I'm getting seriously annoyed with this site. I've been coming back today every 2 hours or so to see if I have debate arguments do. I have 15 debates in the debating period, and its been a day without a argument for any of them. People don't respond after you type acceptance, and the debates I do get to post a argument for, see no response from my opponent after I max the character limit.

Any one want to do a quick debate? Three rounds 8000 characters. I take no more than 20 minutes for any of my arguments. I got three debates open, and I promise you will will post very shortly after you accept one.

Most debaters still usually post within their allotted time frames. It's unreasonable to expect you opponent to be waiting for your response. People have lives to live.

This was more of an advertisement to accept those two debates

Not sure if I care about the debaters life. I crush them so they forfeit

I like the opium one. I can't say I know much about the subject, but it seems like a fun research opportunity. I'm not crazy about the "you go first aspect" especially from a guy complaining about other folks hedging their debates but I guess I'd live. But not quick and not tonight. I'm only on my phone and I want to do some reading on the subject, naturally. If it's still extant tomorrow I might accept.
