I am interested in clear and logical debates.  Evidence should be used to support but should not drive the argument.

The quality of evidence trumps quantity. I am looking for warrants that logically tie strong evidence to the claim. 

Civility is a must during crossfire. While sarcasm is appreciated snark is not.

The pace should be deliberate. Speaking too fast or too slow is not preferred.  if I can't understand you, or the pace drags it will count against you.

Timeliness is important,  going over time constraints will count against you.

 

As a historian, historical parallels are always a bonus.
