Ate you're homework, you're 63 years old!-https://www.debate.org/billsands/

Also, is there any evidence of you're misfortunes, it looks like you're making it up.

Last, redoing debates is unfair without opponent's consent because he could be gone or on a break.

Reason:This is PRO''s most engaged argument which is saying almost nothing. I think PRO is arguing for a DART policy change to resubmit forfeited debates but he never describes his intention. Still CON skips PRO's plan and goes straight to challenging evidence- which might have worked out if PRO hadn't given a reasonable plan for verification (would have been better if he'd linked to cable provider himself- source points!) and CON hadn't forfeited the final four rounds while finishing with an excuse for forfeit that plays as better evidence for PRO than CON. Args to PRO. Conduct to PRO for CON's forfeits.

Your profile says your from france and you have hinted strongly at being not american. Now you say east side of cleveland....
I dont think it would be wise to use yourself as a premise in an online debate, you will have to disclose an uncomfortable amount of information. Without this information however, your personal circumstances are unproveable, and thus irrelevant. Chock it up to luck. If this seems unfair, atleast be thankful you arent part of the majority born to a 3rd world or autocratic nation. :D

con can verify my excuse simply by calling spectrum customer service and asking about the outages on east side of cleveland, that way my private stuff stays private, which is my right

Better conduct 1 point
Reason:
While the resolution is invalid and unsound, con dropped out and did not extend his points when he returned.
I did not see any points advance things in either direction (Dogs eating homework and Bsh1 eating homework, seem pretty interchangeable excuses which don't touch upon it).
So rematches can be done easily, and if your opponent is nice, admins are willing to delete the old debates if both sides agree to it.
