Thank Jab for the[B] Debate Rules:

1) Post in your team's color, in order to identify the stance you are debating from. This helps identify who is who. [I]Teams are assigned by the opening Moderator, and you will not always be put on the team you personally believe in. This is sometimes accidental, and sometimes intentional, either way the purpose of debating in this fashion is to allow you to grow as a person and learn what information is out there. In some cases you may learn facts which change your stance, in others you may learn information which affirms your stance, in either case you will be more informed about those who have an opposite stance.

2) If you are not listed on a team and wish to join the debate, please see [URL=http://www.gamepoliticsforums.com/showthread.php?t=2928]The Debate Thread Revived[/URL] for how to join. (PM a mod.) If you are not listed as being on a debate team your post will be deleted, until you officially join and are assigned a team.

3) The Opening Moderator and any Moderator who does not choose to debate will only participate with informational posts, and the enforcement of debate rules. If a moderator chooses to debate, he/she will be assigned a team by the opening moderator. [/B][COLOR=DarkOrchid](Since we only have 6 people so far, in this case, I will partner up with Theory?. I will participate, but only to help Theory? in his case. Sound fair? Yeah, I know it's not... but neither is life.

4) There will be strict enforcement of the insult & threatening rules in the Debate thread. The debate is about the topic not individuals.

5) A moderator will close a debate thread when: It is reasonably apparent that the debate has become completely one sided; the debate becomes a flame war; participation in the thread drops for several days on end; a moderator deems that the teams are re-hashing the same arguments. At the time of closing the closing moderator may or may not decide to post a closing statement.

6) The Moderators may add or change these rules if deemed necessary. Changes will be posted in the opening post, and announced in the thread. Most of the time changes will only be made between debates.[/B]


This week's debate is on whether Linux should be taught in public schools. While the Mac was once popular in schools, Windows has been so common that in many cases is expected to be the main OS platform. However, with the rising popularity of Linux, there is much discussion as to why it should be the top platform of choice.


So, in a nutshell, the debate topic is:

[SIZE=4] "Should Linux be taught in public schools alongside Mac and Windows?"[/SIZE]

This weeks participants are:
Brown[/COLOR] will support Linux

[COLOR=Blue]Blue Team[/COLOR] will be supporting Windows
Green Team[/COLOR] will support Mac

[COLOR=DarkRed]Brown Team[/COLOR]:

[COLOR=Blue]Blue Team[/COLOR]
[COLOR=Green]Green Team[/COLOR][/COLOR]
