Idea time: Let people hyperlink in debates.
Debate me: Economic decision theory should be adjusted to include higher-order preferences for non-normative purposes http://www.debate.org...

Do you really believe that? Or not? If you believe it, you should man up and defend it in a debate. -RoyLatham

That could get really tricky if you have multiple sources warranting a point. I personally don't but I know a lot of, like, economic debates and other kinda "usual" debate topics (abortion, death penalty, etc.) can have arguments that are sourced by multiple sources. Could get really tricky to do that if you're hyperlinking.

Then people could still include actual links. This doesn't preclude them from doing so, but it just makes things generally more fluid.
