Another communism debate for me

Wormwood, no fair quoting me to myself on this one. Just 'cause I thought communism was great last spring doesn't mean I won't reverse myself now

Honest feedback is very welcomed on this guys.

We're trying to spread it out, catch some people off guard a bit but make sure we're staying true to what ATS represents. If you have any suggestions for future topics in the later rounds, forward them to me. I won't respond to any suggestions that are made, however they will be added to my list. No topics are ever confirmed with those that submit them as nobody knows what topics are being used until the thread(s) are announced.

But with a few more rounds in front of us, more topics are required.

We've got some great ones and we're still saving some juicy ones for the latter rounds.

Okies. Well I'm off to bed. I'll find out who I'm up against etc in the morning I guess.

You should have videoed the 2nd round draw and put it on the portal

Nite all

Oh you should have stayed up a little longer!!!

I drew you, gonna be a goood one I think

And parallex vs WUK is going to be an absolute cracker, lol. Two of the biggest ego's on ATS collide

You cheeky git!

Remind me to bitchslap you with a trout.

By the way, whoever chose the topic subjects is a legend. I've been absolutely gifted with a doozy of a subject.

The Para.

We should be able to get this round in prior to the holidays and then we'll take a short break until the New Year.

If anything arises, just communicate with your opponent and keep me in the loop.

Its Uk vs Aus in a battle revolving round anarchy! Surely not an accident

Time wise its a doozey though. We're on opposite sides of the clock. Hopefully we can manage it between us.

Hey, has anyone fired off a U2U to ww and nyk?

I'd hate to see them miss their opening post deadline.

Hi vkey ... regarding:

"(A personal addendum here at the end for all: If I ask for an extension tomorrow or whenever, I apologize in advance, an organization i am currently involved in litigation with tried to scare me away by filing complaints with CPS about my parenting abilities, it's all coming to a head now and looks like it's going to be a fight even though they have no is kind of the most important thing on my mind right now..)

Obviously RL considerations come first.

What I'll do out of courtesy is wait until the last possible minute to post so as to give you the maximum amount of time possible between posts. Take your extension if you need it, and if you require additional time, I am happy to wait a little longer.

Just let me know.

will do, this came out of nowhere and I need to find out if it's more scare tactics or something more substantive. I will U2U both you and Chissler when I know tomorrow afternoon what is really going on...

I am all for open communication between debaters to make time limits work for one another. If at any time someone feels they are being taken advantage of, you are within your right to move ahead with your post and it would never be held against you. But real life presents itself and if we communicate with one another openly, we can make the best of it.

And I've updated the title of this thread to keep members from attempting to sign up. If someone has a better title, be sure to throw it out there.

This thread can continue to serve as a means for us all to discuss the tournament as it plays out. Just a friendly reminder that it is in bad form to discuss an ongoing debate. Wait until a debate concludes to voice in.

Wukky, Para, you do realize this is not a race, right? You're making the rest of us slowpokes look bad
I mean, you guys are halfway done and a couple of us haven't even gotten started yet!
