Suppose that, just as an illustration, I challenged Tris to single combat on the merits of religion and he picked up the gauntlet. Would we be allowed to go head-to-head in a GD thread set aside for that purpose, with no outside commentary allowed?
This is just something I’ve always wondered about, and I finally got around to asking. I don’t actually want to challenge Tris (or anyone else) to debate, but it sounds like it’d be a fun thing for the board to try.
I can come up with a couple of points against such a thing, namely that the Dope (and fighting ignorance) has always been a community effort and that it’d make more work for the Mods. On the plus side, though, I think it would be fun for both the spectators and for those who agreed to participate.
So, have we ever tried such a thing here? If not, does it sound like something people might be interested in?
