it seems that people on here believe that only established authors allowed to debate their works/ideas on DDO
I disagree

Notice that my opponent did not state WELL-establish authors. They only stated established authors.

Anyone who writes an argument is an author of that arguments; they are established by the viewing of the debate.

again another smart as.. who try to avoid the debate by semantic intricacies-a sure sign that they are afraid to engage honestly

so come on and state you position
since being con you obviously believe only established authors allowed to debate their works/ideas on DDO regardless of how you try and weasel out of saying that by your semantic bull sh..t

Very poor conduct and gramar on Pro's part. I also see neither sources nor arguments.

I think I got a 7 pointer. Easy win, easy life.

only because the people on here are sheep and will give you victory even though you have not presented any real arguments to prove your position-just indulged in semantic bull sh..t
and you are that dishonest you will accept winning even on sham arguments
what a joke

Con you didn't post an argument. You could have said he intentionally misinterpreted the resolution and than argued. Why didn't you?
