When you’re browsing the web and you read or watch something that you want to remember as a source for your opinions, what do you do? You’d like to remember it and organize it somehow, but how can you do that so it’s separate from all the other bookmarks that you have? The answer is simple – post it to your Opinion Board on TheRationalDebate. This is now easier than ever: you can click a Rational button on your browser toolbar to post it directly to your Opinion Board. Get the Rational button here! Here’s an example of how it works:
A friend of mine posted an article to Twitter from The Economist, and while reading it I thought it was really good article that I will want to remember as a source for my opinion on vaccines. So, to add this article to my Opinion Board, I can simply click the Rational button on my browser toolbar:
Clicking the Rational button causes a window to appear right on the page:
Now I simply pick the Opinion Board I want to post the article to (or I can create a new board if I want), add my comments and click the ‘Add Post’ button and it’s done!
Once the post is created, I can either click the link to check out my Opinion Board, or simply close the window to go back to reading the article. Easy! The screenshots above show the Rational button in Chrome, but it’s also been tested with Internet Explorer 8+, Firefox, Safari, and Opera.
If you’re curious about seeing my Opinion Board on vaccines, check it out here. If you agree with me, sign in or sign up and repost my sources to your board to get started. If you disagree, I’ve yet to see any rational arguments against vaccinations, so let’s see your Opinion Board!
