Posit it to Druid42, then, as it would be interesting...

As I said, it's not my bag, I wouldn't really present much of an argument.

I'm dumb enough to take on any debate.
However, I am on a debate hiatus until after the new year. I will not accept any new debates until then, and I have two challenges to finish. (Heff and RA, that's you two.)

I hope everyone takes a break, and enjoys the holiday season.

I'll still be here, but without our backbone mod, Skyfloating, let's not complicate things too much. Debates can continue, but let's not worry about judgments till after the new year.

Staff will be working, but are tied up with other activities, as well.

As much as I love this forum, there's nothing so pressing that it can't wait until after the holidays.

Besides, it's the end of the world:



See you all back here tomorrow!

Speaking of that, I am ready for round three whenever you are. If I recall you have the "pro" in this round, so it's your move....


No hurries though. Given the season we might not see judgments on our first two rounds for awhile yet.

That's true, and the topic is "AI will be beneficial to mankind?". I'm ready to go when you are, and so glad to get the pro position finally on the AI topic..

It twists our defense nicely.

Let me know, I can work on my position tomorrow eve. I'll post the opening then, If you are ok with that.

Apologies again everyone, after the tooth thing, i thought i was recovering, and then poof, major flood in the house, lost my computer and a lot of other things, today I just replaced my computer, and I am still setting everything up.

Again I cannot say I'm sorry enough for just dropping off the planet, but.... I couldn't have in a million years foreseen this..

Part 3, the finale, has been opened.

AI will be beneficial to mankind?



It's the end of the AI debate series, but this ONE LAST match will decide the winner.

Sincerely, Heff, may the best man win.

(I tuned my chainsaw all up, and am ready to hack and slash in this battle of words!)

I'm in no hurry, so take your time....
edit on 12/21/12 by Druid42 because: had to fix headline....

Yikes.

At least you are back online. Hope you do get back up to speed soon, but it's nice to know you can at least login.

I'd go crazy with two weeks of no internet. Well, *cough* maybe the internet has nothing to do with it.


Good to see you back!

Got my first post in round three of the AI series up!

Sorry it took so long... It's been a busy week.

Given the Holiday season and the busy state most of us are in - I'm going a bit off page and asking the fighters who aren't busy to send me a PM if they are interested and available to judge a debate currently.

I've got two that need judging right now - so any and all volunteers will be appreciated!
