Probably not, but we'll see.

Except word salad is more derogatory than straw man. That is not making a personal statement. Straw man is a reflection on how the other is performing their remarks.
I think we both could realize that ''word salad'' is neither derogatory or a phrase that will be used often. If it is used out of context, the panal will recommend to delete or otherwise sanction the comments.
I will not get into a "discussion" about something that will only be a biased thread about something as foolish as UFO's for as yet there isn't one piece of FACTUAL evidence that ever has been found that would suggest that "aliens" ever were on Earth but only people who enjoy creating controversy over such nonsense in order to make money on their books and "actual videos" that they present. So you all go at it and in the end all you will have are the same people either "believing" or "skeptical" about the subject that has no FACTS to ever prove it exists except in the minds of those who make up such silliness.Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!

No one will be allowed to enter a biased judging panel. Either sides are biased but this is about a fair trial.
Please enter, I hope you'll be surprised at how ''levelled'' the arguements will be.
When I say the judging panel will not be biased, I mean against individual people. There own beliefs is something you cannot help, hence why I want a judging panel of equal members for and against, but are not allowed to have any conduct in the debates. Only to moderate it, like a senate sub-committee.
But the judges are already biased either for or against UFO"s before they even start. How can you determine that they aren't? I can say I'm not when in actuality I am so I can easily fool you to pick me as a judge and you'd not be the wiser. So you have a very big honesty problem with this biased problem.
Word salad is no more or less derogatory than straw man. This is the problem: you don't seem to understand the meaning of some words, so if you're going to put a ban on some of them, you had better list them, because your definition of what is derogatory isn't going to be anyone else's definition.
I'll say again: Just keep it simple. Don't call someone else an idiot, a troll, a jerk, a douche, or any other personal insults. What the person presents as an argument is fair game.
So, wait, just a paragraph ago you said it was derogatory. Now it isn't?
There is one difference you keep overlooking.
''word salad'' can be used frequently.
''Straw man'' will be a relatively rare usage.
I have written those rules up. Stop being stuck on this quibble. Either enjoy the debate or tender your resignation from the debates.
Not true. They are NOT allowed to be involved in the discussions per se. They may only censor when each side of the judging panels agree. That is as unbiased as you can get.
If neither Judges can agree, then no action can be taken. It will considered as a situation which cannot be ''judged on'' because it cannot be anonymously decided.
So if they are biased one way or another they can "censor" those who they don't like. It is just very difficult to not inject your own feelings about a subject when monitoring the subject being debated is all I'm trying to point out.
Cosmic, you seem to be missing the point.
The panel judges are made of four members. No ruling can be made unless the ruling panel agree.
So there is no biased attitudes in the ruling since both sides are of equal party.
If they don't like the person, that person can call on the High Judge who has ultimate power over the judges.
This was originally about a thread where we can argue about UFO proof, I somehow ended up in a debate on the side for UFO's. I am not on any side.
You can tender your resignation.
I was aware when you said ''for'' I thought you meant you where for the UFO phenomenon to be real and said of alien technology. I would advise you then to reconsider your application, or make a choice now.
Or I will make the choice for you.
Instead of a debate, why don't you do what you originally said...
A thread to discuss both sides of the argument... ie, not with such strict rules.
What if all 4 were biased for UFO's , then they could easily censor anything that shows their point of view is wrong.Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
