Join the revolution.

I'll do more debates after July 1st because the last week of June is *really* busy for me due to irl debate and similar stuff.

I've actually already been doing this. I haven't done that many debates in the last one and a half years, except during summers, because university has been so time consuming. But, it's summer now, and I've already done six debates, with more to come.

Cool -- I read your debate with Wylted, I might vote soon.

Join the revolution and vote Imabench 2016!

I'm down for that. I was actually thinking of running the gauntlet shortly after my 500th debate with BOT.

I don't know if I count as a "good" debater (probably not) but I think the thing that deters me from doing it more is that I have a really narrow interest in topics, topics that I feel people (other good debaters) generally don't like to debate.

Philosophy, religion, specific social issues, etc.

I mean, what qualifies as a good debater? Because honestly no such thing exists. There are only good debates, because debaters can be good or bad depending on the topic they are arguing with someone about. That is why debate is just as much about continual learning, then reaching a "peak" where it is claimed one is the "good debater". It is all in the debate that is being fought in that moment.

At least, that is how I see it.
Is Life meaningless? Is the answer 42? Will we ever know? The Great Conversation answers all.

Me and Danielle have been going overboard in debating in the past few weeks, debating noobs and experienced debaters left and right. It looks like Subutai is busy doing it as well. This was a silent revolution until you mentioned it

I noticed. And bsh and whiteflame are doing a debate, and even mikal is doing one. I always do debates, and I don't count myself as a good debater, but in the summer I will do more debates.

Just start a debate on whatever topic you want and put it in the challenge period - problem solved.
