This is just a rough idea.

Would anyone be down for actual structured debates?

We would need to brainstorm a list of topics over a week or so, and then probably pair off into tournament brackets. From there we could easily randomly select one of the brainstormed topics for each matchup. If we can get about 16 people going, it would be really, really fun.

So I guess let me know if you are down, and I will arrange it. Also, use this thread to brainstorm debate topics.

I would be interested, but I would like to be set up with a partner that pays attention to the "facts", because I really struggle in that department.

Yeah I'd be down though I've never had any formal debate training or anything (yeah, I'm sure I had you all fooled).

I've always been good at being the devil's advocate, I could try to debate Sunny's side.

In Sunny's mind, Jimmy's "contributions" were effectively disrupting the forum and general order. He has, in the past, shown a willful disregard for following rules or stopping his trolling when asked or told to. So, knowing full well that he would not stop, Sunny felt the only way to preserve "forum order" was to delete Jimmy's posts. This, in a way, is correct. Banning him (which she also did) was shown to be completely ineffective as Jimmy could simply register new accounts to continue his disruption. Deleting his posts, and removing their disruption, was the quickest and surest way to solve the problem.

Well, if INTL is a frat, you need someone to clean up the shit afterwards.
