It seems like you guys had a lot of intense debates in here!  I think it's
important that both sides present evidence for claims.  It is definitely
more effective than attacking each other personally.  Whenever I got into
an argument with my sisters (this happened more often when we were younger-
thankfully they both mellowed out now haha) they would attack my
*appearance* the whole time during a showdown.  It had nothing to do with
the main argument!  I'd just brush it off since I knew they had nothing
better to say.  Anyway, the best debates include the presentation of facts
and then an analysis of them.  Getting angry and throwing mud will cause
the other side to block what you have to say and ignore some valid points
you make.  I think both sides have to listen to each other's criticisms
fairly and not get defensive.  Hopefully, I let everyone know how we can
debate more successfully in here without resorting to angry battles.  :-)
