Anyway, we need a judge and/or MC. I propose Uccisore.

j/k. Mr. Reasonable, any interest?


I propose Gib or WWIII.


I will be honored to judge the debate impartially.

To confirm, here's the outline as I understand it:
Claim: "Humans are livestock"
Arguing in favor: HaHaHa
Opposing: Carleas

Format: 7 posts total, three from Hahaha and four from Carleas, as follows:
Post #1) Carleas (100-150 words)
Post #2) Hahaha (200-300 words)
Post #3) Carleas (200-300 words)
Post #4) Hahaha (200-300 words)
Post #5) Carleas (200-300 words)
Post #6) Hahaha (200-300 words)
Post #7) Carleas (100-150 words)

Participants will have 3 days for their posts measured from whenever their opponent last posted, except the 1st and 7th posts for which Carleas will have 1 day.

No images are to be used in the debate.

Honorable and Impartial Judge: WW_III_ANGRY

If that's all right, I'll start the threads after I get confirmation and post my first post 1 day later (since I'm only writing a half-post).

I second that, but I guess WW_III beat me to it.

Carleas, it should be known in our conversation that I don't classify all human beings as livestock but instead just a majority only.

Those that are not livestock are either farmers or plantation owners. Keep this in mind during your constructed openings.

Of course all of this is metaphors dealing with the human hierarchy itself.

No worries, your judge duties don't kick in until the end of the debate, so you've got plenty of time to recover from the dentist.

How can this be fair; when Carleas gets the first word and the last?

In my defense I'll note that I suggested HaHaHa take firsts and lasts, so I wasn't trying to pull a fast one on anybody.

And I actually do think this is fair in principle, though in practice it didn't feel that way. If the posts were longer, and the opening and closing were a little less than half the length of a normal post (more like a third), I think it would be fair. Just need to turn some dials to find the sweet spot.
