It is the end which is important and not the means
asiansarentnerdy

Con

The end may not be worth considering the means, which makes the means all the more important.

For example, if I wanted to kill the general of an army, but to do so I would also have to kill the entire army and its surroundings, then the end would also make the means unjustified.

If you do more pain by the means then the good that might come from the ends, then the end is not worth it.

Therefore, it is the means that are more important and not the ends, as the means determine the usefulness of the end.

The only thing I can think of is just to waste people's time. This user and another user keep posting the same debate. It would be different if people want to debate another person about the same topic.

Okay serious how can asiansarentnerdy debate if her opponent doesn't post anything? Well anything to debate about, from the looks of it Asiansarentnerdy will win because she said more than 7 words. Con wins Pro loses, wake me up when this "debate" ends.
