I don't have a problem with that. There are already threads throughout the Watch where just one person talks about something. But it's more likely that people with similar views will discuss those views. The point is that your willingness to deal with opposing views is not a prerequisite to posting in the Close. Most of us seem to enjoy a good debate, but that doesn't mean it's a requirement.

Anybody is free to start a debate thread about a 1 thread. Maybe the creator of the 1 thread will join in. It's fun, and it's good to hear opposing views. And they'll still have the 1 thread, where the original idea can be more deeply explored than it can be in a debate. I seriously doubt we'll find ourselves buried in 1 threads and debate threads about them.

Good, Sarge. Smile
Though "isn't that a blog?" sure made me laugh!

I think being allowed "1" threads is really honoring, actually.
Thank you Fist. Hopefully I won't dishonor your efforts. *deep breath*

It's not required. If you don't feel the need for such a thread, you don't have to start one.

However, if someone else wants to express or discuss their worldview, but doesn't want to debate it, they can.

I'm wracking my brain trying to understand why anyone would have a problem with this idea.


The fact that your brain will not allow to see the problem is the cause for your wracking. That, and not the other way around, is the proper order of things. Reality is diverse, not uniform. There may be fractal order in people as there is in large scale structures, but that does not mean forced local homogeneity is a natural thing. It is not, hence the problem for people whose concept of society is more natural and less constructed. I'd venture right versus left.
