What can I improve in this debate?
http://www.debate.org... Please vote and tell me what I can improve on and why.
I will change my sig weekly. Week 4.

Fun fact of the week
Clumsy alien Jar Jar Binks was introduced in The Phantom Menace for comic relief, but he was initially a two-faced mercenary who was to betray Qui-Gon Jinn, a Jedi Master played by Liam Neeson.

Joke of the week:
Nerd 1: "Why can't you trust atoms?"
Nerd 2: : "Cause they make everything up!"

You can start by not making resolutions that are so absolutist.

You basically lost that debate, before it started. I haven't read the debate, to give any other advice though.

Okay I just read the first round. Your entire argument is made up of ancdotes. That is something that can be a good piece of rhetoric for certain audiences, but it rarely works in debates. Using an anecdote to supplement an argument is fine but for your entire argument to be made up of anecdotal evidence is bad.

Spamming sources is a waste of space. If a source is of good quality, you only need one, and 5 sources of low quality don't make up for not having a good source.

Sources and conduct are my specialties and argument making grammar and spelling are my weaknesses.

Tejretics. He said what you said and told me to read your guide.

The guide is satire. It is not untrue, but it is satire. I'll send you a link if you need one, but there are better ways to learn.

Grammer and spelling are my weaknesses as well. I am getting better with it since I am going back to school and it feels like my knuckles are being hit with a ruler, when my teacher points out a mistake in S&G.
