So, what we're going to be debating today is whether German is more precise than English. I say, it's not.

Whiteflame the new dictator issues another decree.

My comment was appropriate given the subject matter....More whingers methinks.

Thus proving that they are reliant on English precision.

>Reason for Mod Action:
In a debate where both sides forfeit all rounds, the failure of one side to perform a specific task that the voter imposes on them for no particular reason isn't sufficient to meet the voting standards. Neither side relied on either English nor German because neither side posted. The voter is both arbitrarily imposing a standard and dismissing the obvious forfeits to award one side the win.

Sorry for the forfeit, I forgot about this debate. Would you like to have it again?

If it is or not, it is apparently better for cat calling:
