My suspicion is great. My suspicion is very strong. I would like to point out that should no one challenge my suspicion then it will be seen as true.

I have a greater suspicion than my opponent that I will be vote bombed. I was vote bombed on a recent debate in which my opponent forfeited every round. I was bombed within 24 hours with a score of 35-0 (that's five accounts vote bombing me). A few days later I posted my debate on the forums and the debate.org community rallied to my cause and voted me up, making it 35-69. As of today, I am again losing the debate 105-69. Note also that debates with forfeits do not appear amongst other finished debates. I am clearly a target, and I am certain I will lose this debate.

The irony here is that whoever gets the fewest votes wins in principle.

Not necessarily what I wanted the debate to be about, but it's not like I care given that I merely came to debate in the first place.

Ladies and gentleman, this round will be swift as I have seemingly conclusive evidence that shall cause my opponent to lose ALL suspicion of the idea that he shall be vote bombed. If you would be so kind, I would like for you all to direct your attention to the debatefans.com comment section and note the following words from the obsessive nut case who has been responsible for bombing the debates of both my opponent and I: http://debatefans.com...

"I just read this a minute ago. PoeJoe, please tell KRF that he is now removed from the cleaner list. Thank you.

KRFournier, you were a cleaner right?

For a time, yes. I left when rumblings surfaced of getting even with Josh. I didn't want to get sucked in. Ultimately, I continued to write RFDs, just not under The Cleaners moniker. I did get vote bombed by Josh during that time, but not at this scale."

Ergo, my opponent has no reason to suspect that he shall be vote bombed. On the other hand, I have claimed myself to be a Cleaner to the bitter end, thus my suspicion remains.

RE:"The irony here is that whoever gets the fewest votes wins in principle."

LOL! Looks like I am guaranteed to win this debate then. :D

Josh, if you're reading, I vow to vote this debate AS A CLEANER!

There, vote Con... er... Pro... er... whatever.

My opponent forgets two things:

1) Josh generally doesn't read debates. He is merely interested in bombing them. Although possible, it's unlikely that he shall be reading this debate. :D

2) Josh is a nut job who is unable to admit anything which may be inconvenient to whatever ridiculous mindset he has. This can be seen on the comment section in the link I provided (most notably when I point out that his "conditions" for giving up on vote bombing keep changing only for him to flimsily deny this). He fancies the idea that the cleaners are evil, thus considers your comment as a convenience to his mindset.

Thanks for the debate. :D

Well, I'm certain this debate edified the entire debate.org community. The battle of wits exhibited here were extraordinary and awe inspiring. My opponent has made an air tight case against me, to which I must concede. Thanks to Josh, I couldn't even hope to legitimately win a debate. And now, thanks to him, I can't hope to win this one either.

Josh is like the Dark Knight's Joker: an agent of chaos. He destroys the best laid plans simply because some people like to watch the world burn. Well, if a Dark Knight is what Josh wants, then a Dark Knight I'll be... because Gotham needs a Dark Knight.



Thank you for your time L-M. I hope you're right, because I could use a win :)

Lol. On second thought, this is accurate. I forgot I conceded this one.

The results of this debate are funny now that Josh's votes have been removed.

It's ironic. For every Josh vote Fournier gets, more legitimate are prompted to go to LM, which only makes Josh have to vote Fournier further, which only gives more legitimate votes to LM, and so on. . . . It's recursive!

Conduct, English, and Sources were all ties. No insults, both used a few sources, and both have impeccable grasps on the Englsh language.

Argument I gave to PRO, because of. . . well, this debate IS being vote bombed. Also, PRO's evidence on debatefans.com was really powerful.
