Howdy, folks! It's that time of the week again.
---------------------------------------------

I am of the opinion that the Forum Ambassador program is going quite well. I want to thank my Ambassadors a lot for their help!

--------------------------------------------

This week's term is:

"LD"

It's an abbreviation for "Lincoln-Douglas", which is a style of debate.

Its origin really is in the Lincoln-Douglas debates in 1858.

http://en.wikipedia.org...

It has common terminology and format of its own, and focuses largely on "values", and it's distinguished from "policy debate".

http://en.wikipedia.org...

So if someone has indicated they want to do an "LD debate", understand that they're talking about a specific thing.

--------------------------------------------

As always, PM me if your debate is getting down to around 48 hours left without a vote on it. I promised that any voteless debate PMd to me in that time period would get a vote, and I maintain that promise.

-------------------------------------------

I'm keeping it short this week. What are your thoughts on it? Do you guys like the longer ones, or the shorter ones? More or less depth on the stuff like terminology? If you have any suggestions for any of the little extra bits (tips/tricks, history, Fallacy Spotlight, or terminology), shoot me a PM!

I was supposed to PM you a tip of the week... but I forgot. Poof.
Solonkr~
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.

I like the longer ones and the shorter ones. I even like it when you repeat the tips. I thought Hugo Chavez's TV show was the best Presidential update ever, but this is better. No sarcasm. You're the best.
