    Serious debates here, just don't make it ugly!

    This is what the section description is. However I think it deserves special attention that many threads here lately have not been up to par.

    What is a debate?

    Debate: -a discussion, as of a public question in an assembly, involving opposing viewpoints:
    -a formal contest in which the affirmative and negative sides of a proposition are advocated by opposing speakers.

    A debate is not pick your favorite color, tv show, browser, etc. That's a poll, not a debate. There are no clear opposing sides. Those certainly don't qualify as serious.

    Also I would like to mention again, that the forum rules do apply here.
    Here are a few I'd like to point out:

    There has been a lot of flaming and personal attacks here. There has also been some racism recently. Keep it clean guys, most of you know what is right and wrong.

    If someone says something you know is wrong, don't humor them and flame back, report the thread, and don't reply.

    Don't post things here with the sole intention of making someone else mad. That's just fuel to a flamewar.

    Try to stick to the topic.

    A few threads have been closed because they end up in petty personal arguments and attacks. That is not the point of a debate section.

    These sorts of things just ruin it for the rest.

    A point to note about debates.

    If you're going to debate, debate about the topic. If you don't have anything constructive to say about the topic, then don't say anything at all. This section is becoming a place where people come to put other people's opinions down and just generally insult each other.

    Stop insulting each other and begin debating rather than bringing intelligence into these arguments. People are entitled to an opinion and their inability to speak fluent English doesn't make their opinion anymore false.

    Kind Regards,
