DebatePolitics.com misrepresents its banner that says civility is a must. DP does it knowingly.
DP is thereby a fraudulent website. Debate Politics solicits donations by members which creates a privileged class of posters. Moderators actively participate in posting to personally post to members Mods do not like. Mods in their posting engage in personal attacks against posters the Mods dislike and disapprove.
Mods actively take sides in debates to advocate the conservative and, most often, the rightwing point of view. I have witnessed and experienced this reality since I became an active posting member in 2014. The bias of the Mods to the extreme right includes the militarizing of the society, i.e., supporting and protecting the rightwing veterans of military service who post and who actively donate to the DP appeal for funds. The appeal for funds for DP appears continuously on the site's Index page.
There is a line bar showing the progress of the donations appeals; the bar in red and green appears continuously 24/7. I myself have had a constant and ongoing private contact with the Mods about this via Personal Messenger. This has been entirely futile, the reason being the Mods are set and fixed in their rightwing purposes, means, goals.
Because there has been no willingness to modify or change the DP website, I have come to Pissed Consumer to try to affect some change to the Debate Politics website and its discussion forums. If DP is incapable of modifying or improving its policies and practices, then internet consumers of politics and government would need to know that DebatePolitics dot com is a fraudulent website.
Reason of review: Bad quality.
Monetary Loss: $500.
Preferred solution: Prohibit trolls, political spamming and political stalking at the threads, off topic postings especially and in particular.
