It's just weird. I like debating and I thought that we only did debates. I guess this could be a place to set up debates though.

Mostly, yes. But if you want a general discussion over a short point, debates are an awkward way of doing it. Or if you want to discuss with more than one POV. Or if you want to discuss something that doesn't fit into a formal debating format. Sometimes, a forum setting is nicer.

We have forums and debates on a mafia site.

Debate Online | Social Networking Site for Debating.

It is what it is.

Besides, we have those who exist solely in the forums. Debate websites tend to attract a given caliber of conversationalist that may be attractive to some.
