Can I comment on other people's debate? Is there a line between objective commentary and helping one side?

For future reference, I would recommend short vote times with the onus on participants to vote.

Also I'd like to see a speed tourney- 2-4,000 words 12-24 hrs arg time, cites allowed in comments, short vote.

Okay... I see what happened.

I was put on the Expert list first. I asked for Intermediate, and so was moved there. The Expert list filled up and launched without me. Then everyone started using the old list that had me in the Expert tier. When the Intermediate tier filled up, I wasn't on it.

Yikes! My appologies sir... I am guessing there will be some inactivity for this... You wouldn't be too annoyed if I put you in as the first option for replacement if someone does not respond with a challenge in time?
