I'm here to take a look, so persuade me to spend more time in here. My online debate tour of duty has been Forandagainst, Yickyak, CreateDebate, and then here. There were a few others I think but I never got past a day or two on them. Seems to me they're all basically the same except for a gimmick. On CreateDebate that gimmick was the ability of the debate originator to ban anyone they wanted. On DebateIsland it seems to be shades of grey of seriousness - casual up to formal. But then I scan the current debates and some familiar names and it doesn't look all that different. Anway, it's Christmas and New Years. Give me some good reasons to stay at the DebateIsland party in the weeks/months/years ahead.
