This forum is just turning into a secondary COM....many people will even post the same questions on both forums..just wondering, and missing where all the debating went?

MOST HELPFUL POSTS

There are plenty of debates on this forum. If one is not to your liking, you are free to find one that is.



Cross posting, to multiple debate sites, is not anything we can do something about. Many of our members belong to both sites. If this is an issue for you, then feel free to only post on one forum. I have chosen to stay only on DM because of this issue.



Heated debates do not always need to happen. The women here are adults and can conduct themselves with civility. The odd few debates that get out of hand are handled by the mods. Debating heated issues, with tact, is possible and happens here quite frequently. If this is not what you are looking for, I suggest going to another debate forum.



I am now locking this thread. If there is nothing you want to debate currently on the board, find something to your liking and feel free to post it.

I find many of the debates very interesting, top on my list are the thread about incest and thread about unwanted babies. Just because YOU don't like the topics, doesn't mean there aren't very interesting debates going on.
Open a thread on a topic that interests YOU, instead of blaming the rest of us for not catering to your needs.

Alright, I've got ask....are we spending so much time together on CoM that our "cycles" are running at the same time??

Marnia asked a question, why is everyone geeking out about it. Big, whoop, I've noticed sometimes that the debating hits a drag...right now it's not in my opinion but, that doesn't mean everyone else has to think that.

You want to come here and post a thread like this, and then you expect people to just open it and agree with you? Why don't you start a debating community of your own if this one bores you so much?

Marina, this community isn't so rigid that you can't start a thread that isn't a debate. I hope that helps.

I was just going to say the same thing. You just started a debate on how you feel there is a lacking of debates hahaha.

I'm finding it ironic that you start a post to bitch about the fact that there are no debates rather than starting a debate instead. Could it be that you have no original ideas, unlike Kimberly, and just prefer to attack people. I've seen you around before, but I don't remember it contributing much.

I just noticed that 7 of the debates on the first page are yours...no wonder you are taking this personnally...lol...sorry but I would hug my child if he/she was gay and tell them I love them...no 12-12-12 is not doomsday, and incest is a terrible thing. I can't remember the others you posted. This was not a post directly about the debates you are trying to start...I was making a general statement. If you are just going to bicker back and forth with me saying the same thing repeatedly..then just stop opening my thread. Otherwise think of something original to say. Thanks!

Maybe you are just uninteresting. Especially if you can't come up with a topic of your own to throw out there. Make an effort to contribute not to just sit there growing mold complaining.

When is the last time you started a conversation on here? Don't start bitchin' unless you actually have something to contribute.

Post something debatable instead of complaining. Don't leave it up to every one else. If you want it done the way you like it, do it yourself.

Okay, I just scrolled through the first page and noticed only 2 threads that weren't specifically started as debates, and one of those, about dinnertime prayer, turned into one. So really, what's your issue?

Kind of, yes.... since I have lost interest. I came here for the heated debates that would occur regularly....now it is making me yawn.

Did you read the threads? Are you sure you're in the right place? Yeah, there's a few non-debates but they're few & far between. And so what? Is it really problematic?
