    Bored and haven't done one of these since coming to DART. Ask me anything.

    How did you come to be involved in online debating sites?

    I did debate in high school and liked DDO for posting my cases and getting attacks on them without having to "show" it to other schools in a round.

    I also wanted to get feedback that didn't involve my teammates to avoid groupthink (since we all had relatively similar ideas on topics) and because I didn't want them to see my cases before state (my partner and I faced one of our other teams in the semi-finals at state, so this was actually a good idea.)

    Did you do mostly debates or were you a forum poster as well?

    Started with debates, in the final couple years of the site I was more active on the forums.

    What debate are you most proud of either here or on DDO?

    Probably in Bsh's DDO Olympics. Much like the world cup or a lot of team sports in the actual Olympics we were put into groups and the person with the highest record after intra-group debates advanced. Being placed with whiteflame and shabshoral, I believed I'd been given a rough draw and didn't expect to advance.

    I won both debates. One on Israel, the other on the death of JonBenet Ramsey. It'd definitely be one of those.

    They are quite challenge opponents, good job in advancing!
