I never met Bob Jordan in person, but he and I exchanged emails dozens of times with regards to debate and our shared interest in creating online debate communities. It was reported today on PFDebate.com that Bob passed away due to a massive heart-attack. There are no plans to continue.
Dear PFDebate Community,
It is with great regret that I inform all of you that PFDebate will no longer be publishing any handbooks. Robert Jordan, the owner and sole operator of PFDebate suffered a massive heart attack on Monday morning and has passed away.
More information will be coming soon. Please bear with us as we begin the process of putting his affairs in order.
All the best,
The debate community will miss him dearly. He was a pioneer in Public Forum debate.
