Those to timid to engage in debate should refrain from mocking those brave enough to learn , a person learns more from defeats than from victory, i'm learning growing stronger, one day i will own this place

Reason:

The resolution has some validity to it, people unwilling to debate should likely refrain from insulting those who do... However the debate did not touch on that subject. "Anyone brave enough to engage a battle deserves respect whether or not they win" can be completely true, but not touch on the subject of people who aren't so brave (as per the resolution).

Con points out the missing context, and suggests it was a direct challenge to him for some argument in a comment section. If this was a call-out debate toward con, that he is both cowardly and a loser would need to be shown; if not, so some example of those people should still be used, along with some explanation (even if it seems self evident) of benefits for them or others were they to just shut up (personally, I would have argued them debating would be what they should do, with con as a good example of the benefits to rising to the challenge)
