This website has some serious problems. In the debate https://www. Debate. Org/debates/We-need-bigger-government/1/, The voting period began on March 7, 2019. Five days later an email went out saying an "argument was due" (after the debate ended? ). Also in that debate CON's argument was lost in round 2/. Here is a comment made. . . . "I am CON. Again I posted my reply. . . The timer reset to 3 days. . . My argument again did not appear. . . ~! " and then "Finally. . . . My argue has been posted. Thank you. ". Then later that argument disappeared!

There was a similar problem in the debate. . Https://www. Debate. Org/debates/Trump-is-a-bad-president/3/. Here is the comment "Where is my round 4 argument. It was posted, Accepted, And now gone. "

These glitches are affecting these debates. They must be fixed.

Also these "glitched" debates must be "set aside" until these issues are fixed.

This website has almost no moderation, So complaints are futile

that's easy to get around, You just go to debates and get to it that way through the public link

I would definitely like them to fix the bug with capitalization after commas, Too. It makes me cringe every time.

It's not. As far as I can tell the moderators have abandoned this site altogether.

The site moderators that used to be on debate. Org in the past have long since been absent. Or in the very least they barely come on anymore. The last one I can see that was online was a week ago, But he hasn't been moderating for nearly a year so that pretty much sums it up.
