The first round will simply be for acceptance, although I do have a few requirements before the debate starts. -Lincoln-Douglas format: Value/Criterion, All contentions must be tied back to value. -Definitions -Good grammar (please.) -Statistics I will allow my opponent to use the bible as a source.

This measure is long overdue: when walking through crowded public...

The effects of social media and networking has a negative effect on the current generation of teenagers. It has mainly become an issue with communication due to the 'face free' interaction that social media sites such as twitter, facebook, and snapchat provide.

My opponent is to post his argument in Round 1. I ask my opponent not to make any kind of argument or rebuttal in Round 4, considering that I'm making no type of argument in Round 1. Burden of Proof is shared by Pro and Con. I ask voters to vote fairly when this debate enters the voting stage. I wish good luck to my opponent, and may the debate begin....
