    Yeah, but there's limitations to the fun that can be had in those places. Places like Youtube are fun to troll; there's little to no moderation there. But the people I debate with there are essentially know nothings. They'll usually make an uneducated comment about, say, genetics, I'll refute them, and then they'll simply not reply. There's no challenge there, and because of that I don't learn anything from debating them, my arguments aren't put to the test and therefore don't evolve or improve in any way. 4chan is only fun if you like talking to seven year olds. TA is heavily modded, and if you don't have gypsy heritage, you're on every moderator's watch list. And, again, the people there aren't very intelligent and therefore debates with them are neither fun nor edifying.

    I think the only antis who'd be drawn to a site like this would be the ones who actually felt they were up to the task of challenging us, which means they'd probably know something about history, genetics, philosophy etc. Maybe in a sustained debate (as opposed to the Youtube ones that always end in the other quitting once you demonstrate you're a lot smarter than they are) we'd get some valuable insights into the mentality and tactics of our enemies.

    Whether one needs a Ghetto for trolls anmdis question that only becomes relevant once one has decided to tolerate these people at all. I think most people here are trying to say they don't want trolls and Antis here. However IF they would be allowed, to have them in a limited area is certainly the better option then allowing them to trample on the hole corn field here.

    Ugh, I am not in favor of an opposing views forum. IMO its better to just ban the people who make statements that are too outrageous, and are obviously just trying to be annoying or play around. Looking at the opposing views forum can be quite exhausting and stressful, but I just can't help reading it. We shouldn't devote our time and effort to create a place where they will try to make us run around like chickens with our heads cut off when they create threads like "Am I aryan?" or "You guys are dumb asses."

    Besides, it ruins the feel of the forum. When I come there is a true sense of Germanic culture and intellectualism; I feel at home, special, and relaxed around people like me who mostly respect my point of view and I respect theirs. If you invite in all the wackos and trolls they will f*ck it up. Skadi doesn't need a change, I would rather have a bit of deadness than risk messing up what we already have. It's the weekend before spring break, perhaps people are doing things with their families and don't have a lot of time to post.

    Although I try to respect other people's ideas because I want others to respect mine, I have a hard time not being annoyed by the gay sympathizers and "libertarians" (call for the legalization of marijuana etc.) but that's just part of keeping Skadi a friendly and respectful environment.
