This would work better if you guys started saying something. Short questions and shorter answers do not accomplish anything. Most debates here involve long posts, containing well thought out statements. Points are made, ideas put forth, thoughts expressed. You know, stuff like that. It might be wise to agree to start over and decide who is going to go first. And whoever that is, they would be best served by saying something instead of merely posting links. Those of us occasionally checking the thread have yet to see anything pertinent to our lives.
Also, most debates here don't last long because few are in the mood to put effort into such things. Which is what I am detecting here. If either of you wish to let this drift off into the ether, let me know so I won't have to occasionally check for progress.
