Debate General

Let’s argue!
About what, you ask? Pretty much anything! So long as it’s not stupid.
Only one suggestion- please don’t start a new topic unless the previous one has died down or gotten out of control.
And with that, I’ll let the next poster begin the discussion.

I debate the necessity for this thread. If there’s anything important to debate, we’ll have a thread for it in general and virtually all serious threads in general are debate oriented anyway. We don’t need ‘blank slate’ threads for these discussions. Debates get their own threads regardless

When there’s nothing to debate, there’s nothing to debate. Attempting to prompt one without any real direction will just result in bored shitposts

I agree.

The reason for a forum is to give the public a voice of their own. With such, we would obviously disagree on issues. This doesn’t mean we should keep quiet with our views as that would be turning away from the original intentions of a public forum. And so, I would say that ever topic is open for debate regardless of content. Which is to say, I do not think there should be one specific thread for open debate.

Furthermore, the idea that we should have one thread for debate would invite the idea that debate does not belong in other threads. I can not agree with such a sentiment. If we could not call out a thread for it’s topic or purpose, there would be no regulations on content. Any thread could stand unopposed, unquestioned. To do so would be to invite chaos into these forums.

I suppose that’s possible. On the other hand, I once created a thread for people to make quick little jokes about pretending to be their avatars, and watched in slack-jawed awe as a group of users turned it into a friggin’ epic saga that’s now lasted, what, nine months now? I guess what I’m saying is I think my fellow KYM denizens can turn just about anything into gold. Why don’t we at least give this a try? If it doesn’t work, then it doesn’t work, and that’ll be that.

If Michigan earned it’s independence through extreme and holy revolution and became a great Nazarene crusader state and renamed itself the Holy Michigan Empire, conquered Canada and surrounding states of the Union, created a race of Humanoid Otters and Wolverines, vassalized Ethopia and made it the strongest state in Africa, went into space, and became a super power for over 5000 years. . .

What would your stance be on Starcraft 2?

They took it seriously.
When page did it turn into serious business?

I love me some good oral action *wink**wink* hopefully someone brings up a big and juicy topic so the huge walls of text begin to flow.

This is so sexually perverted, that Lord Protector and Grand Puritan Oliver Cromwell bust into my room yelled “Fun is a sin” and proceeded to beat the shit of me and crush my computer.

He then burned all my technology at the stake and died in my front yard.

I would still be jelly that they get a Starcraft 2 while AOE wallows in Microsoft’s basement. I would also be jelly that the Detroit City Clowncil gets to issue Supreme Holy Edicts about our Scriptures.

You know you want a Michigan Crusader Holy Empire. Who doesn’t want a Michigan Crusader Holy Empire.
