Being wrong makes you an idiot. It is better to be right all the time, because that's where all the knowledge and wisdom lie.

3 points to Con. Reasons for voting decision: Nobody used sources, and both people had ok spelling/grammar. Con made a more convincing argument, though - of making mistakes and learning from them.

[*Reason for removal*] The voter is required to specifically assess points made by both sides. This requires looking at Pro"s as well, yet the voter only assesses Con"s.

Isn't being wrong a part of learning? Thus becoming "less stupid" for it?
