hello fellow members of ddo. i am mosaiceve and have just recently taken interest in professional and serious debating. however, after signing up on this site, i don't know where to start! i believe that experience, in this case, will speak louder than words on a screen. c: would anybody care to show me the ropes of debating and perhaps engage in a few sample rounds with me?

Welcome to DDO and you don't need any sample rounds. Just start debating and learn as you go.

Welcome to the site! In the main forums, there are orientation topics. Take a read through there, check out some of our good debaters, e.g. Thett3, zmikecuber, Wylted, YYW, bsh1, Roy Latham .. And jump right in!

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

In essence, the world is fucked up and you can either ignore it, become cynical or bitter about it.

Well, multiculturalism has a lot of positives and negatives. Whoever digs deeper will win that debate, regardless of the position they take.

-The polls and opinions sections are lame.
