Challenge Accepted.

I would prefer not to sift through entire files and long speech docs, please keep it within browser, I'm fine with you removing unnecessary text from evidence using ellipsis, as long as you post the cites.

Extend everything and add his failure to post to the abuse arguments. This round never had a chance to be successful and it's completely his fault.

No there aren't.... even if you condense the block into 1 speech there is only room through the 2NR. It's not that hard to post on google docs... then just post the link in the comment section.

Ok, it appears an error's been made. Are you willing to go affirmative then? We still technically have enough debate round slots if you go aff. Post evidence in docs if you must, but keep files short unless you want a forfeit, I have major testing this week.

I was hoping I would get to debate this. If this debate doesn't end up working, I would be happy to debate you on the subject. I already have a case prepared, one I can and have read in 8 minutes.

Ok... first of all I only allowed for 2,000 characters per round meaning I could barely post 5 pieces of evidence even with ellipses. Second of all, you just "accepted" the challenge in the 1AC spot. If you post your 1AC in the comment section via google docs or media fire I'll still debate you... otherwise I think you sort of made the debate impossible to have (and I gave fair warning in the first post)

Just use mediafire or google docs. Just go by the rule of if you could legitimately read it in 8 minutes.

I'm a policy debater that has a case already built. It's a file much larger than 8,000 characters, however. Are you fine with me providing a link to a copy of my case or would you like me to just put tags?

Is that profile Pic really you?

If it is, then you look like a frog, no offense.
