There's hardly 10% of the posts that were being posted. Whats up Debate.org?
Me -Phil left the site in my charge. I have a recorded phone conversation to prove it.
kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos

I know it is a busy time in the semester for me. Where is everyone else?

Debate.org has gone downhill. I presume that this website shall die as well soon enough. As a captain, I shall go down with my ship.

In doubt it will go down. i think that the new school year has taken it's toll on people and the economic downturn isn't helping either.By summer, it'll be back up. I know it.
Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

Just in case I get into some BS with FREEDO again about how he's NOT a narcissist.

So... what's there to destroy evil inside of and above the constitutional government?

I agree with Labrat's agreement.

Though, the forums were never popular in the first place. True, activity has gone down, but the forums are hardly an accurate gauge.

Thank you.

Yeah, John's debate.org forum was much less popular than this is, and that meant nothing.

Come back Josh, all is forgiven!

Wow, desperation.

I think that if we get too popular and 'open' to the public, eventually we'll open a debate and get rickrolled.

People always have a natural tendency to see something as better because it was what they were originally introduced too. I first started watching basketball in 94-95. To me that year and the next two or three will always be the "best years". Just like how music when I was in my teens will always be the "best music".

People can certainly feel that times are not as good as they used to be, but one should be very careful before allowing themselves to believe that there is any objective truth to that.

That's what I was saying. Although I've read a lot of the older debates, and they seem a bit more entertaining and carefree.
