Debating on the internet is a horrible idea. Whoever was dumb enough to create /debate/ shouldn't be trusted with moderating it.

Off the top of my head... On the internet there's no time limit, which means that a debate can keep going virtually forever, until at least one of the participants gives up. The fact that you can't look the other person in the eyes and have to rely on text to communicate means that you're simultaneously more inclined to use harsh words and to misinterpret his words as harsher than he meant them to be (the same is true for your opponent).

I agree. Debates are really hard online, especially with Google and easily conflicting sources.

Not the guy you're replying to, but internet debates that rely completely on text typed quickly is that you lose tone, inflection, etc.

One advantage is that it's almost impossible to interrupt people on the internet, something I have trouble with IRL.
