Information sharing between online users has altered the way we seek and find information. Users have at their disposal a wide range of tools for exchanging opinions and engaging into discussions. This creates a large amount of user generated information that can often be misleading, false or even malicious. We demonstrate a question-and-answer web application, based on Computational Argumentation, that offers debating infrastructure for opinion exchanges. It empowers users to organically determine trustworthy answers through their feedback which takes the form of voting and posting attacking or supporting arguments.
