"Is it possible to romantically love more than one person?".

Its not all just one person, although, it seems that several have posted the same topic several times. Is there some pop-culture thing I missed?

I'm not sure, but the only thing that comes to mind is silly reality dating shows--i.e., the Bachelor--where the lead *claims* to love more than one person, when in reality, we all know well off than to accept this as anything other than acting. Whether it's a broader pop-culture trend I'm not sure, but reality TV is pervasive enough for it to permeate other aspects of life so as to find its way back to someone, like me, who doesn't at all care for the type of fabricated drama it offers.

Also, you may want to put this in the miscellaneous forum.

Sometimes, rarely, a classroom will be pointed to debate.org by a teacher where they all debate the same resolution as part of some classroom assignment, only to then never use DDO for anything again. It happens once in a while.

Spam duh.

Looking through those debates, the users participating in those debates are mostly between the ages 18-22, and they all seem to be debating each other on it. All of them number their premises, some with 6 and some with 10 and then the contender usually responds with their rebuttals numbered too. It must've been some sort of school project or something. Most of the users joined within a day of it.

And what kind of "school project" would that be? Definitely not the kind I had at school. It's *obviously* a bot.

If it were a bot then how come each debate doesn't have the same arguments?

It's *a lot* more likely. You say the ages are pretty much the same but one of the users is aged 28; above college. A few of them have joined at different times too.

Ok, but there are a lot of purple circles accepting those debates who are responding to the premises like normal people would.

Its just getting out of hand. If its a class, good for them, but why did they need the forum? This could have been done without spamming the site. Perhaps they could have asked an admin before pointing students at the site to make 40 debates!

It's just a campaign to desensitise people to the idea of polygamy. Next it will be pedophilia and beastality. It is the natural course of things when one so lowers the standards of human behavior.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%
