C: As amusing as ad hominen agruments may be, they nonetheless do little except divide two parties. Perhaps those who wish to snipe instead of argue would be more comfortable participating in the WWF instead of McSpotlight's Debating Room. Anyway, in the WWF, we then could also see your cool costumes.

Qx: It is ridiculous isn't it? I can sling mud as well as anybody else but in the end I could see this thread turn into a quagmire. Kinda like a Yugoslavia of the mind....

C: Perhaps, McSpotlight may want to include a debate section called "Argumentum Ad Hominum" for those who wish to trade insults, so that we may view such entries for our amusement, before entering into the legitimate debating rooms.

Qx: I know that would be interesting. There is the "Anything Else" section but I have a feeling that some people personalize capitalism and hold whatever ideas it may embody so dearly to their bosums that this section will always have some self-appointed pro-capitalist defenders. I guess they think this is their Kosovo and not ours to share.
