Some of the recent sparring has given me an idea. There’s just enough diversity here that it might prove interesting. I’m thinking that it might be amusing if I were to pose a question of the week challenging the precepts of a given ideology or position, then only allow those who subscribe to said position to answer it in the comments that day. The following day, I would post a response which everyone could then pile onto as they wished.
A) does this sound amusing?
B) if so, what day of the week should we do it? Not Mondays or Tuesdays, I think, since that’s filled up with responses to the column. Weekends tend to be slower, which is both good and bad.
Anyhow, let me know what you all think. We can always try it out and then bag it if it gets too repetitive or acrimonious. And do please note that it is generally considered bad form to call your host a liar, a hellspawn or a Green Bay Packers fan.
