Debate.org

From Rotten Websites Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

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, so there are no reasons to use this site anymore, especially when there is a lot of misinformation.
  7. They believe we shouldn't respect other religions.
  8. It has a lot of United States Nationalists/Jingoists, and Americans who loathe other countries and only love their own country.
  9. Many of their polls have heavily biased results in which people who hold different views from the majority are attacked and scorned.

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.
  3. Most of the problems are caused by the userbase, not the website itself, although it doesn't excuse that the admins are terribly lazy.

I used to have an account on Debate.org, but my mom changed my password, since she figured out about how toxic it is.

Probably a good thing, though.
