There are 5 ways you can go with a debate on internet
 
1. You speak your heart, most of the times since we pretty much hail from the same mentality, then you are going to get a lot of wah-wah's and then there is no debate
2. You put in a one-liner in there, kind of shoot and run
3. You spam like crazy b'cos you ain't got no clue what that topic means and why let others write essay's of positions on the topic
4. You get offended by the topic and dont want anyone to have a debate on the topic
5. You know in your heart what position you like, and just for the heck of it, pick up a position completely opposite of that and drive the folks in #1, #2 and #4 absolutely nuts. Be careful though a lot of folks are going to come out of the woodworks and start giving you gali's, get personal, act morally superior, report you to the moderators, etc etc. Get those cute little yellow boxes if you do this on IF
 
Tried pretty much all except #4(there are people by buckets doing that alreadyWink). #5 is the most fun, you should try it. People really put in the effort to research you as a personLOL and start pointing out your positions in various debates. Again this is not trolling, sometimes when you are being the Devil's Advocate you see your personal opinion and its flaws more clearly than just doing a bhajan of your opinion.

apart from the points:  trolling, flaming etc, which have been discussed above, here are some more internet debate tactics: Wink

1) Flamebaiting: (to say something intentionally to provoke an angry response)


(4 images below are linked from random sources after googling)





2) LOL wut:  (to dismiss an argument by saying "lol wut"):


3) Facepalm (when nothing else works)



4) And then there is always the fail pic
