Noble effort, but the site is damaged beyond repair. It's time for all of us to call it a day.
So what I was thinking was this: we organise a debating tournament last the whole of May. It could make people more interested in joining the site and contributing, if we collectively get the buzz going. Anyone else interested?
- A list of topics -the more nuanced the better. No debates on Zionism, Islam or big government or anything too obvious.
- Supporting Banners, avatars, logo, etc.
- A list of volunteers to sign up for specific debates
- A schedule of events.
- An accepted structure: independent judges instead of a popular vote? Time limits? Points based on various criteria?
- Round-type suggestions: a devil's-advocate round? Teams round?
Haha... your fatalism has some humor value to it Optimus
I say the tournament can't hurt. But frankly, I might be getting old or something, but DA the way it is now isn't so bad.
Ok - I'm sold. You have my vote. Lets do it!

Archaix vs Malcolm
Taupe - Is it gray or is it brown?
The UN - Should the chairs have an inch more cushion?
The automobile industry - to chrome or not to chrome?
Government bathrooms - Paper towels or hot air blowers?
The answer to these and many more highly controversial, mind riveting questions that liberals everywhere have been wondering about for decades.
Stay tuned for the drama!

When will the world learn that a million men are of no importance compared with one man? [Henry David Thoreau]
Some suggested topics:
Is Orwell overrated?
Is utopianism dead?
Which is more revolutionary: capitalism or socialism?
Is athiesm worse than belief?
Should the US have stayed out of WW1/WW2?
Can Africa ever be a successful continent?
Should we all be emulating Russia/China?
1 Is Orwell overrated? No
2 Is utopianism dead? It was always undefined! I can't even remember the content of the Thomas More book!
3 Which is more revolutionary: capitalism or socialism? There are not defined!
4 Is athiesm worse than belief? Belief in what Yahweh or God?
5 Should the US have stayed out of WW1/WW2? MOST DEFINITELY YES!
6 Can Africa ever be a successful continent? Probably not.
7 Should we all be emulating Russia/China? Russia has too many corporate criminals still residing there, but China is pretty good.
Cool - some of the questions are flawed but that actually makes the debate more interesting.
