I am pretty much against it. I don't much suffer from stage fright - in past years I have been a regular lecturer and teacher of university students.

Those debates were on specific topics, and time could be taken to respond. Spoken debates are about pace. They aren't usually about exploring issues, but about making the best impression.

It reminds me of Scott Adam's assessment of who usually wins presidential elections - the one who is tallest and with the best hair.
