  4. It's fun to be able to name the common debate fallacies.

  5. Not all debate techniques work with all debates.

  6. Argument From Authority no longer works now that Google is the ultimate authority.

  7. All debates devolve into name-calling eventually.

  8. Trolling can be as satisfying to do as it is infuriating to experience.

  9. Brigading is highly effective at stifling debate and it's easy.
