>Reported Vote: Raltar // Mod action: Removed

>Points Awarded: 6 points to Pro for arguments, sources, and conduct

>Reason for Decision: I'm a completely new user, so I don't know the backstory on all this drama (please don't tell me, either), nor do I have any grudges to settle.
But here is what I do see:
1. Pro cited a source and also claims to have evidence via private message.
2. Con merely denied everything, had no evidence, cited a random song and then engaged in a long rant before insulting Pro in the last round.
As an impartial observer, Pro made a good argument on his own and Con's bad behavior pushed the argument across the finish line to an obvious win for Pro.

>Reason for Mod Action: In order to award sources points, the voter must "explain how the sources were relevant to the debate. This requires that the voter explain how the sources impacted the debate, directly assessing the strength of at least one source, and explaining how it either strengthened or weakened the argument it was utilized for." The voter did not do this. In order to award argument points, the voter must identify the main arguments and counterarguments in the debate and weigh them to produce a result. The voter did not sufficiently did survey the main arguments of the debate. Finally, to award conduct points, the voter must show that one side was excessively rude (excessive = very frequent or severe). The voter provided no analysis as to the excessiveness of the conduct violations. The voter could cast a sufficient vote by explaining how the sources were relevant to the debate, analyzing at least one source, surveying and weighing the main arguments of the debate, and demonstrating how the conduct violations were excessive.

It seems the mods are more intent on dealing with who votes for what that keeping the site quality content.

Sorry, the mods are intent on making this DDO 2.0.

Added:
--> @Our_Boat_is_Right

This is exactly one of the reasons I left DDO. All the debates were “this person did this and this person did that.” Please keep this site unlike DDO. There are some high quality debates on here, please do not ruin the atmosphere.

Prove I said that with a link, or shut up. I don't know you from Adam, nor do I care about you.

It's her alternate account. You can DM me if you want proof. She admitted it.

I don't think YeshuaBought called you that. I think it was NKJVPrewrather.
