Just wondering...
Are Parliamentary Debate and Public Forum the same thing?
Thanks for answering my stupid questions without making me feel stupid! (:

And this is why I want a separate forum for FAQs where, instead of ridiculing people we just answer their questions.

PoFo and Public/Parliamentary debate aren't the same thing. However, Public & Parliamentary can vary slightly from state to state, whereas PoFo, being an NFL event, tends to be standardized.

PoFo is a partner debate based loosely around both a researched case and "layman's" speaking style. Right now, debaters are discussing Affirmative Action, for instance. The topic changes each month.

Public/Parliamentary, on the other hand, is not a researched debate, per se, though my students are required to read periodicals every day in order to keep up their domestic and foreign affairs knowledge. The topic is chosen independently each round. Depending on what state or tournament you are in/at, you may or may not be able to use outside sources to research during your "prep time," which is 15-20 minutes after choosing a topic, used for writing your case.

The key differences are in speaking times (PoFo as ridiculously short speeches) and researched content/pre-tournament prep time.

Why should we answers questions? We're not everyone's personal search engine.

Stupid questions deserve being ridiculed.

Well, we get the community that we foster, buddy. I'd personally prefer to help people out than to get my rocks off by dumping on people via the internet. I guess we just have different priorities, for ourselves and for the website.
