I think, the differences are clear, aren't they?SarathW wrote:We have to clarify the difference of debating, arguing and investigation.
I think we should debate or argue for the purpose of investigation and clarification.
verb (used without object), argued, arguing.
to present reasons for or against a thing:
He argued in favor of capital punishment.
to contend in oral disagreement; dispute:
The senator argued with the president about the new tax bill.
Debate is contention in argument; strife, dissension, quarrelling, controversy; especially a formal discussion of subjects before a public assembly or legislature, in Parliament or in any deliberative assembly. Debate is a method of formally presenting an argument in a disciplined manner.
the action of investigating something or someone; formal or systematic examination or research.

So, please clearyfy: what do you want to express with this post? Do you refer to my suggestion of different subforms for either investigation or debate?
Or what are you refering to exactly?
