For me personally, I don't like to participate in debate but I really like to listen to it. I enjoyed hearing the affirmative and negative sides presenting their views about the topic. It is interesting. Sometimes,it makes me feel bad when the side I favored is defeated. what about you? do you like to participate in debate or just want to listen to it or maybe you don't like it at all? Well, nice to hear you.

hello, :D, well, like you I don't like also debate, but I also like to listened to them. It's really enjoying and also I get some knowledge from both sides and really interesting to know which sides will I agree or what are the things I may or may not agree. I agree, it's very captivating watching or listening to a debate. But I really don't like to participate, I don't think I am good in depending my opinions, especially in a very aggressive opponents. lol.

debate - i love to watch people debating as i find it fun and interesting for me to learn a lot whether it is pro or con
Hello dear Bebs. I love to watch and listen to people debate whether it is pro or con as I think that it is interesting and I can learn a lot from their debate, but I don't want to participate in debate because I am not good at debating at all. To just watch and listen is good enough for me. I appreciate your discussion, Bebs.

Yes, I do participate in debate if the discussion is being done politely and intelligently. It should be a debate where the participants respect each other despite differences in opinions. I also participate only on issues I really know and have extensive knowledge and on issues I feel I could really manage to speak and stand at my best. One thing that I always remember when debating is to always keep my wisdom, stand for whatever is right no matter what and to maintain my poise in whatever circumstances. When I feel that other party is not getting sensible anymore,,, I cut the debate short by politely begging off for reasons I feel the debate is no longer a healthy one and hence not worth my precious while.

I enjoy debating as long as it doesn't lead into an arguement. I understand people all have different opinions and you can learn something by listening to what they have to say, even if you don't agree with them

I would say that I enjoy a light debate. In terms of when my brother and I have differing opinions on a subject and just banter back and forth. No hard feelings. As for watching debate. Not my style.

I only like debating here in forums since I could express my side. I haven't experience this but of course only in school and yet that is too formal. I like listening to the debates too and there was a time that there was an episode or a show like this but I don't know what happened that is why I can't see it anymore. Maybe I think it is now good to have a debate show like that so that we can see and learn something from affirmative to negative sides too. I don't know if I had this confident to join the debate in person but in this forum of course I can do so. It is a different feeling for having debate in forum and in person.
