*File marketplace becomes a betting rig for debate

 

We don't really intend to become debate bookies, as easy as that would be to do.

Side note: you could have made this a poll :classic_biggrin:

can you upgrade it into one?  also, what about exclusive demo debates videos for the site?  I'm sure people would love to watch a founder showdown.  you could also probably get some cool debates between other great figures in the community.  I want to watch repko versus ede warner

Upgraded. 

 

And the first of those between Chris and I is forthcoming as a demo of the site's features.

 

We can't promise that we can get anyone else to do anything, but that doesn't mean we won't try.

more pointedly what's your opinion on non-policy debaters use of this site?  Is it fine for ben shapiro or contra points to use?

It is ideal for this website to be available to people who show an interest in the activity and discussions that we have here regardless of debate affiliation. The idea is that traffic from people who may be interested in competing can lurk the website and ask questions if they weren't really aware of the activity before.

 

Those examples are interesting though and have given me pause outside of "everyone" idealism. I think Ben Shapiro is more a troll than a "non-debate debater." He would probably be treated (eventually banned) as such. The bigger problem with non-debate pop commentators showing up is attracting their fans, which can stand to be inflammatory. In that sense, I'm not too interested in celebs without a debate past joining. It's a seemingly arbitrary line to draw about which non-debate people can use the website. It could result in locking down the website with screening questions on registration, which would be unfortunate since that could turn away potential novices.

 

I know that's not really conclusive, I'm thinking out loud.

Eh I think he deals in trying to "own the libs" and operates with that mentality in everything he does, at least in his "debates." Pretty troll-y.

I don't think he's trolling liberals because we're not his target audience.

This stands to be an interesting T-"Troll" debate. 

Idt trolling needs to have your trolling target be your audience. In a lonely internet sense, trolls usually do it to entertain themselves. I think Shapiro is like a slightly less inflammatory Milo. He yours college campus to draw out liberal students, "troll," and farm video clips of "messing with that lib college student" to promote himself. And if it's not that, it's on Twitter. So, yeah, he doesnt troll his audience, he trolls libs to pander to his audience.

It's ok for an enterprising capuchin for me to use the site though right?
