I can't, no time this time around.


I have to encourage their over confidence this time around...if they're smart, they'll read my first two debates in the forum from 2005 and laugh off this post due to over confidence...


Hhmmm...I may have yet to win a tournament...but if you and semper aren't in, I do believe that this will be my first number one seed. Kind of funny since this time around I am very concerned about the field strength and my dusty debate noggin...

Thankfully, you don't seem at all bitter about it.

Time to get your hopes up.

Hopes are muted and presented for smack talkage...

As well, the victory will not be my victory but a cumulative effort...

I would just like to say that there are no real winners or loosers, since I will of course be bribing all the Moderators and Judges!


You bribe, I blackmail, let's see which strategy works better.

IE, I win or these pictures of semperfortis campaigning for Obama get posted.

I'm not sure yet o-l ... it is by far my favorite pursuit here on ats and it pains me to consider missing it, but RL stuff weighs heavy at the moment and I am not sure I can dedicate the prerequisite amount of time. I will know in the next few days. Plus, there's MemoryShock's ambitions to consider, I wouldn't want to 'sash-block' him.

Well, that isn't the best blackmail item. I as sure millions of other folks, that voted and campaigned for Obama, have given up the darkside.


It would explain the swelling of the TPM ranks.


And for all those folks claiming victory, I saltheart foamfollower will take this trophy.

Being that I am a master debater.

Don't worry on my account...I have time to dedicate to this and would appreciate a chance if my skillz are either in my brainz or still a bit viable.

Besides...it's all about the exercise in rhetoric and I could use the upgraded lesson...

For some reason I believe that I may be biting off more than I can chew. Lets hope I am not too outmatched.

Looks like IT'S ON.
I don't care to debate, nor run for public office, but I do wanna help the member that is saying what I'm not quick enough to think of, any help?
Where is my brain when I want it?

Well, I "thought" the self deprecating humor was obvious.


Gonna have to "polish" up my debating skills.

Well Chissler did say..


Our tournaments that take place once or twice a year are an effort from staff to say "thank you" and really offer an environment for the best of the best. If you currently lack the experience that others may have, you can make up for that by involving yourself in the forum.


In all honesty, I do not qualify for this category. One should use some serious self reflection to determine if this description applies to your person. It is with this realization that I humbly withdraw myself from the competition.

(What was I thinking!!)

If you are going to set up a debate tournament for the clueless, I will happily apply!!!

Peace

Why quit!

This is a debate challenge. Its about one view against another on a specific subject. That means what ever your opponent will write, you will always be able to say something.

That is what the challenge is all about.

The tric is not to be cought in your opponents magic.

Oh no, it's just that I do not think this...


Our tournaments that take place once or twice a year are an effort from staff to say "thank you" and really offer an environment for the best of the best.


...description has any connection to my digital identity.

You see, my ego sprung a leak recently and it's deflated to the point where I can not see myself meeting these criteria.

(S'dog's thread on the ego must have been a preemptive attack to rid himself of any competition)



Peace

The good thing about this debate/game is that you have to play a side. This game has nothing to about who You are, but about how good you are to play the role that you are given.

I bet if you play your side with style. The judges will love it and so will the public. Don't pay attention to who your opponent is. But pay attention to what he /she is saying. Than remember which role you play, and attack.

If you stick to your side of the subject 100% Your opponent will never win.
