Everything

Pro

Bad is same as good.
fire_wings

Con

BoP is fully on Pro. Pro fails to fill it, vote for Con.

Bad is different from good, the opposite

Bad: low or poor in quality, not correct

Good: High of quality, correct and proper.


If you look at these definitons, bad is the opposite of good.

5 points to Con (Arguments, Sources). Reasons for voting decision: Pro just said bad equals good without further context. Con gave dictionary definitions of why bad doesn't equal good. Technically Con had better conduct, but I'm not giving out that point to anyone. Con does get most reliable sources and convincing arguments though.

[*Reason for non-removal*] Pro provides reason to believe that only one side provided any basis for winning points. While the voter doesn't directly state why they are giving sources to Con, the reasoning is nonetheless there in the form of the definition. That is still sufficient reasoning for awarding the point, as that's also a reason for the win on arguments.

Admittedly, with debates like this, it can be difficult to know whether or not it's a troll debate, but in this case I'd say that since Con took the debate seriously, the debate is moderated.

I thought we didn't need rfd's for troll debates?

5 points to Con (Arguments, Sources). Reasons for voting decision: con made better arguments, and was the only one to use sources.

[*Reason for removal*] (1) The voter merely restates the decision on arguments without explaining why Con had better arguments. (2) Sources are insufficiently explained. The presence of sources on one side may be reason enough to award these points, but the voter has to state how they contributed to the debate.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro brings up zero arguments. The only thing Pro says is a bare assertion. Con shows links to Dictionaries that prove bad is not the same as good. Since Pro has 0 arguments, and Con has a argument, Con wins by default. Thus arguments to Con.
