Problems will arise in TLR, and you will feel offended. That is the nature of debate, and it is unavoidable. When you feel uncomfortable about something that is said, contact a moderator for suggestions or guidance on how to resolve the problem. I feel that TLR will be a much better place if there is as little moderation as possible. However, if the problem is a blatant infrigement of TLR/Amdmb/PcPerspective rules, either report the post, PM me, Vihsadas, or Smoked Trout, and we will attempt to resolve it for you.
I urge all beginners to READ the debates and conversations happening in TLR, before you jump in. There is alot to be learned from the more skilled members of TLR. Also, the link below will give you better understanding of how to formulate a well thought out argument. It's good practice to try and find and identify those tactics and fallacies listed in the link, as you read threads in TLR.
TLR is NOT a professional debating forum. Therefore, when you come to TLR, having already learned the "craft of the argument", it can be frustrating. I ask you to have patience, and to guide others in learning the value of a well thoughout argument.
TLR doesn't always get the exposure that it deserves since it's a subforum. That's why it's good to have some free advertisement! If you meet the requirements below, feel free to join the TLR bullfrogs, our own TLR member group.
