Instructions for the Discussion Board:

The forums will be closed at midnight on the day that your PRs are due. You must post before midnight!! You will lose 10% of the points for each day youpost late.
The points you receive will be based on the quality of the responses not on the quantity! Each IR should be long enough to fully answer the question(s).Your responses should demonstrate that you have thought about the issues and have well-reasoned arguments backed up with evidence.
For any materials that you quote directly make sure you use quotation marks and cite the source. Your PRs should engage your classmates in DEBATE (no personal attacks allowed!).
