I'm not exactly sure how to make my argument, but if you look through current and past debates, a LOT are very unprofessional. There are many joke debates, debates where people have terrible grammar, and a HUGE amount of theism vs atheism debates (mostly christian vs atheism) . Not that religious arguments are necessarily bad, but few know how to pull one off professionally.

Thank You I accept.

Serious: (of a person) solemn or thoughtful in character or manner.

Professional: appropriate to a profession: professional objectivity.

So by the definition of serious you have to someone prove that most debates arent serious, I disagree because an unintelligent person may start a really stupid debate and it can still be 100% serious.

A debate on DDO cannot be professional, you have simply mis-used the word.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To the left you can see how many debates each category has, Religion taking 4775 as I'm writing this. most debates on here currently is held by Politics holding a whooping 8000 at the time this was written.

Unless you can disprove that the numbers are flawed your argument is completely invalid.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I look forward to your response and eagerly await your radical position.

All I really have left to say is that "professional" can also refer to "in a professional manner", but I still concede.

This doesn't really seem like a very good debate topic either.... really it's a matter of opinion. How about you combat it by instead creating debate topics that you deem "appropriate."

This is true. I wish they would clean it up, somehow.

I agree with you, and it's unfortunate. This website could actually be pretty powerful if they cleaned it up.
