maybe we should have a hard cap on number of pages per thread
I disavow anyone in the movement involved in any illegal,unethical, sexist, or racist behavior. However, I don't have the energy or time to investigate each person and case, and a lack of individual disavowals for each incident should not be construed as condoning such behavior.

John- No one is saying debate has no place.
We are saying that it is overly fetishised and that the standard debate model may not be appropriate to every situation.

I don't quite get the "overly fetishised" claim, but of course I fully agree that a formal debate is not appropriate to every situation.
