Best Debator?
« on: April 15, 2011, 04:45:58 PM »

Alright, first thing I would like to say is this:

If I did not include you, please do not feel offended. I added the people that I see debating a lot.


So vote!

May I suggest that you add an option "none of the above"?

Ehhh... the reason I'd prefer not to is because it destroys the integrity of the poll


Like adding an "I dont care" option.
If you dont care, dont vote.

im2smart4u is the most knowledgeable, while somewhat sarcastic/offensive. Duskling is not quite as knowledgeable, but is less hotheaded, so they basically tie.
I'd say my only strength is being the one of the few who seems to acknowledge when they do/don't have a valid opinion, in which case I either cite my ignorance towards the topic, or just don't participate.

I say Duckling, as he is more up-to-date and all-round more intelligent than I' am, and he's not very offensive at all (Though there are those rare moments).


P.S.: I'm not too crazy about threads comparing the intelligence of forum members, however indirectly it may be doing so.

I'm with Duskie-Poo on this. While I voted, this will not end well.

Duskling: Aw... that's nice of you. But don't you be giving yourself an inferiority complex now...  :(

Buggy: It could end well if we end it well. Maybe that's a bit profound, but the point is that if all of us are the best people we can be, we can choose not to be led into an argument by someone having a temporary lapse of judgement, eh?

Its not necessarily intelligence, just a combination of political knowledge, levelheadedness, and eloquent communication. And effort put towards displaying those three traits in these forums. I don't find it offensive nobody voted for me, especially considering I try more to weigh in my opinion than convince others, and never have only really been up-to-date in politics a few times.

This won't end well if we choose to make it so.


I think that we are mature enough to handle 'losing' in a poll like this.

Am I wrong?

No, deagonx. But I don't understand your statement at the beginning. Might you be implying that we will choose to end this thread badly?

It will only end badly, if we choose to make it end badly.

You guys are all master-debators.

I'd say my only strength is being the one of the few who seems to acknowledge when they do/don't have a valid opinion, in which case I either cite my ignorance towards the topic, or just don't participate.
If I don't care about a topic, I don't particpate.  If I find a topic interesting but don't know much about it, then I ask questions.

Please tell me that we aren't having a debate about who is the best debator.

Can you give us the option to change our votes?

I'm glad to say "No," to that. We're just stating our opinions.
