Con

Rules: If you join this debate, you automatically loose.
Mister_Man

Pro

Thanks for creating such a fascinating debate.


Quantum space-time continuum


You "joined" before I did. Therefore, you concede before I did, and therefore I was winning (or won) for a longer amount of time than you were winning/won.


Loose

You also "loose" this debate because you joined before I did.


Conclusion


Even if we both lost because we both joined, you joined before I did, therefore you lost before I did, and therefore I won before you did.


Thanks for a thrilling debate, it really got me thinking.

Haha fair enough, that backfired so hard lol. Really though, I am impressed how you turned that around on me.

"Automatically loose" is more than improper grammar, and is (was) safe to assume that it was a typo or misspelling. I can still argue that considering you created the debate, you accepted before anyone else.

Actually, the rule was if you join this debate you automatically loose, not lose. And according to the title, you must accept to concede, which I didn't, but Pro did.

The rule is very clear: "If you join this debate you automatically lose".

The rule did not say "If I (the instigator) join this debate, I lose. Nor did it say whoever is in this debate loses.

Therefore, the contender loses for he joined the debate.

Reasons for voting decision: Lol, well played by Pro. Challenged on "loose", and joining time. The latter is unsound since the rules seemed to only apply one-way, but the "loose" point would succeed otherwise.
