Debate: What are some good ways to respond to a question without giving it a dir

  • 1 Replies
Since silence can be interpreted and in a way that the person has not read/heard/understood the question or has read/heard/understood it but chose to ignore it, what are the best ways to give a response, showing that that is not the case, and remain polite, although still not answering the question itself?

Be honest?  Answer to the best of your understanding and await a rebuttal/discussion?
