    "Debate" is what you learn in academic "Debate" classes. It is not what you see on television or hear on Hannity.

    I thought that debate was seeing who can make the most creative use of common debate fallacies, such as reductio ad absurdum, argumentum ad logicam, argumentum ad hominem, and of course, the ever popular argumentum ad nauseam.

    Here is what I want to do to this thread:

    Cool-cat-high-fives.gif


    BTW, there are just as many threads in this section for the wrong reasons as there are in other sections. And it's not different on any other forum I have modded or was an admin.

    So that's your strategy.....

    I love how just about any topic anywhere on the site can start as one topic then go to cats lol

    I believe that a large portion of MFP users are actually cats. Cats go where they want and post where they want.

    Or they're dogs pretending to be cats to hide their true identity...

    I have seen repeated posts in the debate forums that are not topics for debate, they are questions about weight-loss of lack of it, exercise, and diet, that is, how to and why questions, not what do you think about this topic of debate. That leads to the question in the title, "Do people not understand the meaning of the word "debate"?"

    That's exactly why I don't even waste my time reading, posting or flagging threads that don't belong in this subforum any more. I had high hopes for it when it was started, but it's digressed into just another version of General Discussion. The usual inane, redundant genpop threads.

    I think perhaps this thread may be better suited for the suggestions/feedback section.

    With that logic shouldn't this discussion be out of the the debate section?

    Since it is about the debate section, I don't how it belongs anywhere else.

    Its not a debate. Its not understanding how a forum works. There is no forum out there that doesnt deal with this type of thing. People use the app, which doesn't have the definitions below it, and end up choosing the wrong section. It happens all the time in every single one of the sections. It happened all the time on my car forums as well. Some people dont understand, some dont read, and sometimes they just choose what they think is best.

    Not seeing this as a debate.
