I took the liberty of tallying the stars from our discourse match. A=17, D=26. D ends with plus 9 stars. That indicates that ATS members are
leaning no regulation. Then again, it's hardly a valid indication of anything.
Subtracting the ten that you gave me, that's seven more stars than I thought I'd get -- on gun control, this is a tough room, lol. And as I said
earlier, it was more exploratory than anything else -- contrary to appearances, I'm not really a gun control advocate, not in the classic sense,
It was fun. 10 seemed a bit too long, but an interesting format nonetheless.
Yes, it was interesting, though it definitely got stretched out. If it was an actual match that needed to be judged, I'd say a strict scoring system
of three points per round:
- Did they ask an effective Socratic question?
- Did they respond to what they were asked?
- Was that response effective?
There were a couple of rounds where I think you ducked my question (sensibly, lol) and at least one round where
I ignored yours completely.
Thanks again, the experience made me wish I could buy you a beer and have a chat
