Obviously it is, to some, but most run away.

Websites are run like dictatorships which attract some minds of similar dispositions but repulse the majority.

It seems as though we are in agreement. This is truly a fun site, if you enjoy engaging in wars of words and the mind. It seems as though all opinions are welcome for conversations with whoever you choose, unless they use ELO ranking as criteria for acceptance. and there is nothing else like it that I have found. The biggest problem here is that there is an accepted format that seems to dictate a form of debate that the indoctrinated follow willingly and easily, is that the dictatorship of which you speak? If so then we are in agreement.

By they way, defining god or gods is not our mission or within the realm of our capabilities. Just believing in an entity or entities more powerful then earth bound humans is the idea.

"This is truly a fun site, if you enjoy engaging in wars of words and the mind."

This is more fun than a barrel full of monkeys.

"It seems as though all opinions are welcome for conversations with whoever you choose, unless they use ELO ranking as criteria for acceptance. and there is nothing else like it that I have found."

At one time there was a list that ranked all the net forums by traffic, topic and posts. I would regularly check to see if my favorite forums were edging up on the scale. Oddly enough the leading forums were car-talk , but there were a number of debate style forums.

"The biggest problem here is that there is an accepted format that seems to dictate a form of debate that the indoctrinated follow willingly and easily, is that the dictatorship of which you speak? If so then we are in agreement."

I'm sure that after a 100 debates I'll get the hang of it.

"By they way, defining god or gods is not our mission or within the realm of our capabilities. Just believing in an entity or entities more powerful then earth bound humans is the idea"

I expect I'll require more indoctrination in that department (tinfoil hat)

".. DDO resubmits your comment to me even after I erased them.."
Is a champion elected for the lists, or does he volunteer?

Begin Hissing, Hisser. When you bite, we will both die.

The same old hiss, I hear you hissing. For some reason DDO resubmits your comment to me even after I erased them, therefore my response.
