I accept. I'm playing devil's advocate, but this should be fun. For a bit of ease and help, I'd like to ask my opponent to wait a day before posting his argument. Thank you. Also, for a bit of promotion of good debating, I'd like to ask my opponen to not plagiarise his argument when posting.

Quite frankly, I'm not writing out an argument if my opponent is not turning up to debate. Vote CON, unless he comes back.
