The debate threads, to me, have become New York City, as represented in the film The Warriors, and no, we're not random members of the Warriors trying to get back to Coney Island. Users are just random members of the city, and there are a few debaters who consider themselves members of the Warriors. They think everyone is out to get them, and they will harass, fight, and do anything they can to prove they're right.
I understand the debate threads. A few years back, I was there, and I understand that things can get a little heated, but seriously, what's up with all the name calling? Why do we resort to that when either losing a debate or dealing with a troll? "Can't we all just get along?" Why can't we just walk away from it? I've been a member of CV for a while now (5 years, I think) and I've been a staffer for two years, and the main thing I LOVE about this site is that it's fun and run by a group of really cool staffers and mods who work to the bone for you guys.
The internet is supposed to be informational and fun, at least that's how I see it, so why can't we just have some fun? Who wants a free hug?
