A big congratulations to my opponent, Maria_stardust, for her split decision win on this debate here:www.abovetopsecret.com...

It was a well fought debate, and I was happy to walk with a split decision on such a tough position to defend!

Thanks again to the judges, as your replies REALLY help me in my endeavor to become a master debater. (couldn't resist!
)

Memoryshock I hope that with two debates under my belt, I get a shot in this tourney of yours!

-Jason

I'm thinking you don't have to worry about a position in the tournament...

Ah, another great debate finished up! Just posted my closing statement:

Challenge Match: emsed1 vs Ian McLean: The Mason's Just Need A Few Good Men

I can now sit back, here in the Pub, nurse my wounds, and enjoy a long-anticipated glass of Scotch - Glenmorangie, this time, for those keeping track at home. Aaahh...


Thanks, emsed1, for an excellent debate!

That was one of my favorite debates in a while....


emsed1 and Ian McLean deserve major props for an enthralling debate...I haven't looked forward to another 'episode' since I was in High School and watched Party of Five...


Seriously...great job guys...

I just read your debate emsed and Ian McLean. Great addition to the Debate Forum, both of you.

Wow, brave move chissler; deliberately evading the ATS censors directly above a link to the T&C's in your signature.


I, for one, support that call; I think (similar to the debate on substance legalization a while back) this is one case in which open discussion justifiably calls for some flexibility.

Exactly...context is key. And chissler and bodrul can have a mature discussion...

Thank you for the privilege of an honorable and well-fought debate.

Yes, I will admit... Ian made me his bitch, but I liked it!

Lol! That, I would not say. The honor was mine. It's really tough to debate someone being so sincere, genuine, and 'above it all'. I read your closing and thought "crap, is there anything I can say that won't make me look like a jerk?"

I have to say that both of you had me wondering...I meant it when I said that I couldn't wait for the next installment...it was a great debate....


And I can't wait to see what you can do, emsed1, in a debate that you are not personal to...


I can't wait for this tournament....you all have talent and knowledge that makes the rest of ATS pale in comparison...

Yep it was definitely a problem for me to separate my personal attachment to the subject.

A great debater (like my opponent) can debate either side of an issue with equal prowess, and that's something I need to work on.

But, I can think of no better place to work on it than here!

It's going to be a lot of fun no matter what happens.

So is there any idea of what the range of topics will be?

Please just don't make it anything to do with Canadians since 1980...


(seriously, why didn't someone warn me about GAO ?)

I am actually giving up posting for this debate and my Story I am writing for all of you people, so I hope this fills the void, and I'm not eliminated in the first round... less than two weeks to go Baby!!!

Just a reminder...

When you are reading one of the debates... I read them all....

Take a moment and Flag and Star the contributions...

Juts a real simple and free way to show support for each other...

Actually, if you guys would like to start posting topic suggestions, please feel free...We could use all the suggestions we can get...though I already have a list of topics....


And remember, that noone will get a topic that they have suggested....

Another handy, dandy little reminder...

READ THE RULES

When you accept the title of "Fighter" you join a very small and exclusive fraternity of intellectuals. Yes, that may sound conceited, but I am still in awe at some of the talent we have in the Debate Forum.

Upon joining that community, some things are expected of the Fighter; Following rules, making the time limits, communicating etc...

So, when you get started, or need a refresher, MemoryShock, TheVagabond and intrepid ALL post the rules at the beginning of each and every debate so that they are prominent and easy to access..

PLEASE READ THEM

It prevents accidents, promotes a smooth and professional debate and makes us all look really good too...
