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.
