UberSpat.com is a debating site that allows users to submit articles and blog posts, much like people do on Digg. This evidence can be submitted in support or in opposition to a debate. This evidence is then rated by users. The best of the evidence floats to the top, thus allowing users to research topics, much like they do on Wiki.

Much like Digg users add news articles and blog pages to have them dugg up or down, UberSpat.com also accepts these types of submissions. However, in UberSpat the user rates the submission as it relates to evidence to the debate at hand.

UberSpat is an online debating community that allows users to submit any debate of their choosing. Although online debating communities are not necessarily a novel idea, the way UberSpat implements the idea is quite unique. In UberSpat, users can submit articles that support or oppose a particular side of a debate. That evidence can then be rated by others, allowing the best evidence to float to the top. In this way, UberSpat also becomes an excellent resource tool much like Wiki. People interested in researching a particular topic such as Global Warming can create their own debate, and watch the evidence roll in. They can then read the evidence from both sides of the debate, and make up their own mind.

Bloggers that like to debate can create debates on UberSpat that is centered around their blogs. They can then submit those blog articles as evidence to their debate. This provides them with a link back to their own blogs and hopefully a better ranking on search engines such as Google.

Scott Heber, Director of Technology for Uberspat.com said, "When we started Uberspat.com we were looking to build a better mouse trap for debating and getting informed on the issues. We were tired of finding web sites that dealt with only one side of an argument. We were tired of finding low level 'You're a jerk! No, you're a jerk!' type exchanges."

Heber continued, "We were also tired of having to read through a whole haystack of web documents hoping to find one valuable needle that did a good job addressing a particular argument. With Uberspat.com, users can submit and rate arguments and evidence all the time. The net result is that we are creating a reference for some of the critical issues of our time as well as an arena for lively debate."
