    Should HP relegate all questions regarding Religion to the Forums, rather than allowing them in Q&A?

    Questions about religion often require more detailed answers than what is provided in Q&A's 250 word limit. Also,  we also now have a handful of New Atheist's who are now deleting every single comment that is answered by "religionists," especially Christian believers. Would not a more even back and forth exchange be more suitable than a one-sided argument? Additionally, too many questions are meant to provoke, such as those which suggest that Atheist are more intelligent than Christians. Long story short, an intelligent exchange requires more serious thought and two (reasonable) sides.

    Sure that makes sense. It would provide more space to go into detail.

      Yes. Also, I don't think you can delete anyone there. You just have to "deal with it." However, you can send "flags" when the trolls get too out if hand.

    The solution would be to write a hub, not discussions.

      OK, however, you have asked questions about religion. Are you going to write hubs instead? In any event, all those who have asked have written hubs about religion. It hasn't resolved the Q&A thing.

    I don't see a point in changing it that much. If someone knows the person is just going to delete their answer then why would they want to answer? Not logical.
    2500 characters is enough to get across an answer. The follow up arguing could be eliminated by removing the commenting on answers like it use to be. Not sure why they ever added the commenting on answers since that encourages lengthy debates which is not what this section is for. So if we are going to debate in the Q and A, keeping it short is best.
    By removing the comment part that would keep conversations from being one sided. The Asker gets a chance to ask and the answerer gets to answer, then they have to move on.

      Annsalo, They may want to answer in order to counter a false supposition/question with facts. Secondly, the questioner can still delete the useful information and still maintain a 1-sided argument. The forums do not allow for this knee jerk reaction.
