__**DEBATE NIGHT**__

**Topic**: *Healthcare*
**Date**: *Fri, October 5th*
**Time**: *8PM EST*

**Questions**
```
-Should healthcare become universal, despite tax payers and insurance payers having to pay more money?
-Should there be a push towards medicine and certain fields of medical study on college students to meet the demand of healthcare?
-How should the healthcare industry push towards being a government-independent commodity, if universal healthcare isn't attainable?
-Do citizens deserve free or reduced-pay healthcare if it means to have a stronger and healthier workforce and community?
-Should hospitals and private-care practitioners have a flat fee dependent on the individual's annual salary, instead of the cost of procedure (drugs, check-ups, surgeries, ect)
```

**Time**: *8PM EST*

**Questions**
```
-The U.S. has several federal and state government assistance programs, including subsidized housing, SSI, food stamps/EBT, Medicare/Medicaid, and more. Should any of these be reformed, stay the same, or be done away with entirely? Should new programs be added?
-With Social Security expected to become insolvent in the year 2034, what changes should be made to extend the life of the program? Or should it be replaced with a new program?
-Between Welfare, Medicare/Medicaid, and government pensions (including Social Security) amounting to 62% of Federal Budget spending, what should be done to lower this percentage?
-What should be done to help prevent exploitation/fraud in state and federal government assistance programs?
-What requirements should there be to receive these government benefits? Should the current ones remain or should they be changed?
```

@everyone Discord has changed their Terms of Service!

Unfortunately, this change comes with a **revocation of your legal rights**. Discord has revoked your right to sue (you must go through an arbitrator) and to congregate as a class action lawsuit.

Luckily, there is an opt-out for the clause, in which **you must email [email protected]**, but **you must do it within 30 days** or you can no longer opt-out.

__**YOU CANNOT DELETE OR DEACTIVATE YOUR ACCOUNT TO OPT-OUT OF THE ARBITRATION CLAUSE**__

You can see the added clauses for yourself here: <https://gist.github.com/Rapptz/c93697c9d59ec2f0d8071b7d0e907632>

I will attempt to answer some common questions.

**Is this enforceable?**

In the United States, **yes**. This was decided by the Supreme Court in 2011. See <https://gc.gy/7538114>

In Europe, **no**. There are many clauses, a relevant one is Article 77 of the GDPR ("Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority").

**Why does this matter?**

Without the ability to congregate for a class action lawsuit, if Discord ever leaks your data or does something catastrophically bad to a large portion of the population you have no way to representatively sue together without each of you individually suing via the arbitrator.

Please see the following article: <https://gc.gy/7538130>

Essentially:

1. Your right to file a complaint in the court of law is removed.
2. The arbitration system tends to heavily favour the company rather than the consumer.
3. Since your right to pool similar complaints together is taken away, the amount of damage you can do to a company that has wronged you significantly is limited to those who are willing to arbitrate.


**What you need to do to opt-out**
Email `[email protected]` from the email associated with your account, with the following (no special formatting required):
Subject: Opt-out from the arbitration clause
Content: I'd like to opt-out from your arbitration clause. user#0000

2018-10-18 05:19:27 UTC  

This will take you one minute and will preserve your right to sue or participate in a class action against Discord

2018-10-18 22:49:00 UTC  

Augustus is back up! Sorry for the down time. You can now add roles to your profile again.

2018-10-19 22:44:07 UTC  

Discord has released a statement regarding the arbitration clause
https://blog.discordapp.com/terms-of-service-feedback-and-changes-c58a530c7693

Two things they mentioned in the article are:
- No user will be penalized in anyway for opting out
- Opt-out period has extended from 30 to 90 days
