UtherPenguin

Failure to abide by the format or terms of the debate will result in a loss of conduct during voting stage. If Con finds the terms to be unreasonable or inaccurate then he or she may alter the terms, but only with an argument as to why. Burden of Proof is on both sides. Terms: Overpopulation: Overpopulation is a function of the number of...
