What is the comments section in the debates for ?

I thought it was to voice your opinion, but I was told that it's cheating.

Is this true, and if so what is it for?

It's for discussing the debate, in general.

Usually you can talk about the debate topic in the comments section once the debate is over.

Voicing your opinion is fine, but you don't want to be debating in the comments section. The main reason is that the debates are meant to pit two individuals' skills against each other. If people debate in the comments section that has 2 negative effects.

1) It can give arguments to individuals that they did not actually form (and so they are not really the ones debating).

2) It can mislead voters to have them vote on some things that were not brought up in the debate.
