I've also got my closing statement up in my debate against Ian.

Rather an epic duel!

It's going to be very interesting to see how the judges take this one one. We both took very different approches (theoretical vs pragmatic).

Looking forward to hearing the results

Does anybody know where the graphic showing the matches is? I can't seem to find the post. Or does it have its own thread now?

It probably got turned into an external link when we went to only ATS-hosted images. I think Ian used Photobucket.

edit:

here's the direct link:

Morning everyone, it's another Monday...always another Monday.



In case you haven't noticed the change yet, don't let my shiny new tag scare you.

I won't be taking advantage or abusing most of you.

Just the ones who imply you shirk a little in RL workplace eh?


Seriously, it says a lot that debaters are so well represented in the staff.

IMO that's the best advert for our little corner of ATS

Nice one!

Shall I now expect copious applause every time I rip a liberal to shreds?

Maybe because you're a student?!

I'm sure you'll do well anyway. You clearly have the mind of an academic if you're interesting in posting on ATS and discussing issues in the debate forum.

@PJ - Umm, perhaps it is because you are in school?


@OL - And so are you!

@Ding (&TML) - 44 (&Ian) - Great fights all around. I am very much looking forward to how the judges weigh-in as everyone has really stood and delivered.

@TV - I can see again! ... and I'm lookin' at you.


EDIT TO ADD: NYK! Good for you! What forums do they have you moderating?

Just learning the ropes right now, so I won't be taking on any forums just yet.

When I do though I'll let you know so you can avoid them.

Oh, I'll find you. And then we'll see how skilled you are moderating with restraint. A big part of the job, from what I hear.

Yes it does. Civility breeds respect and that what we have here. I'm DAMN proud of you guys. Hell, we all should be proud of this. The finest forum on ATS imo.

Agreed. I've always felt that way about the debate forum.

For my money you can't find a better group of intellectually honest individuals who actively seek intelligent discussion anywhere on the internet.

With a few exceptions like the token old cowgirl shotgun-totin' redneck "mama" over here in the corner.




 


Hey OZ! How about returning to your Varginha thread and noticing my contribution!?

But I wanted to say again CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is TOTALLY AWESOME both of you: AshleyD and NYK are NOW Mods!!!

Very GREAT choices in the two of you for keeping ATS - clean and a great place to discuss all kinds of "happenings"!!

CONGRATS!

I'm ashamed to say that's something I've always struggled with on the general forums. It's never a problem in the debate forum, but in "gen pop" I seem to lose my rag with posters every few minutes and post in a most uncourteous manner.

Perhaps I'm just elitist, but it could be that the debate forum is comprised mainly of intellectuals, none of who need "schooling".

I guess what I'm saying is... you folks make civility a breeze.

If I may direct your attention to this this thread

If this were ever to happen (and you never know once Brown gets pound signs in his eyes) then our UK members would have to begin posting SOBER!!


Imagine the horror of it.

FCP would never be the same again

In related news, I got my closing remarks up in my round 2 debate with chissler.
