Well fellow debaters this has been extremely late... but all three mods had school and exams. Not fun.

This week's subject is the Fifa Cup. And no it's not a 'who will win? France or Italy?' post either. Go France!

It's more about the Cup in general. Is it a great event that brings us all together or just an overrated tournament?

Is it a waste of time and money? Everyone gets so excited about it. In China there was a house fire, the woman that lived in the house grabbed her infant daughter and ran out. Her husband grabbed his television set and plugged it in at the nearest plug point so he could continue watching a game. In Africa there was an actual civil war (or something to that effect) that was put on hold so that both sides would watch. If we put that much time/energy/money into something else we could do a lot with a lot of the problems in the world. There is some connection between everyone at the Cup, we should be using it year round instead of just the few weeks that the Cup is on.

But it does bring everyone together, places like little Italy here in Toronto are excited and celebrating. The Cup proves that if we try we can all get along. The entire world cheers for their team and while it can get a bit violent when someone wins or loses there’s still that bond with all who watch and cheer with or against you, knowing that billions of people are watching one game and are all caught up in it, that it what the Cup's all about right?

Er, I seem to have given my own little argument for both points in there. Don't be afraid to jump in.

No this comm. isn't dead... the mods have just had problems with RL.

Anyway, the topic for this week has already been discussed a bit between me and holla666.

Does a person's physical appearance affect the way you choose to start a relationship with that person, if it does at all?

While we all like to think that we're not shallow the truth is that we all make snap decisions about someone. It's reflexive, the question is, do you let those decisions affect how you judge a person? Can you become friends with someone who first struck you as extremely ugly? Is it possible to fall in love with a person that you don't find attractive?

All right, I just wanted to remind you guys that when you're debating please put the 'side' you're on in the subject line.

For example, our most recent debate is Coke vs. Pepsi. When you're giving your arguments please state either 'Coke' or ‘Pepsi’ in the subject header so we know what you're arguing so we can disagree with you a lot faster.

Okay...since it looks like i'm the first mod up i'll post the first subject of the week. This weeks topic was brought to us by heron_advocate who last night heard my plea for help. So for being the first person to suggest something fo this comm., heron_advocate has the honor for having her topic being the first one in this comm.

Now without furthur ado, this weeks topic is:
COKE VS. PEPSI A simple quesiton which is still being argued over to this very day

Do you love coke? Do you hate it? Do you perfer Pepsi? Why? Why? WHY?

This folks, is what we want to know.

Let the debate begin =)

Okay it is currently...12:30 AM EST, and since we have a total of...7-8 members we (meaning Pallavi and I) have decided to hell with it and let the debating begin. Now since it's still pretty early, i have no clue what the topic is going to be tomorrow...er...today. So i leave that to you, dear members of this comm. Whoever comments first gets to choose the topic of the week for well...this week. Since this comm. is still new we'll only begin with one topic for now but we'll steadily increase the number of topics going on as new members join.

So again...first person to comment gets the honor of being the first person to pick a topic for a debate in confero

Mods, please check this and see who the first commenter is for i will probably still be asleep when someone comments.

And like my subject title says Let the games begin!

P.S: Please keep the bloodshed to a minimum seeing as this comm. is still new =)

Welcome everyone to the very first post of confero. Seeing as we don't have a lot of members right now we won't begin our debating until maybe...sunday or whenever we have more people.

Okay first things first: How This Comm. Is Going To Work
Well to make sure that this comm. is easy to use, we're going to have one post. That post is going to talk about that weeks topic. All debates should be made as comments in that post and please state which side your on in the subject bar.

If the discussion in that post gets too long, one of the mods will make another continuing post for that topic. All topics will be a one week free for all and each week there will be a new topic up. If you don't like the topic of the week, that's fine. There will be 2-4 topics going on at the same time each week -one of which will hopefully be interesting to you.

If you're still confused on how this is going to work, feel free to email me chibi_inu13 or Pallavi poetic_pixie_13 for any questions/concerns that you may have.

Again feel free to e-mail us any topic suggestions that you'd like this comm. to discuss. Your input is always welcomed =)
