As of late, I have run into a virtual brick wall in my debates. Wherever I go, I run into people saying, this topic is irrelevant, or, your arguments are weak. This kind of stuff corrodes my confidence that is applicable to debating. Feel free to check any of my debates and send me some advice. Particularly this one; http://www.debate.org...

Thanks!

If you'd like, I am willing to debate you, and then afterward we can discuss what you can work on, how you can improve those things, and why they need to be improved.

I'd take bsh1 up on that. You really cannot improve solely by looking back at past debates - you have to get murdered and then do some forensics of the scene. It's a very quick way of learning a lot.

My philosophy too. The best way to learn how to swim is to start drowning.
