I've come up with a neat way to keep debates on track:
I'm going to ask a series of questions related to the topic. You may debate freely while the question is still on the table. If at any point and time I feel the debate is getting off track, I'll change the question.
It's basically going to work like a court room. I'm the judge. If someone feels that the court room is getting too rowdy just say the word and I'll change the question. However, I will NOT change the question just be because someone disagrees with what you're saying (it's a debate silly)! I will only consider changing the question, if what is being said is completely irrelevant.
Now, I know I'll be contributing my own opinions as well so if I happen to get off topic, just shout ORDER! and I'll get us back on track.
Okay, so hopefully this will go as well as it did in my head and if not, then feel free to close the thread (hey, that rhymed!).
The topic is:
Do they exist?
The first question will be posted after this.
