    What's next the World Championships in Hindi? Mandarin? Indonesian? French? ... This has to stop! The titles will become meaningless if every region or language community proclaims itself to have the WORLD champions in their midst.

    I seriously doubt that tournament will be of any match to WUDC standard. I'd love to see the org and A-team names.
    No offence, but there's NO SINGLE debater from Kyrgyzstan or even Kazakhstan who ever attended WUDC.
    At best what they can do is to finally bring in some good trainers and coaches to teach them real debating - now there are "own" rules of the game with very specific understanding of what debating is.

    the arrogance here is staggering.

    When people start putting political agenda and self-interest ahead (or even instead) debating, that can't but raise arrogance in true debaters

    I like how there're people anointing themselves 'true' debaters. Care to elaborate on where the rest of us sign up?
