Default Topics we’d like to see in the Serious Debates section

Think it’s safe to say that this section’s the deadest it’s been in time (if not an all-time low). What threads do people want to see more of in this section this year?

I think if people want to debate an issue, they’ll do so, threads like this seem a bit redundant because people won’t make threads on topics just bc someone voted it in a poll

Redway, I don't think this type of poll helps, S&D works well when people post spontaneous topics, the waters have also been muddied by the addition of the celebrity section, S&D was thriving before that but management knows best
