Linux is better than Windows

Linux has several advantages. It is more secure, offers more choice, and is open source. It is more secure because it is UNIX-based. UNIX was designed with multiuser security in mind. Linux also offers more choice. For example, see the numerous desktop environments and distributions. The fact it is open source allows for further customization....

Debate.org user's need to rethink some things

Darth_Grievous_42
revleader5

I'll first clarify that I love this site. This argument is one that's been going on in my head ever since I started noticing some distressing trends in the debates throughout the site. The user's need to rethink several aspects of how they use this great site. Here are my main pet peeves: 1) Voting - While I can't be 100% certain, it seems very clear that some of the voting tends to be bias. Many of the votes seem to lean toward the more socially acceptable side, or whichever one they person...

Mobile Phone Confirmation?

This is more of a question than a debate. Why does the site make you give your phone number to access certain features? Which features are they? I am against the mobile phone confirmation. CONTENTION I: I don't have a cell phone....

I will not win the upcoming tournament on this site.

Pluto2493
Cooperman88

First let me say that ny position is that I can not win the tournament. With that said, here are my reasons why: 1. I have little experience; a more experienced or smarter debater could eaisly beat me. 2. In debates, I frequently make unwarranted claims and hope something sticks. Most of my arguments are hard to read and pointless. 3. Me han conocido para discutir en espaƱol. 4. There are WAY better debaters than me, and I will likely lose the first round to Logical-Master. 5. Me...

Abandoned websites should be taken down.

Renzzy

There are 162,662,052 websites on the Internet, yet only 65,600,000 of them are active.* The others just take up valuable server space. They are also very irritating because they clog up the search engines, making it difficult to "sort the wheat from the chaff". For example, take a look at this online outrage: http://www.geocities.com/brian_eggleston/ This insult to the Internet hasn't been updated for over five years, yet if you Google "comedy scripts" it's right up there with prope...

The Internet brings more harm than good

Good morning I bid to the Madam Speaker, righteous adjudicators, honourable timekeeper, my fellow comrades, doomed adversaries, and members of the floor. I am here today as the Prime Minister of the government bench to construct the debate on the topic the Internet brings more harm than good. The parameter of this topic is global. The Internet's definition by wikipedia is a "network of networks". The Internet has brought a lot of good points, but as with any tool, I would like to add that...
