This is the rules of debating
The reason this thread is created is because there are so many users who decides to enter a debate thread and start posting without having the intention of debating and it ends with someone disagreeing with their opinion and then an argument would happen thus ruining the debate and the thread will obviously be locked for being off topic or drama.
If you can't debate or have any intention of debating, then don't post because you're ruining the thread for others.
What is "debate"?
- A formal discussion/argument on a particular topic in a formal manner.
- To engage in an discussion by discussion opposing points.
Rules Of Debating
. Do not
debate if you can't debate. Simple.
Because all you're doing is ruining the fun for other people who want to debate.
. Be calm while debating. Don't get angry and start using inappropriate language just because you don't agree with other people opinion or that someone disagree with you.
It wouldn't hurt if you could maybe use a proper grammar and perfect spelling. It's that simple. No one can understand what you're talking about and I see that happen a lot.
. This part is for all the O.P's to read.
Some O.P's would just create a thread and leave it just like that. If you create the thread, you should maybe share some of your opinions. And what I hate the most is that while people are debating, the O.P's would enter the thread and starts acting all bossy when they didn't even share any opinions at all.
. When you are debating, give an opinion that actually makes sense and maybe explain the reason for your opinion because I've seen a lot of people giving a stupid opinion and defend them when they couldn't even provide a fact to back their opinion.

c. Any less criticizable.
Playing the "It's my opinion, so deal with it" card is pathetic. It means you understand your opinion is based on pure bias, but because it's your opinion, that somehow means it's okay? Wut?
. Respect other debaters. Don't start any nonsense bull and turned it into an argument. No one likes an idiot who ruins a debate.

No sweeping generalizations or statements, seriously, I've gotten so tired of seeing this.
Don't debate and then claim you are correct without understanding the topic/other person's argument/etc. If you don't know something, ask.
No "red roosters" as people like to call them. Don't try to lead the argument or topic away from something by bringing up an unrelated subject open for debate.
Note : Other users can also post anything they might like to add to the rules.
