      What?

    • Dhruv Walia

      No need to be an asshole kid. He was just talking about something he thought was good for debate

      • Debater

        What did Tomasi say? It doesn’t seem like he’d say anything too radical such that someone would be an asshole about it.

        • Salim Damerdji

          He stepped on Annie Kors’ toes when she brought up student safety at debate tournaments and he wanted to discuss disclosure, but he immediately clarified he didn’t mean to trivialize her issue at all and agreed with her. Other than that, he defended disclosure, being a role-model debater, and LD Leaks pretty passionately. I guess that’s enough justification for socially inept asshats to make fun of someone publically.

          • Debater

            I wasn’t aware of safety issues at debate tournaments, but I guess that is why there needs to be a discussion of it. Do you know what she talked about, because that seems pretty interesting?
