2006-07-28 [RiddleRose]: just to clarify, by upsetting topic, do you mean murder rape and pillaging? or do you mean politics, religion, and abortion rights? or some of each? or other things completely? what is your definition of upsetting topics? maybe we could get some sort of list of topics to avoid at all costs... i ask because "debate" to me means something political usually, but you might have something else in mind.
2006-07-28 [Calliope]: Well when it comes to debate there's always someone who'll be upset so I'm not going to say any topics are out of bounds but use descretion when pursuing certain things. For example, if you're using religion, don't start bashing all Gods and calling people stupid and if you're defending say the death penalty, don't go off on a tangent about how bad mankind is and how we deserve to die. I'll change the rule so that it's more clear :)
2006-07-29 [RiddleRose]: thank you. debating is a touchy sort of thing, you know? like you say, someone is always upset. i shall be careful. :)
2006-07-29 [Calliope]: That's all I ask. It should also make it easier that you aren't debating with someone but just recording a fictional debate. Hopefully people don't get as upset reading as they would partaking.
2006-08-05 [Today for you, tomorrow for me]: Oooo, I really wanna do this, but grrr. Damn computers . . . Who knows? Maybe I'll get it in on time.
2006-08-05 [Today for you, tomorrow for me]: Question, does it matter what the debate is about?
2006-08-05 [Calliope]: Nope, it's your choice. I just ask that if you pick a really controversial issue like religion, politics, etc. that you use your discretion while writing. :)
2006-08-07 [RiddleRose]: loverly badges... ;)
2006-08-07 [Calliope]: Thanks XD
2006-08-24 [Kuzco]: timelimit? profanity limit?
2006-08-24 [Calliope]: No deadline yet and as I said, the point of this isn't to cause controversy and upset people, it's to help your dialogue skills. In my opinion, it takes more skill to not use profanity these days than it does to just add a cuss in. That doesn't mean don't use it at all but try to keep it to a minimum please :)
2006-09-04 [Kuzco]: Got it in, no profanity that I could find. Word limit, I'm sorry about that. Went overboard, had to cut out two topics...anywa
2006-09-05 [RiddleRose]: ok, my computer is finally fixed, so i can get a move on! ha ha!
