Round 1
Forfeited
Published:
The statement 0.9999... = 1 is so uncontroversial among mathemeiticians. The BOP rests in con to show that it is wrong. 


Round 2
Published:
no.

==================================================================
>Reported vote: RationalMadman // Moderator action: NOT removed<
3 points to Pro (arguments). Reasons for voting decision: Yes means yes and no means no. Con says 'no'. Con forfeits Round 1. Pro contradicts 'no' with an almighty 'yes'. Pro states that since the consensus is 0.9r equals 1 (which they didn't prove was the consensus with any reliable source), they have pushed the burden of proof onto Con. Con lost.
[*Reason for non-removal*] The voter examines the sole argument presented in the debate and explains why it, combined with the forfeit, leads Pro to win. The vote is, thus, sufficient.

>Reason for Decision: What participant made more convincing arguments? There was no actual argumentation in this debate. However, Pro pointed out that there is a consensus among mathematicians that 0.9r = 1. While Pro doesn't provide actual evidence for this argument, Con drops it and drops Pro's claim that the burden of proof, therefore, lies on Con. Given these drops, "arguments" points go to Pro.
What participant had better conduct? Con forfeited one round and *effectively* forfeited another. Thus, the conduct point goes to Pro.
>Reason for Mod Action: The voter surveys the main arguments, assesses these arguments, and weighs them to produce a verdict. This suffices to award argument points. A forfeit is sufficient grounds to award conduct, so long as arguments are also explained. The voter is therefore permitted to award conduct.

That's the position I take in this debate, but that doesn't that mean I believe it.

So you believe that .999... is NOT equal to 1?

Make the resolution and take Pro and I'll body you this time.
