Poll question: What is your favorite form of discussion?
The word "discussion" means "consideration of a subject by a group" or "a formal discourse on a topic," yet we are all aware that this can come in many forms. Some prefer a genteel exposition while others find a heated debate that forces moderator interaction is more to their taste.

Which of the following is your favored form of discussion?
