People keep rebuilding this thing. It's a mistake. If you tag all content as for or against something, it helps with sorting out genuinely binary balance-of-considerations issues, but almost nothing that's actually discussed, or that is actually worth discussing, fits this format. The most valuable content either clarifies, or pulls the rope sideways, or makes the original question moot. These can't fit in the template of an argument-structuring website, so argument-structuring websites don't get this content, so they aren't worth reading or participating in.

Have you seen that you can do multi theses debates and thus evaluate non-binary issues?

Here is an example by a user: https://www.kialo.com/stand-or-kneel-2995/2995.0/2995.0

We allow for comments, on claims as an additional way of interacting, but we are always happy to learn more.
