You may choose a topic to argue about and I will argue against it. Only one rule: nothing historical or political. I will argue about anything else though....

PREFACEI agree, I have lost fair and square to Bsh1 in a debate about a topic similar to this one. Bsh1 is Bsh1 is Bsh1 is too awesome for the likes of 9spaceking. But--I have been losing debate after debate. Even troll debating, it seems, for me, I have lost my charm and I've been losing to Malacoda. It seems that even within a noob-snipe, I am failing to achieve my goal. Thus it has been decided--I must do a revenge debate! RULES ...

Debate.org should maintain it's policy of deletion

thett3
thehumanistpreacher

Thanks in advance to my opponent for accepting. In the forums, my opponent has contended very strongly that DDO should implement a policy he terms "Free debates" where no debates or threads are deleted. I invite him to defend this proposition. Since my opponent is the one advocating a change in the status quo but I'm the affirmative, the burden of proof will be shared. What a shared burden of proof means is that rather than the judge defaulting to one side, both sides are obliga...
