I have a vague sense that it might be good to broaden/tweak the name and scope of this entry/tag. 

E.g., it might be nice for this entry/tag to also cover things like:

  • whether the "debate" format is good or bad for advancing knowledge and improving epistemics
  • proposals to have "anti-debates" on EA topics (see here), or reports about how anti-debates went (I know of at least one instance where an anti-debate was actually held)

And I think the current name+scope doesn't neatly cover those things?

I agree the scope should probably be broadened. I think the things you list can be discussed in an article with the current name, so my inclination would be to just change the description. Though if you can think of a better title, feel free to change it, too.
