Didn't someone already make a social group for this?I've got a challenge for those here at the DP.
In 99% of my posts I try very hard to not even mention a party when I respond to <insert political topic post here>. And I would dare anyone to go through my past posts and prove this wrong.
In alot of the posts around here you can see the various sides always commenting, blaming, flaming (when possible), and thinly making derogatory remarks against the opposite side.
So, here's a challenge to everyone that is designed to promote a new form of debating at DP. That of Debating from a neutral standpoint in regards to a political party standpoint.
Do not mention, type, hint anything about ANY party. Just discuss the topic. Its fine if a website that you link to mentions a political party. But don't let yourself mention a political party. Lets give this a try for one week and lets see how interesting the discussions REALLY get. (note that if a thread is SPECIFICALLY about a party then its ok to mention the party..just try and keep it as neutral as possible though. )
Now I'm making this into a poll so that we can use it as a sort of "sign up sheet". If you want to try it out just hit "agree". Don't want to? Just ignore the poll or hit "disagree". The poll will be open to the public so that we can all keep an eye on each other.
