Alright... I'm gonna vote like a policy judge. PRO, you had a resolution, yet you failed to prove how it was true. As upholder of the "status quo" All CON had to do was nothing. Since you didn't prove to me why you needed to win this round, I'm gonna decide to make no change and vote CON

If no one debates its a tie. Because he said he could WIN that means I win.

What is the point of this debate exactly? I think I missed it...

And because of the resolution that he could WIN. It should be a tie which would mean I proved him wrong.

Since Con and Pro both didnt argue. This debate should result in a tie. While Pro's debate topic is logicaly correct, he didnt argue it. Con had to prove otherwise, however he didnt, resulting on a tie.

If everyone forfeits pro should automatically win as he followed the premise of his debate. If Con does not argue, he is handing the debate over to pro. I will not vote, however. I think there should be a kiddie version of debate.org for idiotic debates such as this one.

This is useless. Debate is occurring in the comments instead of the debate rounds. This debate fails.

And how delightfully zero sum... why must there be a winner in order to lose? If I destroy the earth with nuclear bombs, I lose, and there is no winner :D

"
However, once again, yes, PRO doesn't fulfill his side of the topic through tying "

Pro failing to fulfill = Pro losing. :P

"Law of non-contradiction-- the debate is doing it wrong."

Oh I agree with that. It's just that I disagree with you equating a tie to a loss. A tie is neither a win nor it is a loss. In order to lose, there must be a winner. In order to win, there must be a loser. If there is neither, then no party has won or lost.

However, once again, yes, PRO doesn't fulfill his side of the topic through tying (nor through not arguing, but that's another matter).
