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
- 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:
- There are far too many people that are either ignorant or a troll (just look at "No" side of this).
- The moderators are far too lax, thus they hardly do anything about the trolls.
- A lot of answers contain misinformation, thus completely defeating the purpose of the website.
- 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.
- Since most of the time you can Google up the information you want to know, so there are no reasons to use this site anymore, especially when there is a lot of misinformation.
- They believe we shouldn't respect other religions.
- It has a lot of United States Nationalists/Jingoists, and Americans who loathe other countries and only love their own country.
- Many of their polls have heavily biased results in which people who hold different views from the majority are attacked and scorned.
- Similar to TheTopTens, it sounds good on paper, but executed poorly.
- Sometimes, albeit extremely rarely, you might find a debate and some users that are at least decent.
- Most of the problems are caused by the userbase, not the website itself, although it doesn't excuse that the admins are terribly lazy.
