4 chan is the only site for internet superstars.

4chan is family friendly
its portable
its affordable
and
its acceptable by all cultures.

Con

To begin, I will negate my opponent's arguments.

"4chan is the only site for internet superstars" (definition of superstar: any very prominent or successful person or thing) Due to the unclear definition of "internet superstar", I will assume my opponent is regarding to something along the lines of Star Wars kid or Gary Brolsma . The latter of the two was actually released on www.newgrounds.com , so that alone proves this argument void.

"4chan is family friendly" (definition: suitable for the whole family) On the front page of www.4chan.org, there is a category by the name of "Adult", and it is specified as 18+. The "whole family" would include those under the age of 18, so the argument is void.

Due to the lack of time, I will not be able to offer any more arguments until the second round.

Pro

To begin, I will negate my opponent's arguments.

"4chan is the only site for internet superstars"
- I actually mean alot more than just two, and I didn't mean those two. For that you fail.
- I can't believe you brought up newgrounds. Newgrounds is the child of 4chan and Something Awful. Newgrounds is obselete. Stupid. Unimportant. And faggy.

"4chan is family friendly"
- Disregard the fact that they have a lot of yuri and yaoi on the site. Those things are great for the family. Families around the world should partake in the watching and viewing of yuri and yaoi.

Con

To begin, I would like to say that my opponent's insults toward myself and newgrounds were completely uncalled for.

To my opponent's rebutals:

I never said those two people were the ONLY people that you were referring to. In fact, you did not provide an example of an "internet superstar". Second, how was I supposed to know you were not referring to those two? You provided no examples, so you have no grounds to support what you were referring to. I brought up newgrounds to disprove your thesis, "4chan is the only site for internet superstars", by showing an "internet superstar" that did not come from 4chan.org

Disregard the fact that they have a lot of yuri and yaoi? I'm sorry, but when you refer to the WHOLE of 4chan as "family friendly", you cannot simply disregard that part and use the rest as an argument.

Now, to negate my opponent's arguments from the 1st round.

"Its portable" I'd first like to point out the gramatical error, in that "portable" does not belong to "it". The fact that 4chan is portable (if it is portable, that is) has nothing to do with my opponent's thesis, so I will not bother arguing against it.

"its affordable" Same for this statement as in my rebuttal to "its portable"

"its acceptable by all cultures" Quite simply, 4chan DOES include pornographic images, which ARE NOT accepted by all cultures.

I am not going to offer any more arguments regarding the subject, because I feel as though I need not. However, I would like to point out that my opponent's thesis was negated by my arguments in the first round, as well as his arguments which were negated by the lack of evidence as well as my arguments.

I'd like to vote Con simply because I cannot stand the people on 4chan. My ex was involved with the site and it got to the point where her 4chan friends replaced her RL friends. Sad situation.

Although I am a lurker on 4-chan I am voting as a cleaner in this debate.

1. I agreed with Con before the debate
2. I agreed with Con after the debate
3. Pro exhibited poor conduct (insults etc.) however neither exhibited good conduct (closing and ending statements thanking opponents no communication etc.) Therefore the points go to Con because of Pro's poor conduct
4. Con had a more developed vocabularly and organized and structured the debate better, therefore points to Con.
5. Con had much more convincing arguments especially in the instance of pornography (which indeed is present on 4chan). Con also went to disprove a number of Pro's points with minor refutation from Pro.
6. On sources neither provide sources. So a tie for the sources.

Overall, it could have been a better debate.

Well, I suppose technically mass consumption of yuri and yaoi COULD result in families everywhere knowing foolproof birth control methods...
