When others and myself criticize OWS on this forum, our concerns are generally met with two types of replies 1) those who disagree and call us trolls or paid government agents, 2) those who agree. Unfortunately, both these types of replies lead to a dead end. Our criticism is very rarely met with serious and properly formed counter arguments which can lead to interesting discussions and new findings. This makes it very hard to "go deep" and learn something new.
I'm looking for a site where I can find OWS intellectuals ready to debate in proper fashion. I know there are protesters who are thinkers and who are willing to debate seriously instead of resorting to ad hominem and appeal to motive logical fallacies. Occupy was started by scholars after all; I'm thinking of David Graeber and the like. A forum without conspiracy theorists and spammers would also be a big plus. I'm not afraid of forum rules and proper moderation of said rules.
Can anyone provide a link to such a forum? If you've been on one, can you give a brief synopsis of how it was and how it differed from this site?
Note: I'm open to forums in French, Indonesian, and English.
