I do agree that, yes not all graffiti is art, but i disagree that all graffiti is vandlism.
Vandalism: willful or malicious destruction or defacement of public or private property
All graffiti is vandalism, because all graffiti is on private property and all graffiti is defacement of said property. If art comes at the expense of others then it is not art at all. Based on the definitions I have presented graffiti has to be vandalism, and thus cannot be considered art.

Do you mean graffiti on public places? Or graffiti just graffiti as a style of art?
This is about graffiti on public places.
noun: graffito; plural noun: graffiti
verb: graffiti; 3rd person present: graffitis; past tense: graffitied; past participle:graffitied; gerund or present participle: graffitiing
This is the definition of graffiti. you'll notice that yes, he dictionary defines it as Vandalism but that is not how you need to look at it! in fact countrys such as Germany enjoy having graffiti on there walls. it is eye catching and colorful. It grings in more and more visitors every year making more money then losing. I would strong erg pleople to vote pro, to show that you cannot steretype something with out knowing the other side

Reasons for voting decision: Con turned that final round back on pro very effectively, in addition to the weakness of trying to bring a new definition into the final round (the final round is usually not the time to bring up new points, as you can't defend them). Leaving conduct tied, merely as an act of compassion, seeing how I rated their final round argument so badly, when it was probably intended to be posted in the missed round.
