Check this place out: www.kialo.com The platform is feature complete, but still being worked on to flesh it out.
It’s like an awesome discussion/debating platform that may be excellent to host many programming debates. One strong strength is that it prevents duplication of individual pros and cons with a similarity engine. One thing that stays a problem in forum discussions is that ideas are often rehashed since the original posts don’t have enough visibility.
Would be great to see how well it works by actually doing an RFC or other language ideology discussion in it. If it works as well as promised, that would be very good indeed.
