The first round is acceptance (this is a joke debate)

Pro burden- The pro should lose
Con burden-The con should lose
AlwaysMoreThanYou

Con

I should lose because I'm committing a conduct violation by arguing although the first round is for acceptance.

Reasons for voting decision: "I should lose because I made no arguments" is a paradoxical statement in this case. Within the statement, you are essentially making an argument that you are not making an argument. Anyway, logically, the person who deserves to lose in this debate is the winner. The forfeit by Con basically would guarantee him a loss in a debate of a different nature. Therefore, he should win.
