deconstructing people's arguments only works when they are open to changing their mind.

Well, I don't think the goal is to change the perspective of someone who says something. That rarely works online. The goal, which every astroturf agency knows, is to influence the perceptions and attitudes of those absorbing the content; which is order of magnitude more than some random individual poster.

I personally would love it if raddle allowed people a vehemently disagree to have a genuine discussion with me on why I don't like them.

perhaps we can make a forum specifically for this?

No, not really. I'm talking about how having discussions on a forum with people you disagree with, can help to advance your point of view among the spectators.
