Is DDO a good place to debate skilled debaters?

Asked by: nate.DDOqa
  • Hell yeah it does

    Danielle, RoyLatham, Grape, Bluesteel, F-16, Darkkermit, Thett3, and Zaradi are some of the best people you could debate against on here. And sure, for every 1 smart person theres 2 idiots and 5 people who disappear within a few weeks, DDO is still a great place to debate against skilled debaters.

  • Yes, DDO is a good place to debate skilled debaters.

    A debate is simply your take on things going on in the world. You may start out slow, but in a matter of time, you are out there, voicing your thoughts. You are able to discuss it with other people, usually people you don't know. You can have a little friendly banter, and for the most part, you aren't made to feel ignorant. I don't necessarily think it should be "skilled" rather than accomplished. It's nice to see how other people think on a subject.

  • DDO is just a place to debate, nothing 'great' about it.

    Aside from the fact that DDO is essentially a monopoly because there's no other site to compete with Juggle in terms of debating one on one (even reddit and createdebate are all forum-only methods), DDO has nothing spectacularly great to attract 'skilled debaters'.

    There are no entry requirements (that you can't cheat with a simpel lie of age).

    No regulations to ban members who don't debate well, or to train them (by 'well' I mean to a starndard required to be considered a 'great debater') In fact, from what I've seen, the vast majority of debates go something like this:

    Resolution = "Should we legalize marijuana?"

    Opening debate for Pro: of course we should, mrijuana iz so precious to our lives and rights az hooman beingz....

    Then they forfeit the next two rounds of their stereotypical three round debate and are never seen again on the site.
