Critiscm is part of debate. Thus, I am an awful debater. So far.

Well, I mean my performance on this site as well. It has been several months and I STILL haven't convinced Bladerunner that I am a sufficient voter.

I wouldn't say you're an awful debater. Most of your debates aren't great, but that's a measure of your opponents as well. I think you really need to push yourself and go up against someone who's going to challenge you to produce strong arguments.

As for the criticism issue, I wouldn't worry about that. Not being good at criticizing someone personally doesn't necessarily reflect on debate skills.

And to further my point, I am bad at criticizing other people, especially you.

And even after 4 months, I haven't improved. That's pathetic. My only two decent debates are my gay marriage and Marijuana debates, which even then, I could have done miles better on. Some people think I am a good debater, but I *highly* disagree. That has *never* been true.

Look. I can improve, but for now, it's obvious that I am an awful debater. There's no getting around that.

There are lots of ways to improve. None of us was good from the start, and the mentorship program should be an effective step.

My only hope is the debate mentorship program.

Forgetting conversations is one speck of dirt in a sea of mud for me. I have:
-Barely beaten low caliber debaters
-LOST to poor quality debaters
-Been criticized by people who aren't even smart
-Have had my voting privileges revoked because of my awful votes
-Only have done decent in two debates
-Haven't improved since I first came here
-Not been able to comprehend the BASICS of debating
-Argued for the wrong side
-Tied with awful debaters
-Forfeited too much
-Been called a "noob" and have been PROVEN to be one
-Have mediocre grammar

Eh, don't sweat it. If forgetting a conversation is a sign of how terrible of a debater you are, then I'm in worse shape.
