    I have a very unemotional, logical way when I debate. I'm really questioning whether this is the best method when discussing topics with 'average people'. On Facebook a topic may come up which interests me and I'll express my views on it. This seems to be resulting in people literally hating me and I never understand how they get so emotionally charged over opposing views. I'm questioning whether I should leave this way for TSR or not...

    How do debate, do you have a certain way, do you dumb down for certain people, be more sensitive for others etc...?

    As an aspiring lawyer, I often try to immerse myself in debating activities at college. I wouldn't really say that I have a debating 'style', as such - I just try to research areas of interest and build arguments according to which side of the debate I'm supporting. However, I must admit, I find it a bit difficult to argue something that I don't necessarily believe in, but I suppose that's part and parcel of being a lawyer. I also try to avoid insulting the opposing team - especially where points are concerned!

    TSR seems to be little more accepting of the 'stiff upper lip' style of debate, at least in the current affairs/society/religion etc. sections.
