Currently doing some formalised debating at university, I ponder the possibility of such a thing here to get thought and discussion kick-started.
Month-by-month topics, concrete for and against teams, gradings, some basic rules and practices, that sort of things. Would people be interested in seeing such a thing? Taking part, choosing topics, judging discussions, moderators and more? Where it is possible, the subjects will be topical, or otherwise relevant but more broad.
THESE SORTS OF DEBATES WOULD NOT REPLACE EXISTING FORMS OF DISCUSSION, JUST EXIST IN TANDEM WITH THEM.
