I just don't get it why do they do it (by the way whoever made this site has gotta make a chatroom instead of a message board and tell me how to get there cause this takes too long)?
McSpotlight: If you want to set up an irc channel, feel free. In my experience, however, debating rooms such as this generate a better quality of debate than do irc channels, as each poster has time to consider their responses. Of course, this doesn't mean that people always do...
It's also far easier to flood a debate on irc with useless crap. A moderated forum, such as this one, is filtered through our moderators - impartial for the purpose of the debate. Obviously, we'd be able to update it more frequently if we weren't all rather overworked volunteers, but such is life.
