Should the section of the ToS that applies directly to the debate sections be permanently shown at the top of the list for each category?
"Controversial topics and debate are great, but they should be done constructively. Be prepared for others to agree AND disagree with you and your ideas.
When you post something, especially about a controversial topic, expect that your viewpoints and opinions may be vigorously questioned, challenged, and held up to scrutiny. If having your opinions challenged and being expected to defend your position will make you uncomfortable, please don't post about that topic."
It seems like an endless cycle - new people go into the debate sections, freak out when someone replies to what they've written, then run off to here or the chatterboxes to have a meltdown about someone "engaging" them in conversation or taking things "too seriously".
I do think a small part of the problem is the P&CE section appears in the Debate category, but since it doesn't specifically say "debate" in the name, some people not as familiar with the structure of Answers don't realize they're in a Debate section. That doesn't explain the ones who participate in Religion Debate or Parenting Debate, though.Answer Question
