In the spirit of what Juggle said the Polls and Opinions sections should be - a place where newer members can jump in and facilitate debate - I have tried to challenge some outspoken and active members who frequent these sections to actual debates.

I've made them slightly casual with 5k character limits, only 3 rounds and 3 days to debate and yet none of them. Zero. Zip. Nada. Have accepted any of my challenges.

They are a waste of space if they don't want to debate at... DEBATE.ORG.

Debate me ye noobs and scum who frequent the polls and opinions sections. I demand it you cowards!

There are semi-intelligent people in the opinions section? It's not all just people posting porn?

Eh, a few. I'm coaxing them into debating but most seem disinterested.

It's still a hellhole though.

The only polls that conduct serious debate are the religious ones. Political ones always become a biased fling war between liberals and conservatives, with little actual intelligence.
