live debates are a fucking awful way of mediating who has a better opinion in general. they suck.

here's a scenario: your opponent cites some obscure figure they've completely decontextualised/manipulated to fit their argument. you haven't heard of this statistic. i mean, why would you have? it's irrelevant! but how are you meant to respond to their citation if you have zero knowledge of its source? live debates don't just allow these tactics to be used, they actively incentivise them!
