Good stuff

Good first contributions. The important thing to me is that you're taking initiative and that your writing style is sound, and it is. I've adjusted some of the formatting. You want to make bold-type argument headers to start-off each argument. And, not make an entire section out of the argument using, as you did, ==== ==== . Keep it up. Good stuff. -- Brooks Lindsay (Talk) 10:29, 29 April 2010 (EDT)

Thank you

Thanks Brooks for the compliments, I really appreciate it. And I'll definitely use some of your tips; I think I'm finally getting used to the formatting. :)

More good stuff

Very nice work. More comments: You are writing fairly long argument titles. So, one of the more recent ones was: "Illegal immigrants deprive Americans of social services such as government welfare, housing, food, and shelter." I would write this as "Illegal immigrants deprive Americans of social services. These can include government welfare, housing, food, and shelter..." Try to make the argument titles/headlines about the length of a news headline - very short, usually no more than 7 or 8 words, and sometimes using pithy wording in headline style (which may be slightly off grammatically, but there's an accepted style that you'll get the hang of). Best, -- Brooks Lindsay (Talk) 13:54, 30 April 2010 (EDT)
