2. No personal attacks on other members would be permitted; debaters SHOULD NOT resort to personal abuse or harassment only comments relating to the subject being debated will be tolerated. Do not attack your fellow debaters! Specifically, members SHOULD address the argument and not the poster. Do not let them bait you into a rule breaking reply, if you feel you have been personally attacked call the attention of the Moderator to it so that it can be treated accordingly.

3. Do not assume that opposing teams are personally attacking you. Tone is difficult to interpret online especially in a debate setting.

4. No harsh wording.

Good "morring" Panel of judges, accurate time keeper, co-debaters and the audience

I am here to debate that casava bread is better than wheat bread bla bla bla.

I hope I have been able to "confuse" you that garri is better than bread

OP, Why arent there female in the debaters or why dont we have equal representation of gender?

I nominate female debaters like freecocoa, Ilekeidi, Kobojunkie, tpia, chaircover, jennykadry, tgirl4real, mamagee and michelin
