The Great Debate (hopefully better then the last) should have new ground rules to insure it stays that way. Here are just a few.
(1) CUT THE MIC- When one individual has their time then the other’s microphone is turned off and vice versa. Interruptions might still occur but they’ll be a whole lot distracting.
(2) ANSWER THE QUESTION- The moderator will be able to repeat the question if it hasn’t been answered directly by the debater . The moderator will have to insure that they clarify the question to the debater. While the debater will 1/2 the time to respond. If the don’t answer by the 2nd time the moderator will note this occurrence.
(3) THE QUESTION- Each side will give the moderator 2 questions that they want their opponent to answer.
(4) LAST WORD- When an individual takes a personal attack by the other . The other individual will have a 1 minute to respond accordingly.
