ANNOUNCER: "And tonight we have a debate on the issue of a messaging system on WtW. Advocating for said system we have A. Advocate. Opposing, we have O. Opposition.
These two speakers will now debate this question: Should WtW have a personal messaging system on their website?
Ladies and gentleman, I present to you A. Advocate who will open this debate."
ADVOCATE: "Thank you very much. I am in full favor of a messaging system on WtW. It will make personal communications between writers much easier and allow for friendly chats about pieces. It will help bring writers together and help them give each other feedback through better relationships. It will be a great, great improvement on the site and make it much more like other social media as well."
ANNOUNCER: "Thank you, Advocate. Now we have Opposition, which will now present their case against a messaging system."
OPPOSITION: "Good evening, everybody. I obviously oppose the idea of a messaging system on WtW. These are reasons:
It is unnecessary. Using the comments, or a review, two or more people can easily communicate.
It will inevitably take away from the WtW website by making it a spot where young writers simply come to hang out and chit-chat instead of reviewing the work of other writers or writing pieces of their own.
It is also less social than the current commenting system; only two people can talk at a time. Three or more can have a conversation through comments.
Not having a messaging system is safer. Through a messaging system, criminals pretending to be honest members of this site might be able to obtain information such as email, home address, phone numbers, or other information they can use in harmful ways.
In conclusion, while a messaging system might make it easier for some of us to communicate, it is not necessary or a good idea to have. Thank you."
ANNOUNCER: "That's it for now, ladies and gentlemen, there will be more of the debate posted later, however you may get involved in it yourself by posting a comment below."
