debates generated will also be full of baloney and uninteresting and unhelpful!

Con

First off, I'd like to point out all the requirements debate.org has pointing out that the human populace is required by law to go onto this site and debate/read past debates. To my knowledge, I count none. Perhaps there are some that I am not seeing.

Secondly on your point that everyone who uses it is full of baloney. I've just taken a very thorough look at myself and can find no traces of processed meats on my persona. I did however, have roast beef today, so I do have a little of that inside me, however, no bologna. I cannot see you though, so I assume that once you entered this site that your fingers turned into salami's, in which case I'm very sorry. If any other users of this site have had the same symptoms, it is perhaps advisable that you leave immediately before it spreads.

On your point that these arguments are also full of bologna, I became very worried and checked my computer. Much to my relief I found it to not be full of bologna. If this where the case however, I do feel that the arguments would be uninteresting and unhelpful. I have stared at chunks of meat for along time, and came up with the same opinion. But to my knowledge, these debates seem to be comprised of computer data programmed to record the opinions and beliefs of it users, which I find very interesting, and so must the other users of this site, seeing as how they willingly joined it. Though I could be wrong. Like I said before, I can't find any laws requiring me to be on this site, but that could just be me.

I found this same problem with this website. The problem, I believe, is the way it was built. So... I built a new website that you guys may like: www.BanterMe.com. Give it it shot. If not, oh well, you can keep using Debate.org.

Cant vote cause the web site is crap, of course.... but Pro is definitely right. Almost everyone on this site is a stupid little US waste of matter.

Start your own debates then. Do your own research and present your own arguments. If there's something wrong, fix it or leave. If you have the power to identify a problem, you also have the potential to fix it (to an extent, of course).

I've only been here about a week but I have to agree, this site sucks somewhat. It seems there is a definite lack of intelligent people, humor, and cogent arguments.

It is a good idea, and hopefully things will improve, but I am not impressed with the fifteen debates concerning abortion and gay marriage that seem to be written entirely by illiterate people. Lame.

This site has potential.....Myspace and Facebook are baloney because people use them for the wrong purposes. There are a select few of us on here that are going to take this thing seriously, in order to further our ontological wisdom. So, MD, take a chill pill and wait a few months. If you want the good debates, find people who engage in intellectual conversations. You'll find an idiot if that's all you are looking for. Give it time.
