Does debating with the voice in my head count?

Side: Yes

I used to enjoy mooting as a law student. I suppose that is kind of like debating.

Side: Yes
1 point

Absolutely, yes. The primary reason I ended up in online debate forums is because I lost access to my offline forums when I completed my schooling.

Side: Yes

As long as its civil and good points are made, yes. I do PREFER online debate a little though. Its not as easy to cite sources in person, and you have more time to collect your thoughts and prepare your rebuttals in this venue.

Side: Yes

I was going to say yes, but then I had to think a little deeper. Debate club would be something of my interest, but then I have to factor in an average debate. People get upset and hold grudges. People don't like being challenged. I won't enjoy a debate if the participants are enjoying themselves.

Side: No

Are you confusing debate for arguments possibly? Because almost every offline debate I ever participated in was quite civil; you got penalized for poor decorum for starters, and you usually knew the people you were debating and interacted with them on a personal level outside of the debate.

Side: Yes

Yes, most likely. We used to have some debates, but even then the participants don't like being challenged. I believe the debates you have are the ones I seek. I have had a few organized debates. Other debaters end up interrupting each other or dismissing any argument a person tries to make. I know the people I used to debate with, but I haven't joined in their recent "information sharing" sessions.

It is quite difficult (for me) to find worthy opponent. Most of my colleagues and "friend" are uninteresting semi-retarded drones incapable of debating about something different than football, porn or their most recent alcohol infused adventures in close proximity to local pubs.

If you seek people who you can share information with why don't you look for friends who are into debating?

Debating offline does not allow us to speak literally.We can include all the important points to exemplify our opinion but it never allows us to know how to speak in public.

For instance I participated in a debate competition where there was this guy who was against the topic and was literally shouting to prove his point.It was as if he is going to make the opponent stand on the gun point to say "yes you are right".

This behavior should not be there.Debating is always between people who are bound to have varied opinions and one's pitch has nothing to do with proving one's point.

So while it is good going for an offline debate but the ambience,the stress,the energy level everything can't be felt here. So if one wants to have a first hand experience ,then I would say "let your adrenaline rush ,buddy.Go for this competition".

Side: No

People yell and otherwise act terribly online as well. There are plenty of totally pointless and futile exchanges with online debate forums. Actually, more so than I ever encountered with offline debate forums.

Not really, because a lot of the times when I debate people offline they interrupt you, and they end up still talking even when you speak. I usually pick and choose my battles when I'm offline.

Side: No
