My name is Mike and my handle here is Grizzly Bear.

While not an expert debater by any means, I've had some prior experience and look forward to sharpening my debating skills here. Looks like a great site with quite a few experience debaters.

As a noob, what I'm concentrating on doing now is: NDAS: Not Doing Anything Stupid (because I didn't read the FAQs). ;-)

That's an interesting point you've got there. Hey, you might just fit in here after all!

Welcome. Don't worry about not reading the FAQs, I didn't even know they existed. So long as you stay away from some of the more... explosive members, you should be fine.

Welcome to the site! DDO's a great place to pick up and sharpen debate skills, but you'd be surprised how often that involved doing stupid things first.

Welcome to the site.

It's worth glancing over the FAQ because it does contain some useful information.

If you have any questions or need anything at all, always feel free to contact me.

Enjoy the site.

Here's a list of stupid things to NOT do:

1. Accept an debate without reading what the argument exactly is and especially what side you're going to be on. Most people begin arguments as Pro, but you should alwaty read, something I didn't do when accepting this: http://www.debate.org...

2. Not being clear and concise on creating a resolution. If you're not clear, people can use semantics against you and that might sway the voters.

3. Feed a troll.
That moment where you're bored and want to do a debate, then you're doing four all at once.

That takes all the fun out of it.

I literally just did that today. And yesterday. The semantics thing that is.

3. Feed a troll.

But us trolls get hungry.

Go vote on one of my debates. I'm not that smart, so it'll probably be an easy decision.
