9spaceking

Con

The resolution is simple. "9spaceking is CON in This Particular Debate". "This particular debate" refers to this exact debate which you are currently reading. The link can be found here: http://www.debate.org... CON means "the opposing side of the resolution", while PRO means the side going for the resolution. So PRO has to prove 9spaceking is in fact CON in this debate while all I have to do is to give sufficient proof that 9spaceking isn't CON in this debate..
First round acceptance.
BoP is shared.
Aerogant

Pro

You're not Pro, therefore Con.

Con

This debate was supposed to be impossible for Aerogant to accept, but whatever. As can be seen from this debate I am "con", not "CON", therefore I am not CON in this debate but rather "Con".


See? "Con", not "CON". Therefore I have fulfilled my BoP and shown that I ain't CON in this debate, but rather "Con" in this debate.

Pro

Yelling a word in caps like "CON" does not mean that "CON" and "Con" are two different words.

Nice try though. You remind me of my younger years when I trolled instead thinking about the Universe.

So let's say your name is Herman Schmidt. If I said "HERMAN SCHMIDT", you would not say "I am not HERMAN SCHMIDT. I am Herman Schmidt". No, you would see it as emphasis, because that's what capital letters are: emphasis. A fat person is still a human being, their aesthetics were enlarged, that's it. "CON" is still "Con".

Con

It can be different if you say it in a different way. For example if I yell CON I might be inferring sarcasm and actually mean to say "pro". Besides, that screenshot was a bug, a glitch, an error. Proof after a refreshing shows that I am actually Pro in this debate.

See? I am in reality Pro, not CON.
Thus, I have fulfilled my BoP to show that in fact, I am not CON in this debate, but rather Pro.

Pro

If you're going to photo shop a picture, you could have changed "The Instigator" with "The Contender" to make it more convincing, instead of simply switching the colors.

When it comes to sarcasm, you cannot definitively argue false intentions in the first place.

Con

What do you mean?? The instigator means the one who starts the debate, and the contender means the one who goes against what the instigator has to say. It looks perfectly fine to me. You're just jealous you don't know how to take a screen-shot. The picture is obviously not photo-shopped.
Vote me.
Aerogant

Pro

You forgot to switch the borders. Why is this important? Because if you were to scroll down that picture, you'll see that it's "Con, Pro...", not "Pro, Con...", which shows that you are Con, as well as "CON", as the letters are simply emphasized, not changed.

Again, nice try. But I used to be a troll like you. I had troll friends and was well known for my trolling ability. I was known as the best troll in the world. Now, I'm known as an idiot.

I have a strong feeling more people are biased against Aero than against you. But people with higher ELO can't be biased?

I actually have to vote for Aero on this one. " "9spaceking is CON in This Particular Debate"." "CON means "the opposing side of the resolution"". If Pro is to show 9space is Con, and Con is to shower 9space is NOT con...9space stated in actuality he is Pro. Thus he is affirming his opposite-side of the initial resolution. While all very confusing, I still believe Aero is the winner.

But I am not allowed to vote. Which I find very unfair
