DerKurbis

Pro

Round 1: Acceptance (NO arguments from whoever accepts)

Round 2-3: Speeches

Round 4: Final Rebuttal

No Trolling or Forfeiting

I will be debating as Pro; Debates on DDO are getting more unsophisticated is the motion.

Thank you to whoever accepts.

Thank you to Pro for instigating this debate, I look forward to debating it with you.

The BoP is solely on Pro since Pro is making the claim, that, "Debates on DDO are getting more unsophisticated". Pro has sole BoP to affirm this claim, and I merely have to show that the reasons Pro presents are false or invalid.

I would like to propose no new arguments in the final round (R4), and request that voters merely vote on the arguments presented, and thus only the "convincing arguments" part of the 7 point system.

Debates on DDO: Any debate that was created, and accepted on Debate.org.

Unsophisticated: being simple and uncomplex; childish.

Pro must propose a time that is a significant time away from the status quo to compare to.

Thank you, and I look forward to Pro's arguments.

Well, I'm surprised this happened. Before accepting I checked to make sure my opponent was active. Ilk wait for my opponent to come back. Blank

I changed it. I was thinking of something else when I put low-brow. Sorry about any confusion.

Ah, you beat me to it.

Low-Brow is very cheap, and stupid. If comedy is low-brow, it's more than likely slap stick and toilet humor rather than high-brow, which is more intelligent comedy, or in this case, discussion.

Amen. Today's debates are, well, we now know where to buy black magic to bring back our long lost lover. You'll encounter this troll soon enough.

Kind of a self fulfilling statement.

I haven't been here long enough to know - but I don't know what you mean by "low brow"

Define what you mean by "low-brow" I am unfamiliar with the phrase.

Reasons for voting decision: BOP was on pro and he never made an argument for his case. I'd rather vote a point on conduct because of all the forfeited rounds, but in the R1 acceptance Con suggested that voters only vote on the convincing arguments; since BoP was on Pro and he made no arguments I feel okay voting for Con in that category even though he didn't make any arguments either.
