So who is the best debater on Mal?
List them and then we choose 10 for the poll.

Based on knowledge,wisdom,charm,language control etc.
We should also create separate list for funny users and trolls too 😝

I list @traed and @deg and @kuma

I second nominating traed and deg.

If we hold a poll on who drops the most f-bombs, I might have a chance, my debating heydays are long gone :D

Deg? Wtf lol. Deg is a super nice and chill dude, but argument is not his forte. Especially if "language control" is one of your criteria.

Of all the semi-active people Katsucats wins easily, although his arguments do tend to get a bit too abstract and maybe even obscure at times.

Great, three of them should open MAL's News Podcast (YT channel)

- @traed (will be an anchor)
- @deg (news digger)
- @kuma (well, he just gonna make some background noise(or music) with his kitchen equipment)

Don't take that statement seriously, just nominate them yourself.

Why don't we ask the mods 😝

Reward could be the honorary title of MAL's Debate King.
We should also have monthly ratings for users based on so and so criteria. That could bring life to the fora.

Titles like Debate queen, Troll prince, Humorous wanderer etc

hehe 😝

For that to happen you need at least 10 proposers. You get one from me. 9 more to go. BTW seems like @traed and @deg are leading by country mile.

Idk man, I usually don't read debates unless they involve people I am interested in. Is being good at debates even that much of a desirable trait on the MAL forums? I feel like when I do read a few debates online people are just trying to win without learning anything.

It's like this everywhere on the internet, there is almost never anything to be accomplished from debating/arguing about things online, most people are drones and if they want to think orange man bad or 2+2=5 or whatever they will regardless of what argument is presented to them

I don't do this btw cause it's a waste of time but I see it everywhere

The problem with choosing 'the best debater' is that if you give rewards out to the winners people are incentivized to just argue for the sake of winning rather than actually coming to a compromise and understanding their opposition. I do think it cheapens debates in general.

Of course, I don't mind threads like these where we're just ranking people for fun though. My criticism is mostly aimed at actual debating competitions.

traed gets my vote btw.

Are we talking currently active users or even those from some time ago?

Traed and deg are good, but I think there are more debaters: a few of them posted already (Nyu, Viking and zzzeally).

EDIT: didn't fully read the OP. We compile the list--still need to know if there are limitations.

Less active accounts could also be considered but

01 last activity shouldn't exceed a month.
02 last activity should involve sizeable number of posts.

Accounts like introvert turtle and redkeys can't be counted.

Yeah, people just talk past each other. It ends up making them both look silly.

Traed's responses are generally very fact-based and concise enough for most people to not lose interest halfway through so I can see why many nominated him. But I'd say Railey and Josh overall make more compelling arguments, so yeah those two.

I'd disqualify kuma. Once I had an argument with @Manaban (whom I grown to respect while still disagree), and while unaddressed he just started to spout insults, because he disaggreed me and said he argued enough about the topic with other people who were on the same side as I.

Also @zombie_pegasus is respectful and often makes good points. Though maybe sometimes he goes too far with the devil's advocate role, but sometimes I do too.

yea exactly, sometimes it's like that and sometimes it's really obvious when one person is right and it's just sad watching them struggle to try and explain why to morons. either way these "arguments/debates" don't accomplish anything. And also when I say "waste of time" there are obviously ways I and everyone else waste time but you can do something like playing video games that's a waste of time but you at least get something out of it. I can't see how people gain anything from the verbal equivalent of standing on opposite sides of a fence running around in circles

yea maybe if u consider logical fallacies, historical revisionism, and citing fringe sources to be the marks of a good debater.

best ones i can remember are josh and traed. dishonorable mentions to lupadim and immahnoob.
