It's BS. I made that first comment right before I went to bed, and his account said:" last online 5 hours ago". During my lunch break, I checked and got no reply. His account said "last active 2 hours ago". He continued to do this.

I apologize for not being here, but real life stuff got in the way of me posting an argument. I would like to agree on a tie for this debate and then debate you later on the same topic in a new debate.

Hey, can we agree to tie on this debate, and then do another debate on the same topic later?

Real life stuff got in the way here.
