[eDebate] topic

maybe....the topic committee was not willing to "write out topicality debates."  that is one reason there are two options with fewer than a gazillion words (and the list is reasonable as far as lists go).  I think you'll find lots of healthy disagreement on the committee, but it's really the words that matter at this point....

in fact, there may be a way to read a number of cases into the list (#3) that would not be topical under #1 or #2.

I wasnt in Winston-Salem and was not on the topic committee, even though my name is still listed on the website as so.  Since I wasnt there or in on the discussions, I have a question for those in the know.

In the opinion of the committee are the cases in the list in #3 all also topical under #1?

Topic Three is perfect. It is a perfect example of why decisions by
consensus usually lead to the worst results.

What will discussion on edebate yeild? There are only three topics to
choose from and the choices are not much.

I would just like an explanation of why we needed a list resolution
with 86 words on this topic.

I hope that, eventually, the community will elect people to Topic
Committe who are opposed to list topics.
