    What happened to the video of Noah v Farhan????????

      My understanding is that one of the pro-disclosure teams wasn’t quite so pro-disclosure.

        To be fair, there are some qualitative differences between being filmed and having one’s arguments posted (both in terms of the law and in terms of exposure to the debate world). 

        It would be great if everyone were okay with the practice of being filmed–it seems the actual consent was muddled in this case–but I respect the right for parties to opt out if they wish; nobody’s videos will be posted against their will. So when I was contacted for a removal because it was unclear whether Farhan consented, I removed the video.

          What exactly are the qualitative differences? Posting rebuttal strategies seems to reveal most everything that a video can. If anything, those who run ldleaks should be ENCOURAGING more videos taken against debaters consent, theres no more full disclosure then that.

            It is against the law to film someone without their consent in Massachusetts, particularly if distributed online. It is not illegal to discuss their arguments (at least not as clearly illegal).

            That is one; there are others I will not go into. 

            Basically, I do not believe in using force or violating consent in the debate space. Whether or not it’s inconsistent for a team to post info on LD Leaks and to refuse filming is another issue, but I choose to respect the right of consent in both instances.

            I respect your decisions in choosing which videos to put up, and I do not wish to argue with you. This is mainly directed at those who requested the video down in the first place, not you.
