You can't expect it's initial momentum to carry forever, but eventually activity will start picking up speed again as more and more people discover this site.

As with any new web site, there will be initial interest that fades away.

While this site is designed to encourage debate, there are some inherent flaws that will inhibit continued growth:

1. The prospective choices in a debate are often poorly worded.

2. Voting is not linked to arguments.

3. Nonsensical "debates" are added to boost personal "scores".

What is preventing someone from creating 10 screen names and voting themselves a winner in every debate?

I guess I'm cynical after being in many chat rooms and forums.

A little novelty wore off, and some of the initial topics that were on people's minds wore out, but I find that the competitive section is picking up if anything. Besides, in emails with the site's developer, there are great improvements on the horizon. The site is developing faster than most other sites I have been a member of, with improvements every other day. Once the member base grows, there will be a perpetual supply of new topics to debate on.

I highly doubt that would come into play? Who cares about statistics so much that they essentially have to cheat themselves to victory?

Uh.. having a life for one, and not being a pathetic loser.
