    I don't debate with Ep's. I watch them intensely from across the room.
    I wait for them to feel the burn, the curiosity to peak, and then I ignore them.

    I find "known" debaters to be disingenuous. It's like they never really care about the topic at hand. It can seem like an artificial struggle to dominate to see who's right or more knowledgeable. If I care about a topic, I'm likely to state my view very passionately, but I never have the intention of changing someone's mind. I find most debates as pointless as a sporting event.

    I move in for the kill. I try to find the weakest point in the argument and dismantle it as quickly and deftly as possible, and then move on.

    i rarely debate for the sake of debating. i debate to get to a point so that both parties can agree on the correct answer. when i debate, im seeking for answers more than seeking to prove the other party wrong. my "debates" are very much like a discussion but if I know the other party is wrong, i will immediately try to prove so.
