I think it would be fun to have our own debate club, but I don’t really like disagreements, so let’s please cut the debate part.

Maybe we can talk about our favorite debate rules instead? But only positively, I don’t want debates about debate rules, either!

My favorite debate rule is “if someone is saying something in a debate to you, you say something back”.

I won’t debate that.

I can no longer call myself a Star Wars fan. I’m sick of the same played-out aesthetics/tropes being remixed/regurgitated time-&-time again; I’m sick of the deteriorating characterization/worldbuilding which have been in play since 1983; I’m sick of the toxic fanboys from all ideological camps; I’m sick of the capitalist pigs who refuse to allow this IP into the public domain where it rightly belongs. So while I may still admire the first two films for their technical achievements and characters, I’m no longer capable of enjoying Star Wars in any capacity due to the reasons delineated above.

Good for you. I know it’s a very general rule, but in my opinion, it’s essential to any debate. I’d even say it’s the debate rule #1.

Do you have a favourite debate rule?

If you don’t like someone’s debating style, then forbid everyone from even debating that topic.

Best. Debate. Rule. EVER.

My favorite debate rule is that there are limited times that the same person can reply.

What is your favorite debate style?

Second best. Best rule is if you don’t like someone’s debating style, you both forbid everyone from debating the topic AND nuke the topic from orbit so everyone instantly forgets there ever was a topic in the first place.

I like Lincoln-Douglas debate. But only if Douglas can’t show up. The disagreements make me uncomfortable.

Those were political figures. Congratulations, you just earned yourself a ban.

Wearing pants should be a rule.

It is a worthy amendment and doesn’t contradict anything I wrote but maybe we can clarify that there is only pants for half of us, so we can have shirts and skins?
