0. By accepting this debate, my opponent agrees to all the rules already posted.

1. Rules created hold power over all rules posted later, and no later rule can contradict an earlier rule.

2. Both players should still have the ability to post rules in their turn.

3. A violation of a rule that is not null and void will result in the rule-breaker losing this debate. If both players break a rule, the player that breaks a rule first loses.

4. With the exception of the Instigator's first round, a player may only do something besides make rules to discuss whether one has broken a rule, or whether a rule is null, unless a future rule requires otherwise.

5. Not counting these foundation rules, each player can only create 3 rules per turn.

6. Each player must produce 3 rules per round or they forfeit.

7. Rules cannot result in an auto-win. Breaking a rule cannot result in the victory of the rule-breaker. Each player should have an opportunity to not break each rule, and an opportunity to discuss rule-breakage. Rules may not require players to do anything within specific time periods, nor may they require players to do anything outside of this debate.

8. A voter must default all categories to the victor of the debate.

9. All rules are assumed to only apply to future actions and rules.

10. Each player must document his or her rules using the numbers 11-25 for PRO and 26-40 for CON.

--------------------------

11. No rule posted by CON may discriminate between the individuals PRO and CON in any way beyond what may be required by the foundation rules.

12. CON must include exactly one palindromic sentence, one polysyndeton sentence, and one biblical allusion in each Round.

13. CON may not use any words not in the dictionary, according to this website:

1. One internet meme must be referenced.

2. Each user must write a 100 character remniscence of their middle school years. This is separate from the rest of the round.

3. Each user must write a backwards version of what they have written so far after the first writing.

Madam, I'm Adam. On seeing the Madam, I ran and jumped and laughed and smiled. When I saw the Madam, it was like I was seeing myself in a mirror, but all things darkly were removed. Over 9000 of my precious belongings were in the Madam's care.

I remember walking down the hallways. I rushed to get to class everyday. It was a bright clean hall.

14. In Rounds 2-5, CON must always reference himself in the third person.

15. In Round 2, CON must declare war on a foreign country of his choice, before posting any rules.

16. In Rounds 2-5, CON may not use the letter 'q'.

My opponent has broken Rule #4. His first paragraph after his Rule 3 in Round 1 is not making or discussing rules. This paragraph was never required by a previous rule, as the three literary devices could have been included in rules or discussions about the rules.

My opponent has broken Rule #10. He was required to number is rules using 26-40, but his rules in Round 1 are numbered 1, 2, and 3.

My opponent has broken Rule #12. He includes no biblical allusion in Round 1.

My opponent has broken Rule #13. He used the word "reminiscence," which isn't in the dicitonary.
http://www.merriam-webster.com...

My opponent has broken Rule #28 (labeled 3). While he wrote "It was a bright clean hall," for the backwards version, he wrote backwards "It was a bright clean room," which is incorrect.

Middle school was so weird. I really wished I could do a barrel roll, but I couldn't. I had friends.

By posting nothing, my opponent does not contest any rule-breakages that already exist. Additionally, he once again breaks Rule #12, and also breaks Rules #6 and #15. My opponent has now broken at least seven rules, and loses this debate.

17. CON must post a hyperlink to an image of a character from any anime series each round.

18. CON may not use the letter 'z'.

19. CON must use a number of characters in Round 3 that is a multiple of 1000.

You ask the question as if it is impossible.

Never expect sanity to trump vote-bombers.

just PM if you get votebombed, which I doubt will happen- I'd be glad to "help out". Why would a 3-round-forfeit of someone who literally is unknown on this site get vote-bombed?

m93, even though only one point is necessary right now, seven points would combat potential future vote-bombs, so a full vote would be appreciated.
