Linda’s Rules For Debates

My rules, if I had been running the debate:

  1. Turn off the mic of the person who is not supposed to be talking.
  2. After the respondent’s time is up, turn off that person’s mic.
  3. If the respondent did not answer the question that was asked, point that out and if time remains allow them to continue.
  4. Don’t allow the respondent to deny reality. Lead the question with the video showing what was actually said and require them to respond to that.

Debates that devolve into verbal free-for-alls have zero value.
