translation of title: unless it's a video debate, debates shouldn't be allowed to have 100 max characters per round. (meaning that DART should increase this limit)

Opponent may not argue that 100 max characters is too few even to link to video debates, that is not the topic.

Video-based debate: A link on youtube (or some other site) which holds the two people having the discussion and the link is copy pasted onto DART. This is the only reason I can see for 100 max characters.

Round 1
Pro
avg word 5 char, avg essay need at least 200~300 words [v.gd/argsh]. 100 char too few for good arg!!
Con
This syllogism is a good 65c arg:



Round 2
Pro
one arg usually no good for entire debates (cherry pick possible). Abbrev. make debates informal, too
Con
1 arg usually no good

Abbr make debates informal
Round 3
Pro
debate teach critical think, structure&org. thoughts, li'l improve with only one sentence.
Con
  • If PRO's arg persuades, PRO disproved
  • If CON persuades, PRO stands likewise disproved
  • Pls. VOTE CON
