3 Days is way too short. They should have a 1 week option.

Actually because I am lazy and do not want to think of an argument :)

Ugh I shouldn't have created the debate in the first place :(

Postponing does not always help. Quite the contrary, in fact. I often think three days is too much. A lot of debates I'd rather do in a span of few hours or a day. People are a quite opinionated, and if they have time to debate for a week, why not spend a few hours consecutively on settling an issue? Copy-pasting issues maybe. (I'm pointing at a few old libertarians who were in love with Mises.)

Is this our debate? Because I pretty much agree.

I think there should be time-limit-less options (NOT THE DEFAULT) for long debates. So if you want to do an in depth debate on an issue that is long and extensive, you can do this instead.

You'd probably just end up procrastinating to the end of the limit anyway.

I might support a five day limit, but keep default as three. I don't know how much time I'm going to have this fall with college and a job, especially as I told my boss I wanted to work as much as I could. An extended limit might allow me to continue to be able to debate.
