Almost been a year since my last debate. I've been put off of debates plenty of times due to losing from vote bombing. It used to be impossible to see votes in a certain period. Now I find my topics of interest to be alien to most people here. I also lack the motivation ATM, Ma'ams.

Dance little monkey, dance! I'm an awful debater though. I'll end up calling you a provincial twat.

I'll take any debate that looks interesting to me; I'm just bad at instigating.

I'm willing to, theoretically. Occasionally I check the challenges.

But I may be done debating. I came here from freeratio.org, where turns last a week. I write slowly; having to produce a debate post in three days is stressful. Often enough, my opponents here are freaky fast, and my next three day deadline starts in the blink of an eye.

So, while I may debate again, I'm not eager to. When I check the challenges, I find that I'm hoping they won't be appealing.

Or, put a different way, I prefer to do my debating in the forums, where I don't have time limits or character limits.

I'd love to see one-on-one threads, where my opponent and I are the only ones with access to the discussion thread, and we are the only ones barred from the peanut gallery thread, in which other people comment on our discussion.

Actually, you could set such a thread up for more than two people, which might satisfy much of the demand for team debates. No scoring, no deadlines, no character limits, no turns, and no distraction by butinskis posting in your thread, but plenty of productive discussion.

I want it.

I've slowed down debating, but that's just because I'm back in school. I still want to and are open to debates.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

Do you want to debate something? Not quite sure as to what we disagree on, but whatever.

Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

I haven't for a while, or it feels like ages anyway. I suppose it's cause I'm back at school now and I'm taking an entire extra subject compared to most kids my age in the UK, so my free time is limited...
I'm back (ish).
