As mentioned in the Facebook Discussions, we loose track of the various discussions held online about juggling over the last decades, and facebook does not make it easy to find these discussions when you’re searching for them.
Therefor this is an attempt to list some of the most interesting discussions we’ve had over the years.

My random list, to kick off this thread:
Jay Gilligan, JugglingRock, 2018. Discussion about copying props, acts and technique
Jay says it’s not cool that Greg Kennedy’s cone and Michael Mosschen’s triangle are copied by other jugglers and presented as original ideas. The ‘likers’ seem to agree with him, but many commenters question what kind of copying is allowed or not. A large thread with many viewpoints, sidetracks, discussions about originality, copyright and morality.
Goblin Juggler, Reddit, 2014. What makes juggling interesting for non jugglers
Goblinjugler posted a video about how to make juggling cool again, most of reddit disagrees with his thoughts and responds in long format
Scott Selzer, Juggling Edge, 2017, discussion on the definition of juggling. (does anyone want to link to the various facebook discussions about this?)
It’s Him, Juggling Edge, 2013, listing of earliest historical record of juggling for each prop.
