I am new to this site
Debate Rounds (3)
I look forward to hearing my opponent's counter-argument
However, my opponent cannot prove that he has never before been to this site. He may have joined as a member recently, but he can't support his claim that he has just clicked on this site and should be considered new.
It is quite plausible that my opponent has been to this site many times; this debate only regards himself being new to the site, not his membership.
Lack of proof points to Con.
I accept the validity of your point: despite my assurance that it is not the case, I may have visited this site before. However, it is evident from my profile that I only joined one hour ago (correct at time of writing) and as such my belonging to the site, through membership, is in its infancy.
Making the statement that "I am new to the site" correct.
"I may have visited this site before." Ding ding - not necessarily new to the site.
Your membership is new to this site, but not necessarily yourself. You admit that you may have been to this site before. Hence, although your membership is new to the site, you are not, since you have been on here before.
I have refuted my opponent and negated the resolution.
"I am new to the site" is negated. Thank you.
I would suggest that instead of trying to get me to provide support for a claim which I have not made, my opponent should attempt to provide evidence contrary to the join time on my profile.
I would suggest that in further debates, my opponent tries to either a) create a debate that is less lopsided OR b) clarifies the meaning of the debate.
I urge a Con vote. Thank you.
