    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.

    We do have Chit Chat where we talk about just about anything









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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.
