My issue with whatukno was with an uncharacteristic accusation in a debate. Notgood sportsmanship. Easily fixed, as he felt unsure of the rules,
though I wish that he had just followed suit. The character limit is being reinstated for the second round on.
My issue with Ashley, is bsed on a very public rant on how she was 'slighted'. The implicit message being broadcast was that her opinion and
presentation trumps that of three other people who have in the past shown objective perspectives towards other views. The reason we have debates is
because most facts can be disputed.
The Debate Forum is an organized setting to discuss and contend various topics. It is in no means the end all be all, despite the fact that it has
one of the most (implicitly) strict expectations upon its' participants.
Truth be told, I didn't read that last post beyond the first sentence, which stated that you were responding to questions you received about the
judgment. Really. The thread was closed on the intent of that first sentence. I saw no need to entertain 'their' opinions. If I did, we might as
well have done this in the Conspiracies in Religion forum.
Apology accepted, Ashley.
I lost sleep on this debate, by the way...
