Just an idea :)
I've seen this type of debate section on other forums... Regular members don't post threads to it, but if an individual thread gets a bit heated or is on a potentially controversial topic (as an example, the pit bull thread over in the betta fish section comes to mind), it is moved by a mod to the controversial section where people can debate to their heart's content and the general population doesn't have to worry about accidentally stumbling into a heated debate. It seems to work fairly well where I've seen it, but I'm admittedly not active in those forums.
