Two of you still need to be upgraded to fighter. The rest of you have been. Our wonderful supermods have been extremely quick about that.
I will pair you guys up and assign topics tonight. The threads should be in existence by midnight, Pacific Time, I will notify you all by U2U and I
will unlock them at approximately 4 AM, at which time the 24 hour countdown will begin. I realize it is a work day for many of you and that morning
people are a rare breed, so you are under no obligation to hurry.
I am opening them early because when I have debated in the past, both while working and since deciding to continue my education, I have found it
convenient to print out debate threads and take them with me during the day so that I could read and reread my opponent's post for mistakes, figure
out where he was going, and begin outlining and deciding what I have to research.
You will have all day and all night to actually post, and if you need a little extra, especially early on while you're getting the hang of this,
Again the threads will open and 24 hour count will begin at *approximately* 4am, pacific time, if everything goes as I plan.
Protect yourselves at all times. Now touch gloves, return to your corners, and come out swinging.
