Pro

This is quite simple. Two friends created their own special account on a website. One used "Barry" as their user name and the other used "Parry." If you had to choose either, or? Which name would you have chosen.

Con

I would choose Parry.

Here is my reasoning:

1. Barry is a more popular name than Parry; I'm sure the username of "Barry" already exists somewhere on that website

2. Assuming that the username "Barry" does not currently exist on the website (yet), it is reasonable to assume that there as at least one member there with the name Barry who... might get confused? Hey - ya never know!

3. The definition of parry is to ward off... which is what my original intention of accepting this debate was: to ward it off!

In conclusion, vote CON if you think this was a pointless "debate" and that the instigator is a total tool for making a mockery of this site and himself. Oh, and that I did better than him with my "arguments" and yada yada yada.

Reasons for voting decision: f16 really needs to get over people voting for themselves. It was allowed when she placed the vote, so he can't retroactively penalize Danielle for it.
