Hi, all.

It feels great to be back!

This is a debate I've been dying to do for some time. I typed out the OP for a topic of the week a while back (http://www.debate.org...), but without any luck. So, yes, this is a shameless plug, but I'm hoping someone will want to argue in favor of the Fed's current policy stance of raising interest rates--at least expectedly--in mid-2015.

The debate can be found here: http://www.debate.org...

If you're interested, let me know.

Welcome back Joey!

How was your leave?

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.

I'm honestly surprised to see you back. But not that surprised... no matter what, we'll always be addicted to the site, right?

I don't think it's overly surprising. I still played mafia, after all, and having an account affords me the chance to actually make my games as complex as possible. :P

Yeah I know it isn't. I mean I thought after our conversation that maybe you'd leave permanently like you wanted to. But yeah, DDO is like a siren- it has its ways of roping you back in.

We've had several, but I'm not in the business of disclosing private conversations. I think something about privacy is sacrosanct, and securing it out to be of paramount concern.

It's great. I can't PM you either, fyi.

I don't know what that is, but congrats?

Just wanted to bump this to see if I could find someone interested. If it would at all help, I'll even take the affirmative side.
