Just for the record, its very difficult to discuss anything with anyone here when two people are able to monopolize the space so easily. I don't mean to be rude, but if the two of you are going to talk only to each other and require fast turn around times to make your points, there are other internet technologies readily available that might suit your purposes better. Just a suggestion.
McSpotlight: Daddio, they are debating; this is a Debating Room; as such, they're heartily welcome to post here. This is a personal thing, but I'd rather moderate 30 posts and counterposts by them - than read 1 post by some disgruntled McD's customer who thinks we're the official complaints line.
Mea culpa, also; the fast turn around times are probably a corollary of the fact that I spend my entire day online and keep a regular eye on the DR; if I went back to moderating all of the messages in one big lump, there'd probably be fewer short posts.
