Too bad BigLebowski isn't in this. I would've loved to have seen a Lebowski vs. Jackie Treehorn debate.

:-D

Lebowski is a panel member. You can make as many posts as you want for 48 hours, try to rebutt the other person's arguments.

Ah yes, that old chesnut. I remember back in school days being part of the debate team in English and having to try and 'defend' a serial killer (Rose West).

I got trounced, but at least I turned up.

They'll be flying to be sure.

Though personally I would have enjoyed a head to head with DavidMarver as he and I have had a slobberknocker or two before.

We haven't made a final decision yet, but giants and I had discussed this and we think that it will probably work something like this:

For questions that are very open ended, such as many of the history questions might be, we will leave it up to the debaters to choose their person/side/thing/etc. to argue for. Hopefully with those questions people don't pick the same thing, but if they do happen to, we will throw that out as a possible answer, and if they keep choosing the same thing, we will continue to throw out those, until they choose different things.
For questions that are open ended but have a smaller range of possible choices and/or have one answer that is completely obvious and will inevitabely be chosen by both people, we will provide a list to choose from, or exclude certain possible answers.
For questions that have 2 answers, unfortunately, there is no way to make sure that people have different answers without it being unfair to someone. We may also just choose sides for people, and they have to find a way to argue that side.

Our goal is to make this as much a "debate" as possible, with people arguing for different sides, and the way we have set it up we should be able to do that in most cases. If people choose the same side in a 2 answer question, we will vote based on the strength of the arguements given.
