RI, no contest. If you need any more proof, check the economics forum or this debate: [http://www.debate.org...] Unfortunately, he hasn't done many actually *challenging* economic debates on this account. If you desire a second-place person... 16kadams. [http://www.debate.org...]

5. Funny?

Imabench... Just look at his profile.

11. Philosophy?

Zaradi - [http://www.debate.org...] and [http://www.debate.org...] Definitely a master in philosophy... very good interpretations. I could find other debates that might represent that better, but these two were the most relevant recent examples of his expertise.

12. Politics?

Whiteflame - [http://www.debate.org...] and [http://www.debate.org...] Both of these are highly political debates in which Whiteflame articulated his political reasoning very well.

15. Society?

Bsh1 - [http://www.debate.org...] Justice is often assumed as being in a society. I think his societal interpretation of the resolution is very good. For example, he makes multiple relations to our society and animals.

You can answer none, some, or all of these, but please provide a reason/example of why this particular DDO debater is the best at that subject.

What's your opinion?

Well, I typically will read debates with topics about which I'm not usually passionate, and they typically end in forfeit or are just plain garbage.

I would say I agree with whiteflame being the best political debater and the debate you provided for economics was good.

I actually wasn't sure of my other picks, which is why I started this forum...I want to see who everyone else considers to be good debaters.

That's always unfortunate. :/

Yep. Really, all of these debaters are phenomenal in both their respective areas of expertise, but in most other areas as well.

I actually wasn't sure of my other picks, which is why I started this forum...I want to see who everyone else considers to be good debaters.

Yep! Hopefully this will garner more responses!

I mean, pretty much all he does is noob-snipe and do econ debates, so you can probably just check one of his accounts to find what you want quickly.

4. Entertainment?

Either Maikuru or me, though Maikuru doesn't debate much anymore.

Do you have any links to particular debates?

Sure. I'll fill some in above. Mind you, this is just a cursory selection by me--there may be better debate examples than the one's I pulled.

Though, best by category doesn't always equate to best overall. I would not, for instance, place JMK (RI) in the group of "top site debaters" though he clearly dominates in economic debates. Thett (excellent at society and politics) I didn't even mention above, but he certain would be in that top group overall.

You can also find many good debates here: http://www.debate.org...

Thanks for the props, though you're right; I wanted to stop at 45 debates but got sleepy and stopped. I do enjoy all your Trek/Wars debates. Keep it up!

Economics?

JMK (RI) definitely. He hasn't really done that many challenging debates on the subject but all you need to do is go to the economics forum to see how intelligent he is in regards to economics.

Entertainment?

Bsh1.

E.g http://www.debate.org...

Funny?

Imabench.

His best troll debate by far: http://www.debate.org...

History?

Hayd, Endark or Uther.

E.g http://www.debate.org...

Philosophy?

Envisage, n7 or Zaradi.

E.g http://www.debate.org...

Politics?

Whiteflame.

E.g. http://www.debate.org...

E.g. http://www.debate.org... (this is a really good debate).

Science?

Whiteflame or Subutai.

E.g. http://www.debate.org...

General Society: http://www.debate.org...

Debate.org Society: http://www.debate.org...

I've lost faith in ranking "best" debaters because of how arbitrary such rankings really are, and so on. But I'll give you a rough list of debaters whose debates on these subjects you should really read:

Economics - RI, 16k
Politics/Society - whiteflame, bluesteel, Raisor, F-16, FT, J.Kenyon, Freeman, Danielle, RoyLatham, 16k, YYW, thett3
Religion/Philosophy - Sargon, Raisor, Envisage, popculturepooka, n7, InquireTruth, Zaradi, bsh1
Entertainment - Maikuru
Science - Subutai, Envisage, whiteflame

There are multiple others -- but reading their debates is a good start.

Do you mean besides Vispex?
If that was the only issue, then vote moderation could be avoided more often, since a vote in which the voter does explain sufficiently how at least one point a debater made swung their vote, would be considered sufficient. -Airmax
