Make your move...

For example, if you want to put X in the corner, you'd go:

**X
***
***

Then I will copy your move and add my own. Let's see how this plays out.

My opponent seems to be confused. I put my O in the center square, as shown:
"X**
*O*
***"
He shows my O in the top square:
"X0*
***
x**"
In any case, after my opponent's move, the board should be:
X**
*O*
X**

My move:
X**
OO*
X**

It is obvious how the rest of the game will play out:

Cat's game. I don't lose, which affirms the resolution.

Unless, of course, my opponent would like to disagree with any of the moves that I have predicted he will make?

"I agree with all his moves but he in fact has lost"
Oh, really?

"cease to have
-Wordnet.princeton.edu

and he has cease to have won"
I never actually did win the game at all, so I never could "cease" to have won.
Cease - to cause to come to an end especially gradually (http://www.merriam-webster.com...)
I never ended my act of winning this game of tic-tac-toe, because I never had an act of winning this game of tic-tac-toe.

Nice try at semantics, though.

Nope.

One implies a fault in me.

The other implies a fault in about half of the voters.

No, it means that many of the voters were biased.

The fact that I only won this debate by 7 points is... strange.

This debate is pointless. As we near debate 10000, do debates get more pointless?

Why does CON have any points at all? PRO won and then CON conceded...

It seems like the same mentality voters had during Tatarize's "I say God doesn't exist" debate. I'm with you and tend to simply not vote, but others may be more aggressive haha.
