Is 100 debates by one user in one week too much?
They are not spam. They are perfectly valid ideas for a debate. I look at your (PrayerFails) debates. I ofttimes add arguments. I look at Dacey's, I look(ed) at Hmicciche's, I look at JakeJ's debates. If I find one that interests me, I will post. What you need to do is advertise your debates. Mention it to other users - if you find a similar debate, add a link to your own.
The reason for my number of debates is that I have long had a deep interest in sociology. I have always wanted to know why people think what. This site allows me to pose questions to people and see how they respond, or to see how they take a counter-argument. I wish not to belittle anybody - indeed, I find your debates quite fascinating - but that is no reason not to create my own. Nowhere have I read a rule which said that one is allowed to make only X number in a week. If there was such a rule, I would abide by it.
Yes. We need good strong quality debates, with people who give well thought out and intelligent answers.
You're spamming. Your debates may be good, but when you make 10 more, there's no point in replying to them because nobody has the time to get through them all.
I'll look for the quote if I need to, but I'm sure you'll be honest and admit that you said that unlike joecalvary, you go for quantity rather than quality.
Which basically means most of your debates suck and you are point mongering. Sure, if we were seagulls, you could claim to have more fish than anyone else. The problem is, they are all rotten.
I'm happy to be at the number of points I have. Other than my silly and satiric debates (which actually have a point after all), my debate topics and supporting arguments are well thought out, artfully presented and well documented with plentiful links. That's what matters to me. Points are meaningless, as proven by your high count
And you? Spam-bot.
A rivalry implies that the competition is mutual. Would I join a contest to see which of us can spam and scam our way to the top of the vote pile? Not my style.
It is said that the guy with the tallest tower feels superior to others. But if the tower is made of shit, it is not especially impressive to anyone.
Can they all be called debates? As you yourself said, you are going for quantity rather than quality -- and it shows.
What is the point of getting the most points if they are gained illegitimately?
But congratulations. You have the most points. You are the big weiner. :)
I am not doing it by talking to myself, I am adding additional details to various debates, most of which have been accessed by others recently. I usually find them in the 'Active Debates' section, which means that somebody wrote something recently!
I create debates. People respond, I respond. If I get no responses, I forget about it. But, points are only of tertiary concern for me. I prefer debating in general, and I enjoy getting my 'point' across.
Well, yes. I mean REALLY. Who would have the kind of time to do that? And I understand that you really like this site, but personally, I think you have an addiction to it. That is NOT good. Plus, you really shouldn't make a few stupid and pointless debates just to get points. And you say you're NOT spamming....yeah right. But SERIOSLY. Go out and do something else but this every once and a while! REALLY!!!!
