    Usually, a debate has an opening statement and an opposing view, followed by a limited period of arguments from both sides. Then there's the "open" section, with questions and answers, and finally there is a count of the "Yays" and the "Nays".


    Would it be possible to see the results of the debates? I mean a simple count of the (participating) votes, or a simple "Well, you got that one right/wrong"?


    Sometimes it's quite frustrating wading through all the drivel and indeciferable technobabble to find out who has all the good points, and who won the argument.

    I think the one who win a discussion is the one learning something and is able to admit it.

    The one getting the last word/posting is by far not the winner.

    Do you agree...? 🙂
