Now that's what I'm talking about. Keep it up and you will earn my respect! (not that that matters). What about when we are absent? I'm going away for a long weekend of steelhead fishing!

Then you inform the moderator and other team of the absence and request a period that the debate be suspended for.

CO could easily debate you guys in a structured, non-divisive manner.

I highly, highly doubt SS will be capable.

Really? I wonder if QB and Sim would agree with you.

@ Kaz: Here is a suggestion, how about if we just treat each other that way in MD? Since I don't know you, I give you the benefit of the doubt and expect that you can, if that is your desire. I promise to treat you with the same respect that you give to me. If I fail then I will publicly apologize.

Not to say that I'm not up for a more structured debate, just that it is unnecessary if we can treat each other with dignity and respect.

Also, I can't speak for CO. So maybe you want to pm him and draw his attention tho this thread.

Well your proposal is basically what the rules already state, so yea. It's not that revolutionary of a concept.

Then how about we give it a try? You and I don't have to continue down the path that we're on. I'm willing if you are.
