First of all - I personally feel gratitude to the mods - Debate.org used to be a prime example of everything a website about debating should be, but a lack of moderation has made the once great site nothing but a shell of its former self. It is the moderation that keeps DebateArt.com from joining Debate.org in its fate. It has also come to my attention that many people either find the mod team incompetent with their job or inherently biased.
First things first - obviously.
Every single person is biased, this isn't something people don't know, it isn't something new. No judges in the court of law aren't biased; however, as long as you recognize those biases you can mitigate them.
For example: Ragnar voted on a debate of mine recently; On average, a bear would beat a gorilla in a fight. Despite perferring my argument with my sources he did not award me any points to me for my sources. Why? Because even if he didn't buy Intelligence's argument, he recognized that his sources did provide impact for his arguments! That's a prime example of: recognizing bias in yourself, acknowledging it, and making a decision despite it. Judges do it all the time.
That is what the mods mean by objective. The fact that this has to be explained to a bunch of people this intelligent is sad.
Maybe I'm completely wrong though! Maybe other people think they could do better? Make your arguments - btw - this isn't trying to call the mods out, more thank them, and acknowledge the controversey happening and trying to open a more topical discussion forum for better orginization.
