go to ACTIVE DEBATE ROOM
go to suggested LIVELY LINKS to discussions on other sites.
Alright, Perhaps this will simplify things.
This page is where the process begin
1.) You find a post which you think needs to be defended, or you write a post which you’d like to see challenged.
2.) Promote that link however you’d like, but please also add it to the comments below. (please use “like” buttons)
3.) The discussion begins on the ORIGINAL POST (or, perhaps it’s already in progress).
4.) Suggest that the discussion be brought to the Defend Your Post Waiting Room (if it seems appropriate) until the author & the challenger are engaged.
Reasons to bring the discussion to Defend Your Post:
-The original author is not approving comments. The author can promote a charity here, and that may motivate them. They may also be less threatened by the one-on-one format.
-You can’t get anyone to challenge your original post on your own site, or maybe you just want to pick up some free press.
-The conversations are becoming hard to follow or comments are becoming long-winded. On Defend Your Post, the author will be isolated by one challenger, and each will be limited to 500 words (more or less) per response.
5.) If the discussion comes here … you will no longer be directly engaging the author unless you are the challenger. However, viewers/audience members can still chat about the post on the audience comments pages.
IF YOU LIKE THIS CONCEPT, BUT THINK THINGS COULD BE IMPROVED — THEN PLEASE MAKE SUGGESTIONS BELOW.
