Initially, I thought the "coming soon" label on the three of these was removed because these three sections of the website were extremely close to being put up, but lately, I have been getting the feeling that there shall be no groups/polls/blogs . . . which is a shame, as I was looking forward to hosting my own forum via groups as well as getting an insight via the polls (as I believe usage of the polls would tremendously add to the evidence bank for debates that cocnern debate.org). Oh well.

I believe Nate was the one pushing for change, more innovation, and we know what happened to him. Anyway, that's just my speculation.

Did I just say 'coming soon?'

At any rate, I suppose that would explain the the removal of those suggested updates. Possibly, that may even make the ebay ad on this website as a bit more sensical (assuming that it's not merely a business tactic). Why put time and effort into a website which won't even be yours soon enough?

Actually, I think that's why they put effort into it. I think the intent from the start has been to sell it. The owners of debate.org [WebCorp], as far as I know, specialize in making fully-featured sites and then selling them.

I meant "place more effort into it." Placing more effort into it would be creating the aforementioned features as well as fixing the troll infestation here.

Other than that though, I agree.

Their thoughts get stifled by the man.
Me -Phil left the site in my charge. I have a recorded phone conversation to prove it.
kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos
