If I happen to notice an interesting debate between 2 especially skilled debaters early on, then I do tend to follow it round by round as they're posted.
Some of the recent ones I've done that with were Mikal's debates with larztheloser and bladerunner, and I was going to do it with phantom vs. Zaradi, but it got FF'd...

It depends on the person and circumstance for me.

There are debates that I've followed as they post round-by-round. For me, it depends solely on my interest in either the debaters or the topic at hand.

Just went and voted on a debate because of this thread. Got a guilt complex. But my vote will probably get rescinded because someone will find my RFD lacking in some manner. Hey, I read the debate, made my reasons for my vote known, WTF more do you want from me.
Beware of the people who are in your circle but are not in your corner.

And with the stroke of a pen people 18 to 21 who own a gun became criminals and public enemy #1 having committed no crime and having said nothing. Just like the Jews in Germany during WW2. Must be a weird feeling.

When I hear people crying and whining about their first world problems I think about the universe with everything in it and people in wheelchairs and all of their problems go away.

We're remaking this one from the looks of it due to outside circumstances on my side. If you would like I can send you a link to the actual debate when it is set up since you seemed interested in following it.
