I have been on many debate sites, and usually spend some time at these sites. I want to say that this site is exactly what is advertised. I have never seen a system that keeps thing civilized until now. I'm impressed, and it's been a little tough to get use to. But it has already forced me to construct my replies in a less argumentative manner, and more like a debate should be done.....courteous. I have a ways to go, but I'm learning. Thanks Jaime and Mike for what you have accomplished. You really have succeed where many failed. The only other sites I've seen with this type of atmosphere are religious debate site, and less than a handful at that.
Guess that's why in polite company, people should avoid the subjects of religion and politics unless moderated tightly.
Three cheers each for Jaime and Mike, plus all the volunteers who moderate!
