I haven't read much of your debates, but they're pretty interesting.

Why don't you link to one of your debates that you think represents your abilities fairly accurately so if anybody wants to evaluate you, they can just read that one debate instead of having to read a bunch of them to get a feel for your abilities? That would make things easier on us.
