LlamaMan

Con

I don't troll people
MikeyMike

Pro

Before we begin, allow me to define a few terms.

I: "LlamaMan", Con

Troll: One who makes online posts (usually for the purpose of self enjoyment) that incite, anger, irritation, arguments, and disruptions.

People: "MikeyMike" Pro

My opponent trolled me on one of my previous debates, which can be found here: http://www.debate.org...
Debate Round No. 1
LlamaMan

Con

I did not troll you I simply accepted your debate and invited you to make the first argument.
My intent was to start a debate not incite anger so therefore I am not a troll.
MikeyMike

Pro

My opponent did not dispute my definitions I posted in the previous round, meaning he accepts them

Nowhere in my definition does it state a troll has to have to intent to incite anger, arguments, disruptions, etc.

He incited anger in me, irritated me, and disrupted my debate, whether or not he did this intentionally is irrelevant.

I keep getting trolled...

And I suspect it's by the same person, but just with multiple accounts.

This topic would be great to have an actual debate on.

Mikeymike is a negative nelly, taking everthing super seriously. Vote for the only person who is positive and is trying to defend their decision to accept a debate.

Reasons for voting decision: Counter netsky, and the counter to the counter by ino. Inabench didn't have an RFD related to the debate. So countering 1.5 people.

Reasons for voting decision: I saw the debate unfold. It was an obvious troll. But nobody really made a good argument for/against it. So I can't really give any side too many points. S/G to mikey at most?

Reasons for voting decision: Countering imabench. Yeah, that's something I don't say too often! The vote made no attempt to engage with the debate at hand but rather showed clear signs of being influenced by prior bias. Pity pro provided such a terrible framework for the debate - ALL debates "incite arguments" but not all debates are trolled. Pro's sole argument was thus self-refuting, and not clearly articulated until after con could not respond.
