Great tips!

Hey, just as an aside on the Gish Gallop, I actually heard Gish debate once when I was as child. He came to our town to debate about Creationism, and my parents took me to the venue to listen.

I remember being unimpressed. He talked a lot and had slick slides and used clever turns of phrase, but even at 11, I was aware he wasn’t answering my questions.
