Structured debate with a clean website and format. Arguments are easily sorted into pros and cons.
Most arguments aren't binary like the site wants. Moderators can be heavily biased. Many topics require approval to post any topic.
If you want a nice place to quickly scrub over an issue and grab some pros and cons, Kialo is a good place. Unfortunately, the restrictions that plague interacting with the site can be detrimental. For instance, a topic on PETA was composed mostly of bunk science, but posting factual, supported evidence was rejected by the moderator before it was made available to view by others for various reasons.
It's a neat idea, and the internet is in dire need of a platform that enforces some form of stricter moderation for nicer debate and discussion. However, with the strict level of control Kialo forces among its users, and potential bias that's been shown in certain topics from anonymous moderation, I can't recommend it to the wider internet at this moment.Racecar palindrome has used this product for one month.

Verrrry dry and borrrrrring.
I gave Kialo a good try for several days. Yuuuuk!
No thanks! Definitely not for me. I don't think I'm sophisticated
