Debate requires rules to be followed, but also for rules to be made properly and a universal agreement that there be a single objective. But the rulemakers haven't foreseen what is necessary for proper debate because it hasn't been recognized how much control would be necessary on this particular forum. The other forums don't have such a spiritual topic as this one and are GENERIC (non-partisan), but the purpose/objective of this forum is (or should be) to cause the destruction of the traditional/institutional teachings of Christianity (to be unecessarily polite about it, make them obsolete, Hebrews 8:13).
The rules were made assuming that all participants would:
1) have the motive of engaging in a productive conversation leading to logical conclusions and would show restraint using a minimum of emotion so as not to distract from the issue at hand (avoiding attitude).
2) understand the tendency of others to take personally any disagreement and therefore TAKE CARE not to express their rebuttal with emotionally charged words or hasty conclusions by simply commenting (reason) instead of criticizing and causing self-consciousness so the other person feels compelled to retaliate (taken offensively).
3) not alienate each other, but welcome each other's views and differences.
