preach on pieman, preach on.

Oh Mr. "burningpuppies101" here are the definitions for a "debate". So i believe our "discussion" you can say. Falls under the debate category. Nice picture
1.a discussion, as of a public question in an assembly, involving opposing viewpoints: a debate in the Senate on farm price supports.
2.a formal contest in which the affirmative and negative sides of a proposition are advocated by opposing speakers.
3.deliberation; consideration.
