Another suggestion - each debate should have two threads. One for the actual debate and a second one for discussion. It would be more interesting to have the discussion thread running concurrent with the debate. I would also suggest that the debaters are not permitted to post in the discussion thread until the debate is formally over. My two cents.
This is the thread for the audience to clap, cheer or jeer while enjoying popcorn and freespirit's scones, jam & tea.
All very civil of course!
Admin By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.
I LOVE this idea of a debate board. I'm sitting here at my computer, sipping my 6th pot of tea and on my 3rd plate of scones, waiting in great antici.........................................pation for Glory's first post.

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE,
Just a little note to say that I am busy as a bee, cooking up some scones and muffins, I thought I would do my part and help out freespirit with some of the cooking. Everyone be sure and get all your chores done..... Surely the great debates are about to begin.

Careful there Gene..... You keep drinking all that tea, and you'll end up like that Indian I heard of that when introduced to tea by a trader, he stayed up all night making tea and drinking it.
The next morning they found him drowned in his own teepee.......
I sure hope you shared those three plates of scones with Baer. Don't be such a pig, or you'll start attracting flies like the pigs at the convention grounds and we'll all be trying to tie them up in hair we pluck off of freespirit's head while watching the debate.....
CLIMB ON AND HANG ON FOLKS, THE GREAT DEBATE TRAIN IS ABOUT TO TAKE OFF!!!!!!

i just violated the first rule. i confess. i am sorry. it won't happen again. they hadn't started yet anyway, and someone had to do it.... they cant close the thread and set a password and let everyone read it.... i don't think... but beware, this regime is not fooling around.... we can't really make the option of being kind enough to not interrupt when we know that if all the main members were to start interrupting, nothing would be done. but if a guest troll has a little message board fun here, the weirdos that have not lived in the free for all reality of the internet yet would intervene, and like the "late" MSN gaming zone rooms, because of the +Plus Members, would ruin it for all of the rest of us.
Yeah, As you can see by the look on my face, it was quite the rush. Made riding my Honda at 100mph feel like nothing at all.
Took a few moments to realize she'd unplugged it...... Pretty embarrassing to say the least. Especially the dizzy part after climbing off. Then while hanging onto what I thought was my wife to get my balance back, that stupid kid took advantage of it by running up and kicking me in the Knee.
Oh Scott , Scott, Scott what are we going to do with you? (saying as I am shaking my head) You're lucky that boy's mommy was not a member of a Hell's Angel's motorcycle clan. She probably would have 'cleaned your clock."
Oh by the way if YOU had told ME to get MY FAT BUTT outta the way, I probably would have called you worse than scooter boy
I learned long ago, that if I am going to pick a fight and call people names, I am better off to pick on someone who weighs under a 100 lbs, and is really short.
I never figured that kid would be so tough!!! Learned a real lesson from him. Better to quickly latch a zapper dog training collar on him like I did with my kid when he stopped by. Works pretty good!!!
Don't know where he came up with that goofy look....Must have been his mom..
Zorro: I would like to know how you like your tea or coffee so I can have it prepared.
I just checked the rules before I posted, and I interpreted them to mean I can't post on this thread about the debate topic. I hope that's correct because I think it's very important that you know I need my coffee very strong, with cream
No guilt in life, no fear in death— This is the pow'r of Christ in me; From life's first cry to final breath, Jesus commands my destiny. No pow'r of hell, no scheme of man, Can ever pluck me from His hand; Till He returns or calls me home— Here in the pow'r of Christ I'll stand.

I think Zorro should have been the first poster; he seems to be more organized, ready, and willing.
Busboys have to be on the ball, too. High-heeled boots won't work. You'll have to wear flat-bottomed, soft, anti-skid soles. And don't be eating off cleared plates; not even in the kitchen. It gives this establishment a bad reputation. People will think we hire gypsies.
People may tip you but do not accept tips placed between your clothing and skin. This is not a risque establishment. Tips are best left on the table.
Where did the waitress go . . . . ? I need to talk to her, too.
