Antarctica is a continent, just like any other, sailed around and fully explored.
Please excuse the FAQ, it is not the "ice wall", in fact there is no proof an ice wall exists, just speculation.

What makes more sense, as theorized by Willmire, the outer edge (is far beyond)

People travel to the rim. There is a very small area that is open to tourists. Not anyone can explore Antarctica. Much of it is restricted.

Actually, there are over 60 bases in Antartica, representing more than 20 countries, with around 1000 people in it.

So I guess Antartica is pretty well known.

And the cliche award, and it was a tough one this year, goes to momentia, for his continued hijacking of threads. Iwanttobelieve came in close second due to his obsessive hatred for the FAQ, but momentia beat him out by being a carbon copy of hundreds of other members.

Also, to make this not low content, this question was answered recently in a thread in FE General.

Really?  I have never seen proof of this.  Would you mind sharing some with me?

And just imagine the number of people who've been to those bases since their opening, the first one in 1947.

5,000? 10,000? All bribed? And none of them have ever spoke of the icewall?

Are you speaking of the well-documented wall of ice that encircles the known area of the earth? Or of the possible large mountain range at the earth's uttermost rim?

If the first, they do speak of it. If the second, it is reasonable to conclude that ice wall is farther south than the research bases.

This is a pure syllogism: you are telling me that the icewall is further south than the bases, but your reasoning implies that Antartica isn't like the maps shows it is.

The research bases are documented (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Antarctica_Station_Map.gif).

May be you can disprove this. I can't.

In what sense? In that I do not think Antarctica is a separate continent apart from the rim? Of course then it is not like your map. Who knows how far the breadth of the earth expands? Certainly not I. Nor do I think anyone here has the hubris to state that with authority (excepting, perhaps, John Davis, from whom you would hear that the earth's breadth is entirely immeasurable as it is infinite). If an enormous mountain range rings the earth, it is clearly farther to the south than your research bases. 

If one believes Lord Wilmore's map more likely to be true, and Antarctica to be its own continent, then again, there is untold land to the south of that continent.

There is no reason to think any of the researchers would see this hypothetical ice wall, nor if they did see it that they would distinguish it from the vast array of mountains reported in Antarctica.

Perhaps some few have seen the mountains. How would we know?

We know because Antarctica has been cartographied and explored.

Should there be an icewall in Antarctica, it should have at least been detected.

yes, even just sailed around you can tell ANtarctica is not an "ice wall"
even in its summer months it can even support some flora

Restricted by whom?

Mostly people on the government dole go to Antarctica.

I mean tourists. People who go ther for business, not pleasure.

Huh. Maybe those people would've told someone? Taken a few pictures? A Sketch? Written it down? I mean why not?

Misinterpreted as mountains/ assassinated by conspiracy/  brainwashed by conspiracy/ paid off by conspiracy/ too cold or far to explore/ there is no ice wall.
Any of these could be reasons why there is no recorded evidence of a physical ice wall.

Do you want evidence for all of those things? They're merely suggestions, bro. I don't know which one is true. I've never been to the Ice Wall. And I'm not going to risk going there either, since I value my life.

That's alright, but it brings us back to square one, where we can only speculate on why there's no ice wall.
