1. No new arguments in the last round
2. Sources should be posted in the debate rounds, hyperlinked or otherwise
3. Burden of Proof is shared
Nevel... you must carefully analyze any debate before taking it - If you notice - my profile picture and name is in a red rectangle, if a position is against the stated resolution that rectangle will be red, if you are for the resolution the rectangle will be green.Do you then concede?
Theweakeredge: Pro Contender: Con
I will respond to my opponent's mistake -- I say the voters decide - which would you find the greater indicater of my position - the small description which I wrote in error, or the quite obvious red color of my profile picture with the words "Instigator/Con" on them?
It is clear then that if my opponent had actually read the description, or asked for clarification before accepting the debate this could have been easily avoided.
Why should I be punished be deleting a debate where I have already made an argument whenever my opponent is the one who made the greater error?
he admits that the earth is not flat, and took this debate out of error. There was no misleading, only an error, a single glance at the comment section will reveal that I had originally made this debate for RMM, with a different resolution, and I changed it to fit his preference -
If my opponent can't read more than 4 words that's his issue
- that my description was misleading
- that he made this exact same error
