Description

In round 1, I will waive and accepter will post a debate topic. I will decide pro/con for myself and argue that side, opponent will argue the other side.

Burden of proof is shared.

The debate will be judged as follows.

Throughout the debate, we will try to "Steal" the opponent's argument from under their nose. This can involve sneakily making them drop points, or convert the points over to your own. The more you steal, the better off you are. Voters are to judge based on impacts of arguments and validity/soundness of them. You may reveal that you stole the arguments at any point, and the opponent may try to refute as usual. Of course, you can try making as little argument as you can, in order to avoid losing the Heist battle.

However, the main argument points (whose argument was better) is still worth 3 points. Sources is now about who won the Heist, rather than whose sources were better. If you must vote on sources, allocate that to Legibility instead, because Legibility is not often used.

Better arguments

Better sources

Better spelling and grammar
1 point(s)
Better conduct
1 point(s)
Reason:

Forfeit by gugigor but conduct tied since both sides FF while RM had actual arguments. Sources tied cause neither side used sources. S/G tied because both = comprehensible
