Debate.org is a site where people debate stuff and express their opinion. It also has a forum and a poll. It is a part of the Juggle.com's network of companies.

Why It's Rotten

  1. It is filled with a lot of poorly-made debates, ranging from ludicrous and laughable to downright offensive and terroristic. Here are a few examples that somehow are believed by more than 50 percent of the voters:
  2. There are far too many people that are either ignorant or a troll (just look at "No" side of this).
  3. The moderators are far too lax thus they hardly do anything about the trolls.
  4. A lot of answers contain misinformation, thus completely defeating the purpose of the website.
  5. The website is filled with bugs which can make features unusable.
    • In fact, there's a bug where you can't sign up an account.
  6. Since most of the time you can Google up the information you want to know, then there are no reasons to use this site anymore, especially because there is a lot of misinformation.

Redeeming qualities

  1. Similar to TheTopTens, it sounds good on paper, but executed poorly.
  2. Sometimes, albeit extremely rarely, you might find a debate and some users that are at least decent.
