Adminnemooseus still says "No" to having a "Peanut Gallery" right now
In the context of , I think it is impossible to isolate the "Great Debate" from the "Peanut Gallery". Are we to expect that neither Jazzns or Faith will read the topic?

Coming from the evolution side, and more specificly having a geology degree, I've had to supress my urges to comment on some of Jazzns statements. But, in the context of a "GD", it is not for other members to do such, but for Faith to do such.

Painful as it may be, I still strongly feel that the "PG" needs to wait until the "GD" is closed. After it is closed, then we can start the "post mortum" examination. I would certainly find it interesting, to later have a "The evolution side picks on Jazzns 'Great Debate' statements" topic.

The reactions of the audience are apparent to the debaters.

While a "real world" debate might have an audience, that audiences responses to statements would be limited to such as cheers and groans. They would not be shouting debate content up to the podiums.

Input of content in the "Peanut Gallery" would still be defacto input of content into the "Great Debate".

Would a "Cheers and Groans" peanut gallery topic be a useful thing? I don't think so.

All that said, Faith seems to now wish the "Great Debate" be terminated. Perhaps the post mortum is soon to come anyway.
