Absolutely. I'll start. How in the heck are others approaching the
topicality debate on this resolution? In the past, I've had relevant
terms of art to address, but other than wiping out the obvious regions of
non-topical args (not Title 7, not the CRA, etc.), I've been at a loss
where to begin defining some limits.
Anybody out there got some helpful suggestions? I realize that most
everybody is being pretty tight-lipped heading into next weekend's
debates, but I thought I'd ask anyhow. I'd hate for my best negative
argument to be useless in my senior year :)...

Yo, I'm just wondering, does an argument exist if others don't
I'm seeing a lot of shit here with what people blasting other
I'm also seeing people resolutly impose their feelings on everyone
else. If you disagree with me you are fucking WRONG!!!
Yo people, especially outside of a debate round, it might be
ok to concede and be concillatory. You can't win or lose in
the eyes of officialdom.
I'm going to wait a little longer to see if this stuff continues,
and then bring in a sociologist. Then you all will see (maybe)
a cool new article in the Journal of Sociology about how debaters
interact and establish pecking order.
