I know Eric probably thinks I'm a pest but I'm pining away without political debates. There is only one kid in my school who I can have a challenging argument with and I don't know anyone else who will not fall apart after my first argument. Couldn't we at least have a trial of some sort? If not, could anyone tell me of some websites that support this sort of thing?
no politics allowed here :)
go to => http://forum.myspace.com
Intelligent? Did you mean intelligence? Yeah, Myspace should do the trick.
If politics were allowed, I wonder how many arguments relating to Bobby Fischer we would have here!
I must admit that I've never understood why there needs to be a ban on politics or religion. but I do try to keep to the rules.
Hi Erik, the same could be said about most things, but thats just my personal values and beliefs. At the end of the day, it's your site and you make the rules. If people don't like the rules they are free to go where they can discuss politics and religion.
Why would you want to aruge?
The use or the word 'argue' is not meant to mean that you go all out to create a war, but it is more to do with presenting a case for your side of the discussion, somewhat like lawers do in court when they argue their case.
Civility in court? All lies!
erik, I concur. There are plenty of places to go online for policital debate. I prefer to play a game of chess and not have to deal with it.
As a disclaimer, i am a political nut, but it has a time and place and here is not it.
by the by, since people are now debating on chess.com about how debating political issues on chess.com is banned, does this mean that we are all breaking the rules by debating whether politics can be debated? (phew, out of breath)
Nice one mate, beat me to it! There is also not supposed to be posts that would incite religious debate too, check out the Time Travel thread, post #101! Now I am inclined to reply to this guy but because it's not allowed, I cannot.
Not so much argue as debate political issues. It sharpens and educates the mind as well as exercising the logical faculties of our minds.
