Why where they even instituted in the first place?

They are such a huge fucking joke.

Because Juggle cares about the quantity of the people on it instead of the quality of the arguments presented. Money talks.

Debate.org has never been a money making tool for Juggle; he has other multi-million dollar companies that do this for him.

I thought that until they put in ads when not logged in. Given all the anonymous people who post in the opinions section, they are at least making a sizable amount. Every dollar counts.

While it is a joke, as long as it doesn't take away from the forums or the debates why should we care? Just because we don't use it doesn't mean other people don't.

And as a person who runs a website, I can tell you that getting increased site traffic is always exciting.
The wise have eyes in their heads, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realizethat the same fate overtakes them both.
Then I said to myself,
"The fate of the fool will overtake me also.
What then do I gain by being wise?"
I said to myself, "This too is meaningless."
For the wise, like the fool, will not be long remembered;
the days have already come when both have been forgotten.
Like the fool, the wise too must die!
- Ecclesiastes 2:14-16

I tend to agree.

Does this mean your going to be doing lists:

"10 secret reasons why the government is really super evil"
"5 Democratic presidents who sucked at the job"
"20 Awesome Republicans with nice racks"

You can also posts pictures of lulz cats around your website and pics of girls w/ skimpy clothes. Or lulz cats and girls w/ skimpy clothes!

Okay point made.

Opinions has been around longer than Juggle has owned DDO as juggle.debate but it is true that it is a huge part of the traffic that they receive, and as such it is a large part of the revenue that keeps the rest of this going.

We are trying to integrate the quality with the quantity, to get the best of both. As such they will be linked together and I predict that we will see them getting more linked in the future. I don't really see why you would be against this. It is little more than removing barriers to allow a free exchange of ideas, a free market of thought, so to say. And the free market is supposed to be good for all, right?
