Oblivious, good editing on the Fat Tax debate. If you are interested, you could act as a steward of this debate. Let me know on my talk page. In any case, welcome to Debatepedia. We encourage you to see the Debatepedia:Getting started (tutorial) -- Brooks Lindsay 10:37, 21 November 2007 (CST)
Quite interested I was when I found out this site existed.
While we spend great efforts to refine our speech tracking, written word does not evaporate like so much air as the spoken one does. This is why I have always had the personal opinion that while spoken debate had a definite persuasive power in body language and manner, written debate is much more logically rigorous and verifiable.
Being able to devote the amount of thought and deliberation in a first affirmative speech to every paragraph is quite attractive to me. So yeah I'll be sticking around for a while.
