hi :)

I think youre all great!

Ive noticed that there isnt a debate forum or somewhere to really discuss non disney. I understand why, things can get heated.

Its just that when my disney trip is over i still want somewhere to go and chat. have you thought about this? perhaps with some strong rules about arguing rather than discussing?

I haven't really thought about it. I do know that the Disboards disbanded their debate board a long time ago because it often got quite nasty over there. I'd hate to see that happen here. Just my 2 cents.

Yeah in principle it does seem a good idea but it only takes a comment to be taken the wrong way and things could get out of hand IMHO.

I really dont like debate boards. I remember only too well how it was on the Dis a few years ago and it wasnt pretty. Personally, I dont even like political threads so thats my 2 cents worth too. :lipwobble:

We do chit chat about sensitive topics though, and we do follow Robert's Rules of Order. :D

Seriously, we have had a couple of threads that address sensitive issues and although we don't all have the same opinion (THANK HEAVEN) we discuss our differing points of view quite decently. :yes:

True debate is best left to those educated in the process, but here we don't necessarily shy away from emotive topics. :D

I got into a debate once. They didn't follow the rules of debate. It was scary and I had to go away from there. I'm glad I did.

Isn't that the truth, Dawn. :eek: It was just a board that bashed, plain and simple. No couching it behind the guise of debate. There wasn't a true debate there. :nono:

Hope you all can "discuss" nicely here. It's election year in the US. :207:
