I suspect we need a word limit on each post and a time limit for the total debate. What are people's thoughts?
l33t, I don't know if I thanked you property for agreeing to be the referee... so... thank you. Have you told our staff how you like your tea or coffee?
Proboards already has a word limit so IMO that's not anything we should worry about.
If we set a time limit on the debate, I think it should be quite high--maybe six weeks or two months or even more. Often life interferes--jobs, families, houses, etc--and these topics are something which may need a significant amount of research to fully make reasoned and well thought out arguments.
IMO rushing it would be a serious mistake and it would be more beneficial for the champions to not have to be overly-stressed about a time frame.
Maybe for the first debate we shouldn't have a time frame at all and just see how it goes. I'd hate to be in the middle of a great fireworks show and have it end on a technicality.
So, I'd vote for quality over quickness and will do my part to keep the kitchen overflowing with refreshments.
My 2 cents, freespirit
Don't worry about what people think... they don't do it that much anyway.
Elders Tom Pettit and Andrew Housley told reporters Friday that they would be wary in the future of freshly baked treats because the cookies offered them by McLean and Lynch in May put them in the Hospital. The missionaries were offered and ate up to 12 cookies each, which McLean and Lynch each had no more than three.
Lynch and McLean told reporters after sentencing that they had nothing against the two missionaries, "If they knock on our door again they are quite welcome to come in, have a cup of coffee and a biscuit," McLean said.
I'd say that the 'munchies' kicked in pretty quick if they each ate a dozen cookies.

Scott has come out with a very persuasive opening statement. This is very exciting. Can Gene turn the tide?
He most certainly has! I was particularly impressed with his song writing skills. He's now put the pressure squarely back on Gene. However, here's the danger as I see it in Scott's plan. Maybe the Mormons will enjoy their "evangelical experience" a little too much! He could find his doorbell ringing at all hours of the day and night.

Sorry Gem, I don't have time for office visits right now. I was doing the books and came across a debit entry (not in my handwriting) of three hundred dollars. The description was 'The Hairy Crow.' It didn't dawn on me what this entry was until everyone started talking about the Mormons. Somehow someone took three hundred bucks from the till. I found what I thought was oregano peppered all over one of the counters in the back. People, we have to be more careful with food prep. Please do not leave 'oregano' unguarded.
Freespirit, if you would kindly put two pieces of cake, or whatever it may be, on my desk before you leave tonight, I will enjoy them when I return after hours. I need to 'fix' the books and prefer to do it in a relaxed state of mind. Thanks.
Ok, we'll do the books first then! It's been years since I've had "special" cake, so who knows how I might react! If we don't do the books first, there might be smiley faces all over them where there should be numbers. And it may be done in crayon!

I don't know who the anonymous buffoon might be. I was in the back 'tending' to the books, came out here, and see the fracas. Gene, the mgmt offers its apologies - I have your coffee, cig, and a piece of cake. Where's Scott? We need a bouncer. Maybe Gem would be better.
