Question Thread debates


If a thread is posted on the forums, is it subject to debate regardless of what the tag is, until / if it is locked?
Except in cases where it violates our terms, we make a best effort to allow discussions to evolve organically. The forums exist primarily for people to share their thoughts and opinions with each other after all, and, although they can sometimes become contentious, I'd consider debates a fairly integral part of open discussion.

With that said, we generally try to accommodate reasonable requests by the OP of a thread. If you feel a debate is undermining a discussion you started, get in touch and we can see about splitting the debate into its own thread or something.
