Why is there no philosophy subject? Why can people cheat on whole tests on here but not discuss reality and existence?

    People don't or at least shouldn't cheat. Most people don't tell people the answers directly, they try to help them.

    In terms of philosophy, the subjects were generally chosen based on the amount of interest - subjects like philosophy never gained many users. Also given the nature of philosophy it is likely to spark many unfriendly debates, no matter the intentions, so all in all it would probably be a bad idea. Though that is just my opinion. If you really want a philosophy group you could attempt to petition for one (ie. get as many people as you can to post in here that they want a philosophy group - but please don't spam people asking for one).

    You would not have a philosophy subjects because you want to avoid "unfriendly debates"? interesting.

    This has been asked A LOT.. Maybe they should just make one and make people happy.

    By 'unfriendly debates' I essentially meant people swearing at each other. I do think proper debates are a good thing but its possible moderating such a subject would be a nightmare. But no less, that is my opinion, feel free to petition to get the subject and see what the admins say :)
