This isn't the first time this has happened, to me or to other posters here. I realize there's probably not much that can be done about it, but I wonder if further contributions to this site, on my part, are warranted? I had hoped that spending a long time researching philosophy on an academic level would have made me a good candidate for a good contributor to this SE, esp. considering my propensity to cite my sources (including by extracting relevant quotes). However, I'm not sure a lot of newcomers to this SE realize that we're not a debate forum, although to be fair, considering the topic (philosophy), open-endedness is harder to avoid even if we try hard to post in good faith. Or worse, some newer contributors seem to think that the only legitimate answers (and even questions) are answers (questions) that they are predisposed to accept in some sense.
I've tried to couch my answers in pluralistic "state of the dialectic" format by the by, since consensus/conclusiveness is not available in the "normal" way for philosophy. Should I try to be more dogmatic, if I continue to post here?
