I figured we should have the positive counter-part.

Which debates did you enjoy the most and most proud of your work in that debate?

and why?

Just in case I get into some BS with FREEDO again about how he's NOT a narcissist.

My first debate which was me vs. Ragnar_Rahl. I was arguing without understanding logic and reason, though felt as though I was debating unhindered. I just got to make claim after claim without feeling a bit of remorse for having lack of evidence and sources!

Justnlook at the point spread, and the voting period was something like a week long. This is also the debate that got Vi banned.

In this one the instigator wanted to change the resolution about half way through the debate to make it easier for him to win. I accepted and still, in my opinion, destroyed.

It was my first debate,

I lost (though only b/c my opponent cast 7 points)...

I didn't make a full case...

and the comment section (mostly on my end) was ridiculous...

But I thought The Debate was pretty good :)

I would be proud of this one if I'd had a more challenging opponent...

I wish I'd seen your debate challenge on infanticide before you sent it to InquireTruth, Freeman. I have some interesting arguments against utilitarianism I'd like to try.

We can still argue about abortion. I'm practically done with a new abortion debate if you're interested. Of course, it would have to happen after this current debate.

I've read lots of arguments against utilitarianism, which one are you thinking about?

Oh, some you've probably heard of and others you haven't :D

I know it's been forever since we tried to do the Kyoto Protocol debate, but with finals coming up, I can't really do any serious debates until after school's out. I'm up for anything after that, though.

I still have that debate; it's about 90% done. I'm fine with debating later.
