Debate.org should not demand your cell phone number to access certain features.

Metaright
BangBang-Coconut

In this debate, I will argue that needing to provide your cell phone number to access certain features is inappropriate for a website such as Debate.org. 1. Some people may not have a cell phone Not everyone has a cell phone, contrary to what most Americans (who are all close-minded in this respect) think. There is not a need for some people to have one. 2. Having to borrow the cell phone of a friend/family member is an outrageous solution This is just an unnecessary and outrageous s...

Debate.org version 3 will more likely than not be up and running by the time this debate concludes.

It is within my belief that debate.org version 3 will be up and running by the time this debate concludes. To define what I mean by this, I'm saying that the chances of debate.org version 3 being accessible before or at the time this debate concludes are at least 51%. Just to insure that this won't be a wait fest, I'll go ahead and provide a contention. For now, my one and only contention shall be that the webmaster stated that version 3 would be up by the end of July. Given that it is lon...

I'm outraged by this statement. This statement is basically saying that everything that people have put into creating this technology, and upgrading it is a waste. But I'm here as a voice. I'm here as a voice to the technology creators, nerdlings all over the world who are obsessed with gamingthe most important people of all – US – high school kids who need to do their assignments, and hand them in on time. Us, who need to know who feel a Need to share every thought or every "awkward moment" we...

PS3 is better than XBOX

First off, let me just say thank you to whoever is up against me for this debate. Also, I hope to have this debate go: Round 1 - Opening Statements Round 2 - Rebuttals Round 3 - Closing Arguments... Here we go: The PS3 is by far better than the XBOX in many ways. Firstly, a PS3 can show BluRay discs, without any downloads or expansions. Also, the PS3 comes with WiFi connectivity included, so no need to buy an adapter or anything like that. Also, a PS3 includes multiple decent games, th...
