Loving some of the trolling in this thread. It's great to see that the toxicity of it has spread to a thread about it.

 

A bit is an understatement.

Nah, I think the word toxic is a bit of an overused word honestly.

Honestly my care runs a little low these days for the place. I participate from time to time, but I am rather done with the whole "morality" part of debates which goes on there fairly often, I already know where I stand when it comes to moral issues. I mostly respond to threads that concern geopolitics as that is my field. 

From my experience, the people who are most dissatisfied with the forum are either the "I'm just here for ponies" type or the people who have been btfo'ed so hard in that forum that their salt is saltier than the Dead Sea. Not everyone can handle it or argue within the boundaries of the rules without getting too personal and going the ad hominem rout. Takes a lot of levelheadedness to participate there actually~

Whatever happens in the debate symposium stays in debate symposium. As much as I like a civil debate, that never happen most of the time....it can get ugly sometime both me and the debater I'm opposing against. But at the end, it's always best not to take it personal or make an enemy with the person. On the positive side, It's insightful and I do like a conversation with people who both shares or oppose different views. Hell, it's actually a better group of people to talk with compare to the other sites I know.

I have no use for it. Debating is just a pretty word for arguing endlessly and ignoring the point being made by either side. It usually ends up getting ugly and solves nothing.
