The word "lately" is "late" with the suffix "-ly". In what way is it not a word?

Side: Yes!

While I won't name names (I think we all know a few), it does get tiring to hear the same debates being used over and over and over again. Wording it differently does not a new debate make.

Side: No!

I hate point farmers. I could have more than 30301 points if I started point farming. ;)

Side: Yes!

Considering that Hellno is gone and Cartman doesn't get a lot of points, I'd say you can try to fill the full leaderboard.

Side: Yes!

What do you mean, fill the full leader board? ;)

Side: Yes!

No because the majority of the responses on this debate are not mine.

Side: No!

Hmmm... never heard of it. I think Cartman does that now that I think about it.

I could not care less about points. This isn't a videogame where you move up a level if you get a zillion points. We're all just people making arguments, and either your argument is worth beans or it isn't.

Hey, if a new member comes along and crushes a high point regular in an argument then doesn't that prove how little the points matter?

Side: No!

Points only indicate who has more time on their hands.

Points just tell how many of your arguments were supports or disputes, on varied debates (and your debates), and how much you downvote. All that, on equal weight, in a single number. There's little influence of upvotes too.

For example, maggot has downvoted at least 2500 times, or perhaps less if he uses the Clarify button a lot. Though I wouldn't be surprised.

Joe, on the other hand, uses mainly the Support button and rarely downvotes.

Most members are somewhere in between.

Not like most people even debate, though. Some, like stain, occasionally downvote (even though he said he doesn't care about points) and some are here just for validation (anyone who matches the description on my 2 little debates on the topic) - it is terribly easy to defeat them if they try to argue. Like putting knife through butter.

And there's this Yuri - an obvious name reference, considering that his previous image was Einstein - I doubt there's anyone similarly down on reason, who can't refute anything but just keeps demanding some random notion of explanation (and lying more than frequently and pathetically) and thinks he won.

Hmm... I'd say we have quite a variety of spammers here.

Side: Yes!

Also that much of this message seems to have been rather irrelevant here.

Side: Yes!

To be completely frank, who cares? "Points" on this site are a completely arbitrary distinction.

Side: No!

Starting debates and responding to others all for the sake of collecting points.

Or doing multiple debates on the same thing. Or spamming the debate site with pointless debates (that's would be under the opinion of what's pointless vs. what isn't though), or responding multiple times, mostly the same thing. :D

Side: Yes!
