I will also say that the site was pretty decent a couple years ago, there was good discussion with about 40 members. Eventually those with minority opinions were sort of drummed out, and it became more and more homogeneous. The debates became pathetic, and most of the forum topics were on black pop culture. I think there are now about 6 active members. Just sad really. This guy 'darqlord' thinks he's the cat's a$$ and projects himself as the only real debater there. He'd get shred to pieces here.

This was the first debate site I ever joined so I guess I'm lucky. Cuz that site looks pretty sh!tty.
I'm not back. This idiot just upset me which made me stop lurking.

Looks pretty bad, but while browsing through the topics I found one that I can agree with. http://www.yickyak.com...

Yea, I was just looking at them. The heading is good, but then the arguments are just...bleh.

You should invite him here for a official butt-whooping. What type of arguments does he use?

I think it would be better if you leave him there, there are already a load of crappy debaters here.

Innomen. Does this site have a group that sticks together? Bashing new comers because they can? Is it hard to get a fair vote? Do they use a lot of semantics?

I agree, challenge him! It's not like he's going to stay here. Looks like he enjoys being lord of his own little domain.

He claims to be a master at formal debate. Get him on an issue of race and he gets nasty, like an ugly pitbull. Look at their voting, it's fairly simplistic. Since they only have about 6 members, i guess it's hard to get a fair vote. They don't care a whit about good conduct. I mentioned having it as a voting point and that idea was tossed. The only good thing about the site is the guys that own and operate it participate and are happy to hear input on how to make it better as far as the logistical end of things. I would love to see him get demolished by someone here; he's fairly progressive, and everyone on that site loves issues on race. I think i was the only white guy on the site when i left.

That would be good, go over there and straighten him out. Let me know if anyone does that, it looks like a lot of fun.

Do you need a cell number to vote?

Is the voting public?

Do the six members there generally stick together?

Does the mod stay very involved in the site/active members?

Nope

Anonymity is optional

Depends on the issue, so no.

Not at all. The members take turns being the moderator.

Dang that site sucks. Every time I log out I have to reset my password. The PM system sucks. Where are the forums? Is there a win ratio board? Bad form.

If you stay logged in to long it will kick you out, and then your reseted password won't work any longer and you have to restart the whole thing over again.
