This forum is for the community to have what the staff feel are perpetual debates
This section is a collection of popular and thus recurring discussions. We recognize the importance and general interest in these discussions and prefer to keep similar conversations in one place. This is analogous to other forums categories such as "General Help", but here the topics are somewhat fluid in that they may change over time as their popularity waxes and wanes.
Threads are relocated to this section either by request (when a thread is reported by the community) and/or at the discretion of the staff.
