You know, I wouldn't be making such fun of the Great Canadian Debate if those folks got off their posteriors and started publishing something. But it's been over a month now, and I'm sure it's terribly impressive that you have your forums, and your categories, and your archives, and your moderators, and your user registrations, and your search window, and various doo-dads and gee-gaws and all, but what you don't have yet is any actual debates.
As Red Tory comments back here:
I don't know what the hold-up is with this silly debate. I wrote my piece ages ago (took all of about 15 minutes) and sent it to Olaf. I haven't heard anything back yet. Whatever... Evans is so dead in the water on this one. Maybe I'll just publish it anyway and let them go about their business. My argument is completely irrefutable, so it's kind of a done deal, but it would be somewhat amusing I guess to see what Richard comes up with.
You might as well publish your piece, RT, because that first topic is an eye-rolling no-brainer:
Must a person be in favour of the Afghan war in order to "support our troops"?
And the answer is "no." See how easy that was? So let's get this show on the road, otherwise, I'll have to keep making fun of Adam Daifallah and, Lord knows, even that has limited entertainment value.
I just hope Richard "Cock" Evans didn't get a copy of Red's submission during this waiting period.
I think I'll just get on with things then and probably break all of their rules in the process.
Please do. This has been dragged out long enough. If they can't get their shit together enough to start publishing stuff more than a month after they created the site, they really should find another line of work. Perferably something that doesn't require a functioning brain stem.
I suspect this bunch couldn't manage their way out of a wet paper bag or organize a grass hockey team from what's been demonstrated thus far. It's time to get the ball rolling.
Funny that you would spend so much time and effort denigrating the entire idea from the outset, and yet be the most impatient to have it all happen.

You do realize that it isn't the organizers full time job, yes? It's being done with spare time during a busy season relying on the effort, punctuality and goodwill of 60 some odd people. You understand. But we're absolutely loving your enthusiasm!
Olaf, please understand that it's hard to derive new snark, from no new debates.
