So I need to improve on debating, and I need to debate someone who is pretty challenging but not so unbelievably hard that they would curb stomp me.

Would anybody like to debate me?

Didn't we agree to do a debate a while back, was it the death penalty?

Nuclear weaponry. Indeed.

I am looking for multiple people so I can add more to my plate.

I thought it was the death penalty...I was going to argue pro.

Don't remember it. I don't know enough about it to have a position. I am leaning Con, but I just want to make sure I can argue for it well.

Don't actually think this is a good idea. Part of what you need to do to learn from debates is be able to analyze the arguments actually being presented and whether or not those arguments were the most strategic arguments to be made. Overloading yourself in debates to just "debate more" can be counter-productive if you are too busy with other debates to actually learn from the debates you're doing.

Yeah, balance between quality and quantity is important.

I think judging, with a focus on writing quality RFDs, is just as important as getting involved in debates.
