Round 1
Published:
I thank RM for debating with me today. Since I deleted my argument (as I assumed RM would no longer be active on this site), I will provide my new argument on this google doc. I ask RM to please post his initial argument after mine is completed, thank you.

Published:
I do not actually owe you anything and if I cared about this debate truly, I'd be throwing a tantrum about your tantrum and making it clear that your laziness is inexcusable regardless of what you believed I would or wouldn't do.

The fortunate thing for us both is that this debate is unrated and also that upon second thought, I realised just how many people I'd be putting under a spotlight and how much of a threat I'd become to authorities by posting this in such a public manner.

Some things are 'never go back'. A good lesson in life is to never ever post something online, especially in public forums, that you'd regret 'never going back' on. I'm wise and old enough to never ever make this error going forth and me not bothering to have this debate is one of them.

Feel free to say 'he doesn't really believe it', feel free to say 'he's too dumb to defend it' both are what the authorities will be happy you think and happy that I let you think.

If you really are interested in whether or not it was a Hoax, start with this video:


I thank him for his bravery, I do not intend to ever become even slightly famous for my theories anymore and honestly am quitting online debating in general. My professional, emotional/romantic and even intellectual/private life/world are altering and I could even say getting more vivid and rich. I have little interest in typing away in a way that both makes powerful people hate me for writing well/informative and makes people who hate me on this website able to hand me a loss, regardless. I wouldn't care about the loss and made this debate be unrated intentionally so it would only matter how much truth I spread but in hindsight it would have been wiser to go 'naww dude, I believe none of that shit!' That's right, the moon landing was real and I just bullshitted my beliefs on this website. ;) ;)

Enjoy being sheep, at least the shepherds of this world will not come for you.

Conceded debates aren't moderated under the extended moderation guidelines insofar as the "balance of votes" do not favor the conceded party. I cited it. The same rules are in the standard voting guidelines.
"Similarly, a conceded debate is any debate in which on side clearly concedes the debate to their opponent. These debates are considered conceded debates and are not moderated unless a voter votes for the side that concedes."
I understand your concerns and perhaps this can be a new MEEP, but I did as the guidelines suggested.

>Reason for Mod Action: Moderation Extended Policies Subsection B1 part IV states that unless the balance of points are in favor of the conceded party, the debate is not moderated. Unless something else takes precedence, (i.e. a user is voting who doesn't have voting privileges,) this vote cannot be removed.

It was pleasant to make this a lesser priority in my life while enough of a priority to be enjoyed by me.

1) They are not the authorities im referring to.
2) I meant Nixon, not that Reagan was better.

I'm not going to use appeal to authorities in my argument. That's a fallacy, and I don't do those.
