I'm not making an argument, I'm stating a fact. Songfight adopted a 3 fight system because the fights were too large when we only had 2 of them. Now we have returned to a 2 fight system because these days dividing the total number of entries split among 3 fights results in fights that are too small. My definition of 'too large' in the context of SongFight is when the fightmasters think the fight is too large; my definition of 'too small' is similar.

Yes. I couldn't find the post on the forum, so it must have been in IRC.

Again J$, don't be silly. I assumed it was you who posted under your name, so I know those are your opinions. And these are my opinions. And this is an intelligent discourse. If two people civilly expressing their contrasting opinions has prompted some fighters to leave then I'm glad they are gone. Obviously I think your opinions are worth discussing; otherwise I wouldn't be posting this.
