You should be. We savage newbs with our rapier wits, demolish them with our biting sarcasm, and destroy them with our command of the issues.

Except the part where none of that's true.

Don't be nervous! We're a friendly crowd. Mostly. devil.gif Just make your case, be ready to support it with facts, and don't be afraid to be challenged. Worst that happens is you lose a debate -- move on to the next one!

Welcome rager! You'll find a lot of people willing to argue with you here, but I think Raptavio is right that we're pretty friendly, mostly. We will devour no newbies before they're properly cooked, anyway. Kidding!

I look forward to learning what your views are. Enjoy ad.gif !

Glad to have you here.

This place is so informative, and draws you in so completely, that it even has me researching who is going to be playing in the Superbowl this year! I've learned that PHI and CHI are not the Greek teams, and that the probable winning team is New Orleans and not North East. Up until this year my usual prediction has been that the Lions were more likely to win than the Christians, and that the new ads for the year would be shown... Maybe next year I'll get lured into watching a football game...

Nah! Their "hour" of play lasts far too long to keep this old man's attention! PE, what was this topic anyway? Not politics! Good, I can take off my old fogey mask and enjoy this steak you fixed!

Rager, if you're old enough, you can have my annual beer! beer.gif Cheers!

Oh, and just another thought: There are no formal winners or losers of debates at ad.gif . But we do have "Best Of" categories at the end of a year to celebrate those who do extraordinarily well as researchers, debaters, topic generators, etc. You might be one of them after you have been here a while and we get to know you better! thumbsup.gif

Without knowing what your beliefs are, I can almost guarantee that you’ll be getting fewer high-fives from people who agree with you than grief from those who don’t.

It’s the nature of the beast.

Glad to have you here.
